BMW ConnectedDrive Services & Apps in the BMW ActiveHybrid 5.
Communication, information and entertainment – experience mobility in a completely new way with the Services & Apps from BMW ConnectedDrive.
CONNECTED DRIVE SERVICES.
ConnectedDrive Services provides you with a wide range of information, entertainment and service features on the road.
These include BMW Online, which gives you access to current, localized information such as weather, news, online search and also office functions. It is also possible to put together individualised services such as webcams, parking information and travel or hotel guides.
This option also includes secure and unlimited access to smartphone apps such as BMW Connected.
Take your office with you: with the office function you can use the e-mail and texting function of your Bluetooth smartphone inside the car. Message dictation converts spoken messages into text which you can then send by e-mail or text message using a smartphone connected via Bluetooth. With the Navigation System Professional, a Bluetooth connection and ConnectedDrive Services, you’ll no longer need to pick up your phone. For information on the Bluetooth compatibility of your smartphone and other mobile end devices, see www.bmw.com/bluetooth.
Message dictation is available free of charge for the first 60 days. A contract with Nuance® is necessary for ongoing use.
Bluetooth Office allows you to use the time spent in the car more effectively. The connection of Bluetooth and USB devices means you can conveniently organise your day-to-day life when out and about. E-mails, dates, tasks and text messages are shown on the Control Display or read aloud over the audio speakers. You will find a list of all compatible mobile phones and smartphones at www.bmw.com/bluetooth.
INTELLIGENT EMERGENCY CALL.
The intelligent emergency call permits fast, targeted assistance round-the-clock as well as support by trained staff – in your language even if you are abroad. If a serious accident takes place involving activation of an airbag 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 other road users require help, for example.
Have you always wanted to know what it feels like to have your own personal butler? This is your opportunity: Enjoy a very special kind of service – BMW ConnectedDrive Concierge Services.
At the touch of a button you are put through to our BMW Call Centre agents who are available to you as "personal assistants" while you are on the road.
Whether you are looking for a particular restaurant, the nearest cash dispenser or an emergency pharmacy - the BMW Call Centre agent is there to help and can send address details directly to your navigation system if you wish. The agent can even place a reservation at a restaurant or book a hotel room for you.

Additionally, the location of the vehicle can also be displayed. To use this feature, customers simply need to activate Remote Services once in the "My BMW ConnectedDrive " customer portal at www.bmw-connecteddrive.com.
REAL TIME TRAFFIC INFORMATION.
Real Time Traffic Information (RTTI) provides you with the most up-to-date traffic information at all times. Precise details of the time and duration of holdups 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 500 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, as well as recommending sound alternative routes.
Only available in conjunction with the optional equipment ConnectedDrive Services.
