With the Remote Services of the BMW Connected App (available in the Apple App Store), various vehicle-related functions, such as locking and unlocking the car, can be operated remotely. Just as the BMW ConnectedDrive customer portal, the app also offers the opportunity to access vehicle information such as range or the status of the windows and doors. The programmable air conditioning and charging timer can ensure, for example, that the BMW i is fully charged and at a perfect temperature Monday through Friday before the driver leaves the house.
This information package is rounded out with the display of the vehicle’s current location. The vehicle’s location can also be indicated by honking the horn or flashing the lights, or on a map in the BMW Connected App. That way the driver is always fully informed about the status of the vehicle, even from a distance, and also has all information conveniently gathered together at one glance. To use this feature, customers simply need to activate Remote Services once in the BMW ConnectedDrive customer portal at www.bmw-connecteddrive.com.
