Operating instructions and explanatory videos on using the BMW ConnectedDrive services.

What’s available and how does it work? We introduce you to the most important services & apps and systems and show you in a few steps all that you need to know in order to use the services.

BMW ConnectedDrive Services & Apps

BMW i ConnectedDrive Services

  • Range display, battery and charging level, service messages or vehicle location: the BMW i Remote App supplies you with detailed information on the current status of your BMW i at all times.

  • The innovative refinement of the BMW i Remote App for the Samsung Gear S means that as from now you are no longer connected with your BMW i via your smartphone but also via your Smartwatch.

  • The quick and economical way: the connected BMW i Navigation guides you along the most efficient route to your destination.

BMW ConnectedDrive Driver Assistance

  • The Navigation system Professional offers drivers a design implemented completely in 3D combined with an innovative interface concept and numerous functions for navigation, office and multimedia. In its latest generation the Navigation System Professional in connection with BMW ConnectedDrive even carries out automatic updates of the navigation maps.

  • BMW Gesture Control allows for specified functions to be controlled with gestures. The latest-generation Navigation system Professional offers the possibility of intuitive operation via Touch Display.

  • With the Rear View Camera, which shows every obstacle in exact detail on the Control Display, you can also see everything behind you at all times.

  • With Side View you can “peek round the corner” at difficult exits even while your view of the situation is obscured.

  • There’s no more relaxed way to park: your vehicle displays suitable parking spaces and, when the Parking Assistant switch is pressed, parks your BMW automatically into the spot selected.

  • Parking at the push of a button: After you’ve already got out of the vehicle, it parks itself by moving forward into, or reversing out of, a tight parking space or garage.

  • Speed Limit Info incl. no-overtaking indicator shows you whether any speed restrictions apply or whether overtaking is currently prohibited.

  • Current speed, collision warnings, Speed Limit Info or control messages: the BMW Head-Up Display projects all the data relevant to the journey into your field of vision.

  • Travelling at night becomes much more relaxed. This is because when the High-Beam Assistant detects any vehicles ahead and oncoming traffic, it automatically dips the headlights and allows you to benefit from an especially effective continuous full beam.

  • The Lane Departure Warning registers lane markings and warns you as soon as you cross a marking to the left or right without indicating.

  • This service adapts your speed when required and maintains a distance from the vehicle ahead. And if that vehicle brakes sharply, you first receive an optical and then an acoustic signal. If you don’t respond by braking, your BMW will react and brake for you.

  • The Steering and lane control assistant including Traffic jam assistant can be activated to support the driver in monotonous traffic situations. Between 0 and 210 km/h, the system steers the vehicle automatically and always keeps the vehicle in the middle of the lane.

  • When another vehicle is approaching at high speed from behind or is in your blind spot, the Lane Change Warning helps you to appraise the situation correctly by issuing optical signals.

  • This service ensures that you always have clear vision and can thus master tight parking spaces and difficult exits. Thanks to cameras in the exterior mirrors and a Rear View Camera, Surround View gives a 270-degree all-round panorama view.
