Emergency call function in the BMW Z4 Roadster.

In the case of an accident, help is now on hand quicker than ever before. As soon as the crash sensors on the vehicle are activated, you are automatically connected to the BMW Call Centre. The position of your vehicle as well as the data collected by the crash sensors (e.g. airbag activation or passenger occupancy) is evaluated and passed on. This ensures that the rescue services are fully informed as to the type of accident and are prepared when they arrive on the scene. If you witness an accident without being involved yourself, you can of course activate the emergency call manually.
