BMW ConnectedDrive In touch with your world.

BMW CONNECTED DRIVE – FOR MORE CONVENIENCE, INFOTAINMENT AND SAFETY. Wherever the road may take you, you’ll always be in touch, thanks to BMW ConnectedDrive. These advanced safety, convenience and infotainment capabilities make any trip easier and more pleasurable than ever before.

Every day, our world is becoming increasingly networked. Many BMW drivers, however, are better connected than the rest, obtaining information on the road, communicating by phone or email, and always updated on the latest events. BMW ConnectedDrive encompasses all these services, including traffi c features that allow BMW vehicles and their occupants to network with the outside world. Active Cruise Control with Stop & Go function and Front Collision Warning System lets you preset both desired speed and following distance. When Active Cruise Control recognizes slower vehicles ahead, it reduces your speed to maintain a preset distance. Once the lane ahead becomes free, the system accelerates up to the desired speed. In slow-moving traffi c, Stop & Go can bring you to a complete stop, if needed. The Front Collision Warning System alerts you if your vehicle is in danger of running into the vehicle ahead. If necessary, the brake system also prepares to engage. Even when not using the Active Cruise Control technology, the Front Collision Warning System is still active. Top-, Side- and Rear-view Cameras around the vehicle show the surroundings on the Control Display, for enhanced visibility. The Top-view Camera provides a bird’s-eye view of the road alongside the doors. These images, taken by cameras positioned in the exterior mirrors, help guide you when manoeuvering in tight spaces. Side-view Cameras in the front bumpers show traffi c approaching the front of the vehicle from the sides, such as when exiting a garage. The Rear-view Camera, located behind the BMW badge on the trunk lid, shows the area behind the vehicle. Working with Park Distance Control, interactive guidelines indicate if the vehicle can fi t in a parking space, and display parking trajectories and turn angles. BMW Head-up Display. The BMW Head-up Display allows you to always keep the traffi c situation in view in the new BMW X . Relevant information is projected onto a two-colour TFT display directly in the driver’s fi eld of vision. The BMW Head-up Display shows, for example, your speed and navigation instructions. Please note: Speed Limit Information display not available in Canada.

Lane Departure Warning. At speeds above around   km/h, the optional Lane Departure Warning system registers lane markings ahead, up to a distance of   metres. If the vehicle threatens to move out of the lane, the system warns the driver with a slight vibration of the steering wheel. If the driver has activated the indicator – meaning that the lane change is intentional – no warning is given. Enhanced mobile networking. The BMW Vision ConnectedDrive is a visionary Roadster whose amazing design goes far deeper than its dynamic, fl owing lines. Three levels in the interior each symbolize a facet of BMW ConnectedDrive – Convenience, Infotainment and Safety; accompanying functions and controls are highlighted with different coloured lights that illuminate information. An extraordinary synthesis of exterior and interior style and substance, the BMW Vision ConnectedDrive points the way to a mobile networking future.

High-beam assistant. The optional High-beam assistant recognizes light sources in the car’s environment and switches the high beam on and off, according to the traffi c situation. When the system is active, an image sensor at the back of the interior mirror monitors the traffi c and lighting conditions. Based on these sensor images, the assistant decides whether or not the high beam should be switched on. When it detects vehicles ahead, or fi nds that ambient light is suffi cient, the high beam is switched off again.
