My BMW introduces exclusive functionality for Plug-in Hybrid and all-electric models with a range of charging and electric mobility functions.
Monitoring your electric charge could not be easier with Charging Push Notifications. You can stay up-to-date with the progress of your vehicle's charge via your smartphone notifications so you know exactly when it has completed or if any issues occur. My BMW also logs your charging history based on the time it took to charge, the charging point location and the additional miles that the charge provided.
With the Programmable Charging functionality you are able to set the most convenient time for your car to charge via the app, whether that is morning or night.
Whilst travelling to your destination the integrated map displays a visual range circle that demonstrates the remaining electric miles before you need to re-charge. If you require access to a public charging facility, My BMW sends you suggestions for the most convenient and available charging stations on your route.
Ahead of each journey you can use the app to pre-condition the cabin of your plug-in hybrid or electric BMW to the temperature previously set in the vehicle, and soon have the flexibility of even adjusting the desired temperature and timing of the pre-conditioning to ensure you are ready to start every journey in comfort.
Simply download the My BMW app from your compatible Smartphone App Store. We hope you found the information in this Guide useful. For further information about the My BMW app please contact your preferred Marshall BMW Centre.
