Extremely practical: BMW TeleServices books your BMW in for a service, for example, and connects you easily and quickly with BMW Mobile Care.
BMW i Remote App
Range display, battery and charging level, service messages or vehicle location: the BMW i Remote App supplies you with detailed information on the current status of your BMW i at all times.
BMW i Remote App for Samsung Gear S
The innovative refinement of the BMW i Remote App for the Samsung Gear S means that as from now you are no longer connected with your BMW i via your smartphone but also via your Smartwatch.
BMW i Navigation
The quick and economical way: the connected BMW i Navigation guides you along the most efficient route to your destination.
Navigation system Professional
The Navigation system Professional offers drivers a design implemented completely in 3D combined with an innovative interface concept and numerous functions for navigation, office and multimedia. In its latest generation the Navigation System Professional in connection with BMW ConnectedDrive even carries out automatic updates of the navigation maps.
Rear View camera
With the Rear View Camera, which shows every obstacle in exact detail on the Control Display, you can also see everything behind you at all times.
With Side View you can “peek round the corner” at difficult exits even while your view of the situation is obscured.
There’s no more relaxed way to park: your vehicle displays suitable parking spaces and, when the Parking Assistant switch is pressed, parks your BMW automatically into the spot selected.
Speed Limit Info
Speed Limit Info incl. no-overtaking indicator shows you whether any speed restrictions apply or whether overtaking is currently prohibited.
BMW Head-Up Display
Current speed, collision warnings, Speed Limit Info or control messages: the BMW Head-Up Display projects all the data relevant to the journey into your field of vision.
Dazzle-free High-Beam Assistant
Travelling at night becomes much more relaxed. This is because when the High-Beam Assistant detects any vehicles ahead and oncoming traffic, it automatically dips the headlights and allows you to benefit from an especially effective continuous full beam.
Lane Departure Warning
The Lane Departure Warning registers lane markings and warns you as soon as you cross a marking to the left or right without indicating.
Active Cruise Control with Stop & Go
This service adapts your speed when required and maintains a distance from the vehicle ahead. And if that vehicle brakes sharply, you first receive an optical and then an acoustic signal. If you don’t respond by braking, your BMW will react and brake for you.
Lane Change Warning
When another vehicle is approaching at high speed from behind or is in your blind spot, the Lane Change Warning helps you to appraise the situation correctly by issuing optical signals.
This service ensures that you always have clear vision and can thus master tight parking spaces and difficult exits. Thanks to cameras in the exterior mirrors and a Rear View Camera, Surround View gives a 270-degree all-round panorama view.
