Send my routes to car.

Destinations that have been found on the web or on smartphone apps such as Yelp, Apple Maps or Google Maps can be easily, seamlessly and conveniently transferred to the vehicle. Meetings, including intended arrival times, saved in the user’s smartphone calendar are automatically imported into BMW Connected. A recommended departure time, based on current traffic conditions is calculated. It takes a single click to conveniently import a selected destination in the vehicle’s integrated navigation system.

BMW Connected+

Share live trip status.

Using the BMW Connected+ feature “Share Live Trip Status”, you can let others have details of your journey, live and in real time. To do this, send a link to a selected contact, who will then be able to access a map view with your current position, destination and estimated time of arrival. If the arrival time should change dramatically, BMW Connected+ will send a message automatically.

Time-to-leave notification.

BMW Connected will inform users of recommended departure times via iPhone or Apple Watch to ensure they arrive at their next scheduled destination on time. The system calculates recommended departure times based on current vehicle location and real-time traffic data.

My destinations.

The BMW Connected App learns to recognise frequent destinations based on driving patterns and provides drivers with the option of automatically saving them in the system. Saving destinations manually is no longer necessary. These destinations can be seamlessly imported into the car’s integrated navigation system with a single click. When you are searching for a destination in your vehicle, BMW Connected+ allows you to access all your personal addresses.
