What is BMW ConnectedDrive?

BMW ConnectedDrive Navigation Map and Vehicle

Your new BMW is available with ConnectedDrive, an innovative infotainment system that pairs up with the ConnectedDrive app. BMW ConnectedDrive seamlessly integrates your favorite smart device apps with your BMW, giving you handsfree access while driving in your BMW convertible or SUV, and remote access to your vehicle when you’re not.

BMW ConnectedDrive App Benefits

Life doesn’t stop while you’re behind the wheel, but hands-free connectivity means you don’t have to delay important tasks because you’re driving. Your ConnectedDrive-equipped BMW X5 grants you access to contacts, messages, emails, texts, podcasts and more — and you hardly lift a finger! ConnectedDrive employs voice commands and a simple touchpad to access your apps and data. ConnectedDrive benefits include:

 

  • Access your apps. Sign into your accounts on Yelp, Pandora, Twitter, and more right from your BMW hands-free dashboard display. ConnectedDrive even reads your Facebook feed, emails, and texts out loud — so you won’t even feel tempted to take your eyes off the road.
  • Sync your data. Sync your contacts and calendar so you can stay on top of your schedule on-the-go- in Decatur.
  • Remote access. Unlock and start your BMW X7 engine remotely — and say goodbye to unheated cabins in the dead of Normal winter!
  • Organize with iDrive. You get a controller, screen, and touchpad for convenient control of your entertainment media, contacts, communications, navigation, and more.
