The concept

After the mobile phone is paired once with the vehicle, the mobile phone can be operated via iDrive, the steering wheel buttons and via voiceactivated command.

A paired mobile phone is automatically detected as soon as it is located inside the vehicle, when the ignition is switched on.

Up to four mobile phones can be paired.

Certain functions may need to be enabled by the mobile service provider.

driving Using the mobile phone while driving

Make entries only when traffic and road conditions allow. Do not hold the mobile phone in your hand while you are driving; use the hands-free system instead. If you do not observe this precaution, you can endanger the vehicle occupants and other road users.
