CONCIERGE SERVICE.

CONCIERGE SERVICE.

For anyone who has ever wanted to know what it is like to have their own personal butler, here is a chance: Concierge Services from BMW ConnectedDrive. At the touch of a button, one is put through to the BMW Call Centre agents who are available as “personal assistants” for the driver on the road. Whether one is looking for a particular restaurant, the nearest cash dispenser or an emergency pharmacy – a BMW Call Centre agent is there to help and can send address details directly to the navigation system on demand. Concierge Services operates independently of the driver’s mobile phone and is available at home and abroad round the clock, seven days a week at no extra cost. ConnectedDrive Services is required in order to use this function.

CONNECTED DRIVE SERVICES.

ConnectedDrive Services provides the driver with a wide range of information, entertainment and service features on the road.
These include BMW Online, which gives access to current, localised information such as weather, news, online search and also office functions. It is also possible to assemble an individualised array of services such as webcams, parking information and travel or hotel guides.
This option also includes convenient, secure and unlimited access to smartphone apps such as BMW Connected. The equipment option ConnectedDrive Services offers many more such options, making every trip in a BMW a real driving experience.

REAL TIME TRAFFIC INFORMATION.

Real Time Traffic Information (RTTI) provides the most up-to-date traffic information at all times. Precise details of the time and duration of hold-ups are relayed virtually in real time. The data is drawn from such sources as movement profiles from the mobile phone network, the GPS data of vehicle fleets, smartphone apps and police reports. This data is analysed so precisely that it is possible to localise traffic congestion to the nearest few metres. This enables RTTI to provide information in real time on the current traffic situation on motorways, main roads, country roads and numerous urban routes, and to recommend sound alternative routes.
Only available in conjunction with the optional equipment ConnectedDrive Services.

DICTATION FUNCTION.

With the Navigation System Professional, a Bluetooth connection and ConnectedDrive Services, picking up the phone is no longer necessary. All text can now be entered vocally. The dictation function allows spoken messages to be converted into text, which can then be sent as emails or text messages. The dictation function can also be used to compose Facebook and Twitter posts with BMW apps. The dictation function is available free of charge for the first 60 days, after which a fee-based contract with Nuance® is required.
More information on Bluetooth compatibility with smartphones and other mobile devices is available at <NSC specific>.

INTELLIGENT EMERGENCY CALL.

Intelligent emergency call permits fast, targeted assistance round-the-clock as well as support by trained staff – in the driver’s native language, even abroad. If a serious accident takes place involving activation of an air bag or the belt tensioners, an intelligent emergency call is automatically issued. 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. independently of a private mobile phone. The BMW Call Centre will inform the nearest rescue coordination centre and provide assistance the over the phone until the rescue services arrive. The emergency call can also be triggered manually in case others on the road require help, for example.
