Up to 40 seconds of video footage of your surroundings.
Automatic documentation is triggered when critical traffic situations occur.
And you can shoot videos manually at the press of a button.

Automatically or manually – the BMW Drive Recorder films your surroundings for up to 40 seconds. This allows you to document critical driving situations in road traffic without having to do anything more. With the BMW Drive Recorder, you can also collect wonderful memories of especially beautiful routes at the press of a button. Integrated cameras mean that it is easy to shoot videos.




Occasionally, critical situations occur on the road. Thanks to BMW Drive Recorder you can see exactly what happened around your vehicle, together with the date, the precise time, the speed you were travelling and the GPS position, after the journey.

If your BMW detects that an accident is taking place, it will automatically store a video clip via the cameras of the driver assistance systems. To obtain a complete picture of the incident, your BMW Drive Recorder records the preceding seconds before the vehicle comes to a standstill, so that you don’t miss a thing.

But you can also capture the highlights of your journey with the BMW Drive Recorder. At the press of a button, you can record and store especially impressive landscapes or a holiday sunset, for example, via the iDrive controller. And, it is just as easy to watch, export or delete as it is to film.

After purchase in the ConnectedDrive Store, the function is automatically loaded in your vehicle and available within a short while.

Once it has been enabled, you will find a detailed description of the function in your vehicle’s integrated operating manual.
