BMW ConnectedDrive.

BMW i is more than just an electric car—it brings together innovative mobility services and a new understanding of sustainability. The BMW ConnectedDrive Services which are available in your BMW i3 (with BMW i Navigation as standard) creates innovative connections between you, your car and the world around you. They are at the heart of this concept. Synchronising everything together seamlessly it creates an intelligent, comprehensive, and sustainable experience.

BMW i Navigation.

BMW i Navigation with its fully networked BMW ConnectedDrive Services has been developed to make driving a BMW i as easy and convenient as possible. The centrepiece of BMW i Navigation is the Range Assistant with dynamic Range Map which clearly displays the maximum distance you can travel in any direction from your current location. To do this it takes account of all factors that are important for route navigation, including battery charge level, driving style, traffic conditions, and the terrain of your route. Using BMW ConnectedDrive Real Time Traffic Information (RTTI), the ECO ROUTE calculation incorporates a traffic prediction, the most efficient route estimated in real time with the nearest available charging points taken into account.

BMW i Remote App.

The BMW i Remote App for iOS and Android shows you detailed information on the current status of your BMW i, for example - car location, range and battery charge level, service messages and information on whether the doors are locked. The charging process can be started remotely using the weekly timer and the air-conditioning can be activated by remote control right before you set off on a trip. The dynamic Range Map is also integrated into the BMW i Remote App. Destinations and locations of charging stations can be sent easily from your phone directly to your car. The BMW i Remote App also measures the efficiency of each journey and gives helpful tips on how to drive the car more efficiently to extend the range. The efficiency of each journey can be shared with others and compared, anonymously if you choose.

BMW ECO Route finds the best route – for the range and the environment.

BMW TeleServices.

New BMW TeleServices are designed to monitor the BMW i3 and were developed specifically for the needs of fully electric cars.
The Battery Guard, for example, helps BMW i3 owners by monitoring the battery and telling you if something unexpected happens during charging. 

BMW ConnectedDrive.

Building on the comprehensive range of existing BMW ConnectedDrive Services, special attention has been made to develop an enhanced range of features tailored for the requirements of an electric driver.
Collectively referred to as BMW ConnectedDrive Services, these new innovations include navigation services and the BMW i Remote App. In addition, there is a Bluetooth interface for hands-free mobile functions and web-based BMW Online services offer access to information on everything you need, not just your destination.
