BMW Connected Features.


With BMW Connected your smartphone and your vehicle become one. Like a personal assistant, BMW Connected gets to know you better, bringing you even more driving pleasure for the future. Sometimes life can be so easy.


Destinations that have been found on the web or on smartphone apps such as Yelp, Apple® Maps or Google Maps® can be easily, seamlessly and conveniently transferred to the vehicle. Even meetings saved in the user’s smartphone calendar which include full address details are automatically imported into BMW Connected along with the intended arrival time. A recommended departure time, based on current traffic conditions is calculated. It takes only single click to conveniently import a selected destination in the vehicle’s integrated navigation system.


BMW Connected will inform users of recommended departure times via iPhone®, Android Smartphone, Samsung Gear S2/3 or Apple Watch® to ensure they arrive at their next scheduled destination on time. The system calculates recommended departure times based on current vehicle location and real-time traffic data.


Get to your appointments relaxed and on time – with the BMW Connected App Door-to-door navigation. Once at their destination, users can use their iPhone®, Apple Watch®, Android Smartphone or Samsung Gear S2/3 to be guided from their parked car to their final destination on foot


The BMW Connected App learns to recognize frequent destinations based on driving patterns and provides drivers with the option of automatically saving them into a personal mobility agenda. Saving destinations manually is no longer necessary. These destinations can be seamlessly imported into the car’s integrated navigation system with a single click.


With the Remote Services of the BMW Connected App (available in the App Store® and on Google Play™), various vehicle-related functions, such as locking and unlocking the car, can be operated remotely. 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 off with the display of the vehicle’s current location. The vehicle’s location can also be indicated by sounding the horn or flashing the lights, or on a map in the BMW Connected App. This 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


* Requires the auxiliary heating equipment option. Depending on the series and model, some vehicles need the additional special equipment option of automatic climate control for the “Climatic auxiliary heating” function.



With Remote 3D View, the user can conveniently see the parked vehicle's surroundings on a smartphone. The Remote 3D View function can be activated via the BMW Connected App (for iOS). It allows the user to quickly and easily observe the area around the vehicle, for example during a storm. The image is displayed as a 3D representation, allowing the user to see various perspectives. Remote 3D view can be activated three times within two hours.


With BMW Connected Onboard, the driver has a constant overview of information relevant to mobility. The personalised screen shows individual and context-oriented content such as the next destinations and the personalised mobility agenda. This information can be forwarded directly to the navigation system, for example, and activated with just one click, so that the vehicle can reach its next destination smoothly. During the drive, the driver has constant access to BMW Connected Onboard.


You can now also interact with BMW Connected via your Amazon Echo – access your mobility agenda or manage your vehicle functions from home. BMW Connected, your personal digital mobility assistant, can now interact with all Amazon Echo devices via Alexa.


BMW Connected in Amazon Alexa - manage your mobility agenda and vehicle functions from home.

BMW is the first car maker to support integration with Alexa, enabling vehicle functions to be operated from users’ homes by voice. With inclusion in the Alexa voice control for your home, BMW Connected is therefore now integrated into users’ digital lives through an additional touchpoint – the home – alongside the iPhone®, Apple Watch®, and Android smartphones and -smartwatches.
