The ConnectedDrive Services option forms the basis for BMW ConnectedDrive functions, which provide the driver with a wide range of information, entertainment and service features while on the road.


With Remote Services and the free My BMW Remote App (available in the Apple App Store and Google Play Store), various vehicle-related functions, such as locking and unlocking the car, can be operated remotely.

It is also possible to directly transmit destination addresses found using the Google™ search engine to a navigation system if one is available.

In addition, the car's location can be shown within a radius of 1.5 km. To use this feature, customers simply need to activate Remote Services once in the ''My BMW ConnectedDrive'' customer portal at:

Real Time Traffic Information (RTTI) provides the most up-to-date traffic information at all times.

Precise details about the location and duration of delays is transmitted, in order to keep the driver informed, nearly in real time, about the current traffic situation on highways, country roads and on many routes within the city. Intelligent alternative route suggestions help the driver reach their destination as quickly and efficiently as possible. The data is drawn from such sources as anonymous movement profiles from the GPS data of vehicle fleets, smartphone apps and police reports, and also takes into account established traffic patterns such as peak commute times.

The traffic information is clearly presented, with the roads depicted in green, yellow, orange and red.


The intelligent emergency call guarantees fast, targeted assistance round-the-clock as well as support from trained staff.

If an accident takes place involving the deployment of an airbag or the belt tensioners (for example), the system automatically issues an emergency call. Relevant details such as the exact position of the car, the severity of the accident and the possible risk of injury to occupants are transmitted to the BMW call centre via the car’s built-in SIM card, i.e. independent of a private mobile phone. The BMW call centre will inform the nearest rescue coordination centre and provide assistance over the phone until the rescue services arrive. The emergency call can also be triggered manually in case other road users require help, for example.

Concierge Services from BMW ConnectedDrive gives you a taste of what it's like to have your own personal butler.

At the push of a button the driver is connected with a BMW Call Centre agent who acts as an assistant on the road.

From a particular restaurant to the nearest ATM or a chemist – the BMW Call Centre agent is there to help and can even send information directly to the navigation system. Concierge Services operate independently of the driver's mobile phone and are available in their home country and abroad, around-the-clock, seven days a week and at no extra cost.


The internet option provides access to the web on the car's high-resolution Control Display. So the driver can use the internet just like on their computer at home. The URL is entered simply and conveniently using the iDrive Controller or selected from the bookmark list for fast access.
With the data flat rate for internet use, users can surf the web directly from the car nationwide (no roaming). The websites are shown on the Control Display. In vehicles with rear-seat entertainment Professional, passengers in the rear can also use the internet via flat screens integrated into the front seats.
