BMW ConnectedDrive is the intelligent linking of vehicle, driver and outside world. It makes sure you’re always connected. The BMW 1 Series 3-door has BMW ConnectedDrive as standard, so depending on the car's specification you'll experience the benefit of 4G capability for navigation, active cruise control, free automatic map updates, Park Assist (for both parallel and bay parking), Drive Assist, Bluetooth and audio streaming.
As well as these services, BMW Apps are also available as standard. BMW leads the way in in-car apps, connecting you to a greater selection of music, news, information and social networks.
Real Time Traffic Information
Included as standard, Real Time Traffic Information provides precise information on the current traffic situation. Using data from movement profiles from the cellular network, and GPS data from vehicle fleets, smartphone apps and police reports, it knows the fastest route and guides you along it. It provides updates on the traffic situation in real time, and to the nearest 100m.
It also calculates any likely delays and recommends detours, and will keep you informed at all times so you can avoid tailbacks and road closures. Where ever your journey takes you – motorways, major roads, country roads or inner-city routes – Real Time Traffic Information gets you there faster.
