BMW Connected is a personal mobility assistant which facilitates everyday mobility and aids drivers in reaching their destinations relaxed and on time. All relevant services are also remotely available at all times via iPhone®, Android-Smartphone, Samsung Gear S2/3 or Apple Watch® and can be used with the app. Customers can access this information in multiple vehicles if these have been added to their account.
Destinations that have been found in the web or via other application such as Yelp, Apple® Maps, Google Maps™ can be easily and conveniently imported into BMW Connected and seamlessly transferred to the vehicles navigation system with just a single click.
Now you can also interact with BMW Connected via Amazon Echo – access your mobility agenda or manage vehicle functions from home.
Meetings, including addresses and intended arrival times, saved in users’ iPhone® or Android calendars are automatically imported into the BMW Connected mobility agenda.
Based on current location and traffic conditions, BMW Connect calculates the recommended departure time, alerts users ahead of time and guides them on foot from the parked car to their final destination. If a delay is unavoidable due to unforeseeable traffic obstacles or if no parking space is available in the immediate vicinity of the final destination, users can send a text message via BMW connected to inform the waiting party of the estimated time of arrival, without having to physically use their phone.
In addition, BMW Connected learns to recognize frequent destinations and automatically adds them to the mobility agenda.
The BMW Connected App can be downloaded from the App Store® or on Google Play™.
