BMW Connected+, an extension of BMW Connected, integrates the app even deeper into your daily journey with your BMW. Enjoy a more seamless experience between all BMW Connected touchpoints and your BMW and benefit from personalised services powered by BMW’s Open Mobility Cloud.


Whether out and about in your car, in one of those in-between moments via smartphone or at home via Amazon Alexa: BMW Connected offers the ideal interface to your BMW for every situation – so you always arrive at your destination relaxed and on time.

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.


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.


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.


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.


Looking for your car in a crowded car park? With the Remote Services of BMW Connected, you can save yourself the inconvenience of a long search. Also, various vehicle-related functions, such as locking and unlocking the car, can be operated remotely. The vehicle’s location can also be indicated by flashing the lights, or displayed on a map in BMW Connected.

If you don’t feel like scraping ice off the windows in winter and would like to get into a warm car, you can set the cabin temperature of your BMW in advance.

Depending on the outside and inside temperature your vehicle will turn on either the auxiliary heating** or the auxiliary ventilation***.

* Available only for BMW i and BMW iPerformance models
** This requires the optional equipment item auxiliary heating
*** Depending on the series and model, some vehicles require additional optional equipment for automatic air conditioning in order to operate the “Climate-auxiliary ventilation” function

These images can also be saved to the user's smartphone for later viewing. The Remote 3D View function can be activated up to three times within a two-hour period.
