Other services from BMW ConnectedDrive

New BMW 3-Series Sedan customers can order a selection of innovative remote functions from BMW ConnectedDrive designed to provide the driver with personalised assistance and therefore enhanced comfort on the road. In addition to its role with Advanced eCall, the BMW call centre also performs an information service which allows the driver to access a wide range of information - tailored to personal requirements - from the car. The driver can, for example, request a search of hotels and restaurants, which are then displayed in the navigation system. The interactive communication portal My Info and the Send-to-Car function allow information, telephone numbers and addresses to be sent to the car from the driver's home before he sets off. These can then be accessed without further delay via the in-car system. The BMW TeleServices package, meanwhile, includes automatic arrangement of service appointments. Here, the condition of consumable items established by the Condition Based Service on-board diagnosis system is transmitted by telephone to the customer's BMW Service partner. Plus, subject to identity verification, customers can have their vehicle locked or unlocked remotely, or locate it using the metre-accurate vehicle finder function.

The new BMW 3-Series Sedan also allows those on board to search for information relevant to their journey using Google Services. Customers can also avail themselves of the Google Local Search function while in their car to download and use local information straight from the world's best-known online search engine. The car's current location and destination are automatically stored and the results from the Google Maps database in the local area displayed, complete with address, telephone number and distance from the car. All the results are also pinpointed on Google Maps, and the Pictures at Destination service provides drivers with additional orientation guidance. When the navigation system is switched on, images of the destination are made available via Google's Panoramio website. All of which adds up to an interlinked navigation service that aids even easier journey planning.
