REMOTE SERVICES.

With BMW Connected for iOS and Android, detailed information about the current status of the vehicle can be accessed at any time, for example the range or charge status. An efficiency analysis helps the driver to drive as efficiently as possible, achieving the greatest possible range.
In addition, the programmable air conditioning and charge scheduling functions can ensure, for example, that the BMW i is fully charged and at a perfect temperature Monday through Friday before the driver leaves for work. The map function displays points of interest and available charging stations, and sends their locations directly to the vehicle. That includes ChargeNow charging stations from the 360° ELECTRIC portfolio.

BMW i CONNECTED DRIVE SERVICES FOR NAVIGATION.

BMW i ConnectedDrive services for navigation offer you all the information to make electric driving easier and more convenient. At the centre of these services is the range assistant with dynamic range map, which takes account of key factors such as the charge level of the battery, your driving style, topography and also the current traffic conditions. If the assistant detects that one of these factors will prevent you from reaching your destination, it uses ECO ROUTE to recommend alternative routes that consume less power or switching to the efficient ECO PRO+ driving mode, or it shows you charging stations on the way to your destination.

  • Intermodal routing

    If alternative means of transport will take you to your destination faster, you will be offered intermodal routing solutions on your navigation system. Stations and timetables will appear in the display, and to continue your journey smoothly with public transport, you then simply leave your vehicle in a Park + Ride car park. The BMW i navigation unit will direct you to the parking spot and then show you how your journey by public transport goes on from there. And when on foot, too, you will be directed conveniently with BMW Connected.
    You can currently use the Connected Mobility solutions in the following countries and cities: Germany (Munich, Berlin, Hamburg, Leipzig, Düsseldorf, Cologne, Frankfurt), Austria (Vienna), Netherlands (Amsterdam), Denmark (Copenhagen), Norway (Oslo), Sweden (Stockholm), France (Paris), United Kingdom (London), Italy (Rome), China (Beijing, Shanghai, Shenzhan), Taiwan (Taipeh).

BMW DIGITAL CHARGING SERVICE.

The BMW Digital Charging Service (DCS) makes charging your BMW i or BMW iPerformance even more individual and efficient. On the basis of your preset electricity tariff, DCS determines the most cost-efficient period for charging your vehicle in each case and independently controls the charging process to take this into account. At the same time, DCS always guarantees a fully charged vehicle at the departure time you have indicated. Embedded into the range of ConnectedDrive Services, DCS can be operated quite easily via your mobile device and the customary frontends (iDrive, ConnectedDrive Portal, BMW Connected).


And because renewable energy and eletromobility belong together, you can charge your BMW i or BMW iPerformance model sustainably with electricity you produce yourself from your own solar energy system. Based on the individual energy demand of your vehicle and the weather forecast specially prepared for you, your vehicle will then be charged when there is sufficient sunshine.
