CONNECTED UP TO FREEDOM.

BMW ConnectedDrive Services & Apps in the BMW M2 Coupé.

The BMW M2 Coupé offers unlimited possibilities – and not only when it comes to driving dynamics. With Services & Apps, you can connect up your vehicle: Use GoPro and the BMW laptimer app to record your driving performance, and increase day-to-day practicality with Real Time Traffic Information or Remote Services.

 

BMW M LAPTIMER APP.

With the BMW M laptimer app, driving data from the racetrack can be accurately recorded, bend by bend, and then analysed with the aim of improving driving performance. The app collects precise data from the BMW M2 Coupé sensors and shows selected values in the Control Display. The system is operated via the iDrive Controller.

 

While it is recording, the BMW M laptimer app shows the GPS position, speed, forward acceleration, lateral acceleration (G-force), lap times and acceleration up to a certain speed (e.g. from 0 to 100 km/h). Depending on the vehicle equipment and model year, factors measured may also include the accelerator position, steering angle, deceleration, rpms and gear, as well as fuel consumption. The recorded data can be posted as a snapshot to social networks, or saved and sent via email.

GOPRO APP.

The free GoPro app allows a GoPro video camera, attached either inside or outside the vehicle, to be operated via the Control Display in the BMW M2 Coupé. This means that images and video recordings can be conveniently managed via the iDrive Controller. Furthermore, it's also possible to switch the camera on/off per WiFi, configure it and check its charge level.

 

CONNECTED DRIVE SERVICES.

The equipment option ConnectedDrive Services forms the basis for BMW ConnectedDrive functions, which provide the driver with a wide range of information, entertainment and service features while on the road.

 

These include BMW Online, which provides access to current, location-based information such as weather and news, an online search powered by GoogleTM as well as office functions. In the applications menu, it is also possible to assemble an individualised array of services such as parking information, travel and hotel guides, as well as the news and weather information.

 

This also includes convenient, secure and unlimited access to selected smartphone apps. ConnectedDrive Services also provides access to the BMW. The equipment option ConnectedDrive Services offers all this and more, making every trip in a BMW a real experience.

REAL TIME TRAFFIC INFORMATION.

Real Time Traffic Information (RTTI) provides the most up-to-date traffic information at all times. Precise details about the location and duration of delays are transmitted in order to keep the driver informed, practically in real time, about the current traffic situation on motorways, country roads and on many routes within the city. Intelligent alternative route suggestions help the driver reach their destination as quickly and efficiently as possible. The data are drawn from such sources as anonymous movement profiles from the GPS data of vehicle fleets, smartphone apps and police reports, and also takes into account established traffic patterns such as peak commute times.

 

The traffic information is clearly presented, with the roads depicted in green, yellow, orange and red.
