Autos Apr 08, 2016 Uxbridge Times Journal

BMW Connected, a new personal mobility companion, debuted at Microsoft Build 2016, Microsoft Corp’s developer conference.

The first version called BMW Connected North America, powered by Microsoft Azure, is now available at the Apple App Store to BMW ConnectedDrive customers in the US for iOS devices.

BMW Connected accompanies you throughout the day and perfectly integrates into BMW vehicles, providing solutions in the right place at just the right time.

This marks the inception of BMW’s vision of an intelligent, highly personalized world of digital services that integrate the vehicle seamlessly into the life of the consumer.

Putting consumers and their personal needs at the heart of this vision, services will be available anytime, anywhere – in or outside of the vehicle.

The BMW Group’s approach to mobility with this digital companion, powered by the Open Mobility Cloud is at the forefront of the automotive industry.

Never leave late again.

Reaching your destination easily, comfortably and punctually constitutes a basic need of everyday mobility. Traffic conditions change quickly so access to real-time information is important. BMW Connected provides estimated travel times in and outside the vehicle for your routine or planned destinations. 

Based on traffic conditions, you will be notified when it’s time to leave, on your iPhone or Apple Watch.

As BMW Connected learns your typical travel times between frequent destinations, notifications are provided when the trip will take longer than usual.

Keep family and friends informed of your likely arrival time from your smartphone or inside the vehicle by sending a pre-formatted text message auto-populated with your arrival time.
