The Connected Drive

BMW In Car Technology Offers Ultimate Convenience

BMW wants to make your life easier.  With a wealth of touch screen and audio technology, BMW's iDrive technology ensures drivers can take care of their business as they drive in a safe, controlled manner.

First, the text-to-speech function helps drivers stay up to date while driving safely. Calendar entries, notes, tasks, contacts and even news headlines, emails and text messages can be read out loud to you through the text-to-speech function in English, French or Spanish.  Staying informed as you drive has never been easier.

For the business, on-the-go types, BMW has mobile solutions as well.  The BMW iDrive display becomes your office with the seamless integration of most smartphones. With Mobile Office, your calendar and tasks are displayed and automatically updated when you wirelessly connect your smartphone to your vehicle via Bluetooth technology.

Need to get in touch with BMW for some customer service?  You can do that too.  With just the touch of a button on your iDrive or radio display, you can quickly and easily connect to our helpful BMW Customer Relations staff.

Aside from live weather reports, BMW's iDrive system offers multiple safety features.  With Automatic Collission Notification, your vehicle's location and crash information are automatically transmitted to a response specialist who will request dispatch of appropriate emergency services on your behalf. 

Plus BMW has an Emergency Request SOS button.  If you have an emergency—whether it’s big or small—push the SOS button on your overhead console to transmit your location and vehicle information. A response specialist will speak with you to quickly determine what we can do to help.

Those are just some of the amazing features you'll find on BMWs.  For an up close view, visit BMW of Rochester online or stop by and take a look.
