CONNECTED NAVIGATION.

BMW’s Connected Navigation gets you where you want to go with remarkable accuracy and extremely fast calculations using Real Time Traffic Information. What’s more, you can find your destination using a keyword search, just like you are used to with navigation apps on your smartphone. The cloud-based dynamic route calculation is able to quickly and constantly adapt route recommendations. And when calculating time of arrival, the system uses future traffic volume along the entire route, including smaller roads. This comprehensive traffic data also enables the system to recommend the fastest route.

  • Intuitive operation, like your smartphone
  • Destination entry via free search
  • Cloud-based dynamic route calculation
  • Fast recalculation of the route in case of changing traffic conditions

CONNECTED PARKING.

As part of the route guidance, Connected Parking proactively suggests the best parking options in the immediate vicinity. You can even pre-set a parking garage or street parking. If you choose a parking garage, the best one close to your destination will be displayed. If you choose an on-street parking, the route to your destination with the highest likelihood of finding a parking space close to your destination will be suggested.

In addition to all this, your BMW gives you general information about the parking situation at your chosen destination. Parking facilities with empty spaces will be added to the navigation map and streets will be highlighted if the probability of finding a parking space there is high. Recently vacated parking spaces are also displayed in the navigation system.

Benefits:

  • No need to look for parking
  • Navigation to the next available parking spot
  • Shows spaces in parking garages
  • Recommends route with the best parking possibilities
  • General information on parking situation at destination
