Connected mobility in the BMW i3.

A fully sustainable system requires a fully comprehensive network: with an integrated SIM card as standard, the BMW i3 enjoys full connectivity with the outside world. This allows you to make use of BMW i ConnectedDrive services to safely reach your destination. To make sure you never run out of power, the mobility service ChargeNow is at your service with the world’s largest network of public charging stations. The BMW mobility service ParkNow shows you where there’s a vacant space – at the roadside or in a car park. When you need a car, you can easily find one close by with the car-sharing service DriveNow.

Simply open the dynamic range map in the optional navigation system for a clear overview of your current range. If the remaining battery charge is not sufficient, the system will suggest other ways of reaching your destination and show unoccupied charging stations on the navigation screen. One particularly useful feature is intermodal routing. This can help save precious time in heavy traffic by recommending alternative means of transport and guiding you to Park & Ride facilities.

BMW i Remote App


The age of electric mobility opens up opportunities that were previously unthinkable. With the BMW i Remote App you can keep an eye on your BMW i3 whenever you want via smartphone or smartwatch, checking the battery charge and the electric driving range. If your BMW i3 is connected to a charging station, you can track the charging processes remotely. This helps you time your departure to ensure that your BMW i3 is fully charged and preconditioned. And if you wish, the app will also rate the efficiency of your driving.

The Apple Watch now offers an additional means of accessing the functions of the BMW i Remote App. The smartwatch is a clever complement to the connected smartphone and offers you many relevant status details. Examples include the electrical range, the battery status or information on any doors and windows that are open as well as a large number of practical remote functions and alternative routes – and all of these located directly on your wrist.

Smart home


Manage your home even when you’re out on the road – with the Smart Home App from Deutsche Telekom. All Smart Home devices connected to the app can now be controlled via the display and operating system of your BMW. Regulate the heating, the lights or your alarm system comfortably from inside your vehicle. It’s also possible to programme certain situations, such as the “Coming Home” scenario. Thanks to the functions that were specially developed for use in the vehicle, the “Home” profile is activated automatically as soon as you start heading back home. All information is displayed clearly on the control display of the BMW Head Unit – so that your home is always in exactly the condition you want it to be.
