With the BMW i Remote App you can control your BMW i from afar and retrieve the current status of your vehicle. The app clearly shows you information such as the location of the vehicle, the range, the battery level and service messages or informs you about unlocked doors and lights that have been left on. If your BMW i is connected to the charging station, the charging process can be initiated remotely using the weekly timer and the air conditioning activated by remote control before setting off on a trip. This allows both the battery and interior to be prepared for the trip by being set to the optimum temperature. The dynamic range map is also integrated in the BMW i Remote App. The map function shows you points of interest together with vacant and occupied charging stations and sends them directly to your vehicle. You can also see charging stations offered through the 360° ELECTRIC product ChargeNow. In addition, the app gives helpful tips on how to drive the car more efficiently and how the range can be extended. The efficiency value of each journey can be anonymously shared with others and compared, if needed.
