With its BMW ConnectedDrive solutions tailored specially to electric vehicles, the BMW i3 / i8 is the first series-produced vehicle to be fully networked. Its networked BMW i Navigation system with Range Assistant and charging station indicator takes you to your destination along the most efficient route.
The BMW i Remote App is like an extension of your BMW i3 / i8 on your smartphone. With BMW TeleService specially developed for BMW i, your BMW i dealer will always know when you need a service.
The BMW i Remote App has extended features that enable drivers to make the best and most efficient use of their BMW i3 / i8 even when away from the vehicle.
Or maybe you simply want to know how efficient your own driving style is.
The BMW i Remote App can only be used in conjunction with a BMW i3 / i8 having an active BMW Assist™ contract, as part of BMW ConnectedDrive Services.
The following functions are supported by the BMW i Remote App (they may vary from market to market):
• Information about your battery’s charging status and vehicle range (electric and Range Extender range).
• Dynamic Range Map, which enables you to check whether a destination is within range.
• Display of driver and vehicle position on your smartphone.
• Set departure times, thereby optimizing battery usage.
• Display of various charging statuses.
• Utilize Remote Services (lock doors, preactivate the air-conditioning, and other remote functions).
• Display vehicle information (total miles, vehicle condition, servicing requirements).
• Navigate easily from your location back to your vehicle (Vehicle Finder) and transfer important destinations to the vehicle.
• Calculate the efficiency of your own driving style using your most recent route results, a CO2 counter, and other driving statistics. Compare these figures within the Community as well.
• Optimize your driving style using integrated tutorials.
The BMW i Remote App is available free of charge. It can be used on the basis of the general contract and usage conditions that apply to BMW ConnectedDrive Services.
