BMW Of Mobile Outlines Apple CarPlay Features

January 23rd, 2017 by

At BMW of Mobile, you’re looking for it all in our lineup of BMW vehicles, and you’re getting it too. With standout selection and technology onboard, you’re truly getting a luxury experience. Among the features that you can find on BMW vehicles is Apple CarPlay, which allows for seamless connectivity between you and your phone on the go.

  • To utilize Apple CarPlay on your BMW, you need to have the latest iOS version and an active data plan, as CarPlay uses the data plan of the iPhone that is connected. You cannot connect your iPhone to the vehicle’s WiFi hotspot and use CarPlay at the same time
  • Make sure you have the Apple CarPlay app on your phone, and you will be able to pair it up with the iDrive system easily
  • Once you’ve paired the device, you’ll notice that the interface and menu is similar to what you’d see on any other iOS device so it’s going to be easy for you to pick up on quickly
  • With Apple CarPlay, you’re able to access calls, texts, navigation, and compatible apps, and do so by pressing the buttons or by using Siri by pressing the voice command button on the iDrive, or on your steering wheel
  • Apple CarPlay on BMW models can also predict your travel plans and provide you with direction based on events in your phone’s calendar, contacts, and frequent destinations as well, for added convenience

You can learn more when you stop in to take a closer look at all the vehicles we have in our showroom. We’d be happy to answer any questions and provide more details today.
