BMW Connected App: the next step in connecting car and driver
BMW Connected seamlessly integrates a BMW into your digital life. Initially available for Apple users, the BMW Connected app works first and foremost to improve how easily you can manage your journey.
Scanning for any relevant information, such as addresses and meeting times contained in your calendar entries, the app notifies you of the ideal departure time, based on real-time traffic information and your personal travel patterns. The app can also identify places and points of interest from other smartphone apps, and then import them to your BMW’s in-car navigation with one touch of a button. What’s more, the app even works when you’re not in your car, providing journey guidance when you’re walking as well.
Besides all this, BMW Remote Services have also been incorporated, allowing you to access a variety of functions, such as interior ventilation, vehicle locking and unlocking, and flashing of headlights to help you locate your car – all controlled remotely via your smartphone. You can even see your BMW’s current location on your phone. Launched in August 2016, BMW Connected will be available as a free download from the Apple App Store, and can be used in BMWs with the BMW ConnectedDrive Services activated, a standard feature on all new BMWs since January 2016. In total, there are approximately 400,000 BMWs capable of using this service in the UK, so contact us to find out if yours can too.
