Internet access from BMW ConnectedDrive brings the World Wide Web into your vehicle. The driver can access the websites of his choice from his BMW just as easily as he can from his home computer.

The high-resolution websites appear in the cockpit’s Control Display or, in the optional rear-entertainment Professional, in flat screens built into the backrest of the front seats (only for certain models). An extra function permits the screenshots to be enlarged by a scale factor of 1.5 or 2. 

Web addresses can be entered directly into the browser’s address field and also saved under ‘Favourites’. Symbols and letters can be entered in the same way they are in a navigation system. The intuitive iDrive Controller takes on the role of a computer mouse: moving the Controller in different directions moves the cursor on the display. Pressing the Controller is the same as a mouse click and is used to select links or menu options. Turning it left or right scrolls up or down a page. 

Data transfer is based on EDGE technology (Enhanced Data Rates for GSM Evolution), which is three to four times faster than the mobile radio standard GPRS. A special BMW server ensures that pictures and so-called applets with extremely high data volume are quickly transferred and optimally displayed.

Internet connectivity in the vehicle is a service provided by BMW ConnectedDrive. It is only possible with the Professional navigation system with integrated Bluetooth mobile phone preparation. For safety reasons, the control display only shows content when the vehicle is at a standstill. Internet access in the rear is available throughout the journey.
