Numerous innovative technologies support you in various ways and guarantee the highest level of comfort and safety. So you can focus on one of the important things in life – carefree driving pleasure.

DRIVING ASSISTANT.

The Driving Assistant feature combines the camera-based lane deviation warning and approach control and person warning systems with light city braking function and also includes an attentiveness assistant. The lane deviation warning detects lane markings and alerts the driver to an unintentional lane change at speeds above approx. 70 km/h by means of vibrations in the steering wheel. The warning is not activated if the lane change is deliberate, that is, when the turn indicator has been activated. Whereas the approach control warning with light city braking function detects vehicles, the person warning reacts to pedestrians. If a vehicle ahead brakes heavily, the BMW responds immediately when the approach control warning is activated. The system operates in steps. A warning symbol is first displayed, then the symbol begins blinking and an acoustic warning is emitted, and finally the brakes are lightly applied (when travelling at speeds under 60 km/h). The person warning operates at speeds between 10 and 60 km/h and emits a single-level warning in the event of acute danger. If the system warns of a potential collision, the brakes are simultaneously preconditioned for a faster response. In the event of an emergency, the system applies the brakes. This function can be limited by darkness and fog. An attentiveness assistant monitors the driver's steering response for signs of tiredness and displays a message in the control display suggesting the driver take a break in the event of irregular driving behaviour.

NAVIGATION SYSTEM PROFESSIONAL.

The Navigation system Professional features a sleek design and a superior range of services : It delivers a simple and easy-to-use navigation system that is seamlessly integrated into the BMW, including the iDrive operating concept and iDrive Touch Controller .
The system comprises the hands-free facility with USB interface and voice control, radio BMW Professional with DVD drive, as well as 20 GB of memory for audio files. It also facilitates the use of Real Time Traffic Information (RTTI). The built-in 8.8" LCD colour display with split screen function (main and supplementary screen) is designed for optimal readability and clarity.

  • iDrive Touch Controller

    The latest generation of the navigation system Professional automatically updates its navigation maps on a regular basis in conjunction with BMW ConnectedDrive . As soon as updated material for the selected region becomes available, the update is transmitted wirelessly via the internet using the vehicle's built-in SIM card – up to four times per year.
    This does not involve any licensing fees or transmission costs for the user – the navigation system is always equipped with the latest maps without the user having to register or log-in to a portal. Manual updates are only necessary for map material for regions which were booked additionally. These updates can either be carried out at the BMW Service partner or conveniently purchased online in the BMW ConnectedDrive Shop and transferred to the navigation system per USB stick.

PARKING ASSISTANT.

The Parking assistant makes parking parallel and perpendicular to the road easier. Whether activated or not, the system measures potential spaces – even tight parallel parking spaces – while driving past at a low speed (below 35 km/h) and at a maximum distance of 1.5 m from the row of parked cars.
When a large enough gap has been found, the driver simply turns on the indicator and the Parking assistant takes over the steering, while the driver continues to operate the accelerator, gears and brakes. The system also shows supplementary instructions in the Control Display and additional acoustic signals.
As the car slowly approaches an obstacle, the Parking assistant is automatically activated via the function "Auto PDC" (Automatic Park Distance Control). The system's enhanced functionality includes supporting the driver when parking in spaces that are perpendicular to the road. The PDC also emits a warning signal if the car becomes too close to obstacles on either side. So the driver can stay relaxed and enjoy greater safety while parking.

REAR VIEW CAMERA.

REAR VIEW CAMERA.

The rear view camera enables the driver to view the area behind the car in the Control Display while manoeuvring and parking. The rear view camera enhances visibility when reversing at speeds below 15 km/h, for example when parking.
The guide lines and coloured obstacle markings that appear in the Control Display show the driver if the selected parking spot is big enough to accommodate the car – which makes parking easier. When the steering wheel is at full lock, the system displays red turning circle lines and green guide lines that adapt to the steering wheel movements.
The rear view camera is automatically deactivated after ten metres or when the speed exceeds 15 km/h. In conjunction with the trailer tow hitch, the rear view camera comes with a handy zoom function.
