BMW Assist turns your BMW into your personal travel manager. Its automatic emergency and breakdown assistance with vehicle location feature increases passenger safety. En route, current traffic conditions are monitored and an alternative route is recommended if congestion threatens. BMW Assist also provides useful information, for example, about hotels and restaurants, and addresses can be transferred directly to the navigation system.
The BMW Online internet portal provides individually configured information such as news and business updates. From available parking spaces to the address of the nearest chemist or cinema, BMW Online provides invaluable assistance throughout your journey. With its address book, e-mail and information applications, BMW Online enables you to transform your BMW into a mobile office.
Thanks to BMW ConnectedDrive, the internet can be used freely for the first time in an automobile. You can enter the address of any website you require or open a site directly using one of the favourite buttons. The iDrive Controller in the central console functions in the same way as a standard computer mouse.
Get to your destination faster and safer with the optional navigation system Professional. For increased safety, the optional Voice Control allows you to specify new destinations by stating just one sentence without having to remove your hands from the steering wheel. Satellite images and 3D route maps can be displayed on the high-resolution 8.8-inch screen next to one another using the split-screen mode.
Unlimited, voice-controlled communication and maximum comfort: the preparation for mobile phones with a Bluetooth interface and hands-free controls is compatible with a range of different makes of mobile phone, which can all be connected effortlessly using phone-specific adaptors (also available for the Apple iPhone). The phone system is activated via the multifunction steering wheel and Voice Control feature, and the external aerial ensures you can always contact the outside world when on the open road.
The universal connection point: the optional USB/audio interface lets you connect practically any audio device into the BMW 6 Series Coupé's sound system. Standard MP3 players connect via the USB port. The auxiliary input (AUX IN) socket lets you connect devices via a cable from their headphone socket - from DAT recorders to MiniDisc players.
