The All-New Connected Drive Store
Today, BMW announced plans to allow customers in the U.S. to use an all-new Connected Drive Store while inside their BMW vehicle to purchase select Connected Drive services and apps.
At launch, these services include concierge, which provides practical information and advice during your trip to make it more comfortable. For example, a live representative can help you locate a restaurant or hotel and then the address can be sent directly to your BMW’s navigation system. Emergency calling is also included and can place a phone call on your behalf if there is no access to a cell phone.
Additional options available for subscription at the time of the launch are Navigation Map updates as well as Internet service, which drivers can access safely and conveniently by iDrive Controller and the integrated high-resolution Control Display.
This amazing new feature can be expected to launch Spring of 2015 and will be on display at the Las Vegas Convention Center during the Consumer Electronics Show from January 6-9th.
