BMW Connected App Features.
Control your car wherever you are. Locate your vehicle in a busy parking lot, lock doors, monitor fuel levels, and check the status of the windows, trunk or hood – directly from your device.
Remote Engine Start.
With Remote Engine Start, your BMW’s ready to go when you are. Heat or cool your car before your next trip by easily starting the engine from the BMW Connected app. You can choose to either start the engine immediately, or schedule it for later with the Climate Timer feature. Remote Engine Start is available as a factory-installed option for certain new BMW models.
With just a few taps, you can find out when your next service is due, monitor tire pressure, and check for safety recalls. The app will also notify you of any upcoming service appointments.
Service Appointment Scheduling.
Schedule your next BMW service appointment with just a few taps. Simply select the Schedule Service button from the BMW Retailers menu, choose a service package or individual service, indicate your preferred date & time, and book.
Remote 3D View.
Keep an eye on your BMW at any time. With the available Remote 3D View feature, you can see your vehicle’s parked surroundings from any perspective, via a 3D image on your device.
Based on live traffic data, the BMW Connected App will notify you when it’s time to depart for your next scheduled appointment, so you can arrive at your destination relaxed and on time.
The BMW Connected App learns to recognize frequent destinations based on driving patterns, so you can seamlessly store them in your BMW’s navigation system.
If you’ve parked a few blocks away from your destination, simply tap on “Walking directions to destination”, and you will be guided on foot via your Apple iPhone® or Apple Watch®.
Control all your BMW vehicles, from one device. The Multi-Vehicle Management feature allows you to seamlessly switch between vehicles to enable Remote Services, check service requirements, and much more.
Share Live Trip Status.
Using the "Share Live Trip Status" feature, you can let others know about your exact location, your destination, and your arrival time. The information from your journey can be tracked in real-time by the recipients.
Send to Vehicle.
Search for new destinations within the BMW Connected App and send them directly to the BMW navigation system. As soon as you are in the vehicle and connected to your smartphone via Bluetooth, you can start the vehicle guidance with one click.
