ConnectedDrive Services opens the door to the digital world of BMW. Use in-vehicle apps to stay fully up to date at all times regarding the news and weather. There is also an Office tool and an online search function. ConnectedDrive Services is a basic package that is needed when purchasing other digital services.

  • Apps

    The Apps equipment feature is a platform enabling convenient use of selected smartphone apps in BMW vehicles. To make a variety of apps available for their customers, BMW not only develops its own apps, such as BMW Connected App and the BMW M laptimer, but also works closely with partners like Spotify, Napster, GoPro, Deezer and Audible so that those apps can also be used safely inside the car. Simply attach a compatible smartphone to the vehicle via the Snap-in adapter or a smartphone USB cable, or wirelessly. All of the app's functions can then be conveniently operated via the iDrive Controller. The selection of apps available for use in the car is constantly expanding thanks to close partnerships between BMW and a variety of different suppliers.

  • BMW ConnectedDrive customer portal

    In the BMW ConnectedDrive customer portal, personal information and vehicle settings can be managed that are necessary or useful when using BMW ConnectedDrive functions in the car, in various apps or the BMW ConnectedDrive call centre. Services and apps suitable for specific vehicles can be purchased to meet individual needs from the integrated BMW ConnectedDrive Store. The customer can obtain useful information about the current status of his or her BMW in the separate function area, e.g. about mileage, remaining range, status of the doors, tailgate and windows, necessary maintenance and Check Control messages. Additionally, the current vehicle location, weather at that location and technical vehicle data are shown. Remote Services can be activated and executed from the control section. The vehicle can be pre-heated or cooled for a particular departure time, unlocked or locked, the horn activated or the lights flashed. The current vehicle location is displayed on a map along with the current traffic situation. Points of interest can be searched for and sent to the vehicle. The interface design of the function area is based on the Control Display of the vehicle as well as the BMW ConnectedDrive Apps, and is also optimised for use on smartphones or tablets.

  • Preparation for Apple CarPlay®

    Why go without the features of your iPhone in your BMW when you can continue operating it as usual? The preparation for Apple CarPlay® gives you remote access to telephony as well as apps like iMessage, WhatsApp, TuneIn, Spotify and Apple Music. You can also use the voice button on the steering wheel to access Siri, Apple’s voice assistant.

  • Microsoft Office 365

    Work in your vehicle as if you were in your office with Microsoft Office 365. Dictate emails, take part in Skype for Business meetings, access your contacts and coordinate appointments in your calendar – all through your smartphone. Your existing Microsoft Office 365 Business account makes you just as productive on the road as behind the desk.


Connect with your BMW. The BMW Connected app is your digital mobility assistant which takes care of your needs before and during your journey. Access your car using your smartphone, smartwatch or Amazon Echo, send destinations to the navigation system or receive reminders for meetings to make sure you arrive there on time.


Will it be sunny tomorrow in Rome? When is my flight and where is the best restaurant in the city? Concierge Services are there to help when you are travelling and can support you with any request at the touch of a button – individual, personal and fast. Wherever you are, whatever you need. The term is three years.


Why waste time in traffic jams? Real Time Traffic Information lets you reach your destination faster and more effectively. It monitors the current traffic situation virtually in real-time and calculates alternative routes. The local hazard warning system is an additional feature that alerts you to adverse road conditions or accidents.


If there is an accident, time is of the essence. Intelligent Emergency Call gets help and can even save lives in case of an emergency. It contacts specially trained call centre agents who offer support to you and your passengers until the emergency services arrive. The first responders also receive important information directly.


Did I lock my car doors? Where exactly is it parked? Remote Services allows you to access your vehicle from a distance using the BMW Connected app. Flash your headlights, activate the climate control function inside your car or lock your BMW from anywhere using your smartphone.


Listen to your favourite music wherever you are. Classical on the motorway, jazz during rush hour and pop when you’re cruising. With Online Entertainment, you can directly stream as many as 30 million songs without any limits courtesy of BMW’s music partners, Deezer and Napster, using the SIM card installed in your vehicle.



Take part in video conference calls on your tablet or stream the final episode of your favourite series on your smartphone. The Wi-Fi Hotspot is a way to go online with LTE speed (if available) using the SIM card installed in your vehicle. You and your fellow passengers can surf the Web on up to ten devices.
