The app is powered by Microsoft Asure and is expected to assist with travel time and destinations as well as be integrated into the BMW ConnectedDrive program in select models.
The app will learn travel times between most traveled destinations and drivers can be notified if those regular trips will take longer than expected. You can also send a pre-formatted text message to family and friends regarding your arrival times.
Those frequent destinations will be stored in BMW Connected and added to the driver’s profile. From there, they can be pulled quickly for reference and used for the travel time function.
The new app is powered by Microsoft Azure, which is the foundation for BMW’s Open Mobility Cloud that “is an intelligent, continuously-learning platform built to meld context, environment, touchpoints and services in the right mix and at the right time to address customers’ individual mobility needs.”
