Whenever great ideas, important decision or rapid replies are concerned, time is often the only luxury you cannot allow yourself. The dictation function in the vehicle transforms speech quickly and reliably into text that can be easily forwarded via e-mail or SMS.
In the BMW 7 Series Sedan you can compose messages safely and easily while on the move – with the Navigation system Professional, the Bluetooth connection and ConnectedDrive Services, you no longer need to actually hold your mobile phone. Thanks to the new dictation function in the vehicle and the offboard speech recognition by Nuance®, you can now dictate your written messages and always remain focused on the most important thing of all during the journey: the traffic.
The dictation function is simply activated with the iDrive Touch Controller via the Office menu and – on a server outside of the vehicle – converts what you say into a text message that can be sent immediately as an e-mail or SMS. The editing function offers you additional comfort, so that style and grammar don’t get left by the wayside during your journey.
After registering, you can use the dictation function free of charge in your vehicle for a period of 60 days. Continued use requires a contract with Nuance®. The dictation function and the sending of dictated e-mail and text messages depend on your mobile device. You will be able to find a list of compatible devices at: www.bmw.com/bluetooth.
