BMW communication and navigation.
BMW offers a comprehensive range of telematics and navigation solutions which are conveniently operated using the BMW navigation system with split-screen function. And with the digital road maps you will find your destination easily and most comfortably. Discover the new dimension to mobility.
With the BMW Bluetooth interface.
Connecting a mobile phone to your vehicle via Bluetooth is the safest and most comfortable way to speak on the phone while on the road. This is why BMW was the first automobile manufacturer to introduce the Bluetooth communication standard for mobile phone integration as early as December 2002. The wireless connection enables drivers to operate their mobile phones via the multifunctional steering wheel, the iDrive Controller or voice control. The mobile phone's telephone book is synchronised with the on-board computer and can be accessed via the radio display or the on-board monitor.
Always up-to-date - The Requirements.
The mobile phone preparation with Bluetooth interface is available for all BMW models. As the implementation of Bluetooth standards differs depending on the mobile phone and software version, new devices and software offers are continually being tested for compatibility. An optional snap-in adapter is also required to operate the mobile phone preparation with Bluetooth interface to guarantee a successful external antennae connection and to ensure that the mobile phone is connected properly and can be charged as normal.
Split-screen software for the BMW navigation system.
The split-screen function adds even more effectiveness to the information provided by digital road maps. Viewing the map and arrow display simultaneously - or other information - is easy with a split screen. Travelling is more pleasurable now that retrieving information on alternative routes is so effortlessly accessed. Ask your BMW service partner for more information on equipping your vehicle with this convenient, easy-to-use feature.
Get in and play on - the USB audio interface lets you connect MP3 players, Apple iPods, USB sticks and mobile phones seamlessly with the BMW audio system. Tracks are played in HiFi quality via the loudspeakers and your music choice can be controlled using either buttons on the steering wheels, iDrive, voice control or the radio buttons.
The USB audio interface.
How do you navigate through a library of 10,000 songs? Preferably on the road using the vehicle's control functions. Almost all common MP3 players, Apple iPods and USB sticks can be integrated effortlessly with the audio system. The title of the track being played is displayed either on the control or radio display. MP3 players and Apple iPhones can be operated directly from the central console. All common formats are supported (MP3, AAC, WAV and WMA) as well as M3U-format playlists. To integrate an Apple iPod or Apple iPhone, the BMW cable adapter for Apple iPod/iPhone equipment option is required.
