A world of opportunities.

BMW ConnectedDrive offers a range of intelligent services and products that make journeys in the BMW 6 Series Gran Turismo even safer and more comfortable. Driver assistance systems permit an especially relaxed driving style, keeps an eye on the traffic situation at all times and supports the driver with innovative comfort and assistance systems.

BMW 6 Series Gran Turismo Parked

The joy of parking.

Bid farewell to the time-consuming search for parking spaces, gaps that are too tight and tricky manoeuvres in small garages. Parking takes on an entirely new quality with the intelligent driver assistance systems and the digital services of BMW ConnectedDrive.

The optional Parking Assistant Plus makes parking and manoeuvring the vehicle easier. It features Surround View including Top View, Remote 3D View and the Parking Assistant with linear guidance, which parks the vehicle parallel or perpendicular to the lane completely automatically. The system works by measuring potential spaces while driving past them at a low speed.

On-Street Parking Information eases the search for a parking spot by supplying a probability display in cities for finding a free parking spot in the street, which appears in the BMW Navigation. By colouring in the streets on the navigation according to probability of parking spaces, the function shows drivers where to search first. This feature will be available late 2017.

The optional Remote Control Parking function allows the driver to conveniently get out of the vehicle before parking it via remote control by moving it forward into, or reversing out of, a tight parking space or garage. The Remote Control Parking function is activated by the driver once outside the car, with the BMW Display Key.

ConnectedDrive Services

ConnectedDrive services.

The BMW 6 Series Gran Turismo offers a selection of helpful optional BMW ConnectedDrive services. Intelligent technologies and services that connect drivers with the world around them, provide useful support during the journey and guarantee more safety.

The BMW Display Key shows various information about the vehicle's status and allows selected functions to be controlled via the integrated touch display.

The full-colour BMW Head-Up Display projects information that is situation-specific and relevant to the journey directly into the driver's field of vision, thereby allowing him or her to fully concentrate on driving. Data such as speed is displayed, along with navigation tips, Speed Limit Info including no-overtaking indicator, telephone and entertainment lists, and information and warnings from the various driver assistance systems. 

Concierge Services connects the driver to a BMW call centre agent at the push of a button. The agent can locate a particular restaurant, the nearest cash dispenser or an emergency pharmacy and send the details directly to the BMW navigation system.

Enhanced Bluetooth with wireless charging includes a wireless charging dock and additional USB ports. A roof aerial connection improves mobile reception. Two mobile telephones and an audio player can be connected simultaneously via Bluetooth.

Work productively on the commute. The perfect integration of Microsoft Office 365 in the vehicle allows emails, contacts and calendar entries to be constantly synchronised with other end devices and worked on directly – even without a smartphone in the car. An active Microsoft Office 365 account is required.

The equipment includes a built-in WiFi hotspot using the LTE standard, which allows for a paid internet connection. The vehicle is connected via the built-in SIM card with a fee-based hotspot plan from a service provider.

BMW Connected

BMW Connected.

BMW Connected facilitates mobility in everyday life. Information such as recommendations for the optimum departure time is available outside of the vehicle by iPhone or Apple Watch and thanks to BMW Connected Onboard is also accessible in the vehicle. Furthermore, Remote 3D View allows the surroundings of the parked vehicle to be viewed from a distance.

With Remote 3D View, the user can see the parked vehicle's surroundings from a distance on a smartphone. The function can be activated via the BMW Connected App (for iOS). It also allows the user to observe the area around the vehicle from a distance as a 3D image.

With BMW Connected Onboard, the driver has an overview of information relevant to mobility. The personalised screen shows content such as the next destinations and the personalised mobility agenda. This information can be forwarded to the navigation system and activated with just one click, thus sending the vehicle toward its next destination.
