HOW-TO BMW?

BMW has released a series of informative and demonstrative videos to help drivers of new BMW vehicles get comfortable and familiar with the various new features that may be equipped with their BMWs.

The videos are concise and easy to understand.
This should be helpful to new owners who share FAQs about their BMWs.

Below is the video series organized by category.


PERSONALIZATION

Getting Started
Quote:
The new BMW Operating System 7 offers you the possibility to save, synchronize and restore your personal settings if you create a driver profile. With synchronization of your ConnectedDrive account, your settings are saved in the cloud and not only saved on your vehicle key. You can now easily synchronize your settings to every BMW that uses the Operating System 7.


ConnectedDrive Account
Quote:
You can create more than one driver profile per car. Each profile is then connected to a ConnectedDrive account. If you do not have a ConnectedDrive account yet, you can make one by using the QR-code in the Control Display. When you activate your own ConnectedDrive Account, your settings will be restored even when you are driving in a rental car.




OPERATING SYSTEM 7

The fully digital BMW Operating System 7 allows you to personalize and change content in the Control Display to create your own menu. This film shows you step by step how to change or add pages and widgets according to your taste.


Instrument Cluster - Operating System 7

With the Operating System 7, BMW offers a digital instrument cluster, which combines all necessary information on one screen. The instrument cluster is divided into three different areas for a clear overview. On the left you can see all driving relevant information, in the center area there is the navigation screen as well as control messages and on the right you can see the rev counter and widgets.


Voice Control - Operating System 7

Voice Control by BMW is the perfect way to control your car while driving. With the activation of voice control by pushing the button on your steering wheel or saying the activation word, you can easily operate several functions with the use of your voice.

AUTO START STOP

Auto Start Stop Function

The Auto Start Stop Function helps you to save fuel and reduces unnecessary emissions in a very simple way. The Auto Start Stop Function automatically shuts off the engine whenever possible. It then automatically turns the engine on again, when it is possible to move on.
