Posted on August 13, 2021
Discover the advantages of the My BMW App and experience a whole new level of connectedness and distinctive driving pleasure whether you’re at the wheel or away from your car. From innovative remote functions to convenient access to information, discovering the next corner can’t be any smoother than this! Let’s take a look at some of the new highlights.
GREETINGS FROM HOME. A SIMPLE, YET INFORMATIVE OVERVIEW.
Once you’ve downloaded the My BMW App through the App Store or Google Play Store, and connected your BMW to the My BMW App, you’ll be pleasantly greeted on the home screen with an image of your vehicle and current fuel level (or range if you’re electric). You’ll be able to access various remote functions with a quick tap, and dive into the specifics of your vehicle status including: whether your bimmer is locked, if windows are opened, and maintenance reminders and information.
LOCK AND UNLOCK WITH JUST A CLICK.
We’re sure you won’t miss having to walk back to your car to check whether you’ve locked the vehicle, as you’ll now be able to check this remotely and lock things up if you haven’t. You can also remotely unlock your car should a passenger need to go back to retrieve anything from the car.
There are many bimmer fans in this world and finding your BMW in the midst of rows and rows of beauty in the parking lot might be a little difficult sometimes. Thankfully you can remotely flash your BMW’s headlights to locate your vehicle. You will also have access to the details of your car’s last location on a built-in map handy.
PREPARATION AT ITS FINEST: VENTILATION & CLIMATIZATION.
You’ll now be able to have your car ventilated before your arrival. This can be done remotely with an option to pre-schedule the ventilation time too.
Owners of a plug-in hybrid or electric BMW will also be able to pre-condition the cabin to heat or cool for a comfortable drive.
SEAMLESS TRIP PLANNING.
Planning trips with your My BMW App is extremely convenient because you can search up points of interest, plan ahead and send destinations straight to your BMW. This will allow you to easily review routes, traffic, and locate possible parking options at your final destination. Just click send, and the information will be ready before you hit the pedal! You also have the option to transfer destinations from your map apps to your My BMW App.
KNOWING EXACTLY WHAT YOUR BMW NEEDS.
Having instant access to service information and a smart reminder to tell you when your service is due is pretty sweet. You’ll then be able to search and schedule service quickly and conveniently with just a few easy clicks, especially if you’ve already preset your preferred local BMW retailer location (Auto West BMW).
REMOTE VIEWS ANYTIME, ANYWHERE.
With the Parking Assist Plus Option, you can now check-in remotely and enjoy a 360 degrees surrounding view of your vehicle using the advanced Remote 3D view.
MADE FOR THE ELECTRIFIED RIDE.
Stay on top of everything charging-related with the My BMW App. From an integrated map with a visual range circle showing the estimated electrical range remaining and the real-time progress of your current charging session, to finding a charging station on your route, the My BMW App has got you covered. You’ll also be able to preset the time that you want the charging session to begin.
