The update includes new services for navigation, connected parking, location-based automatic switching from PHEVs to electric drive, connected charging, digital car key, infotainment, and a new Intelligent Personal Assistant. All vehicles produced from July and equipped with the current BMW Operating System 7 will receive the update ex works. For the models already delivered, the update will take place over-the-air starting in September - but only if they are already equipped with OS7.
Already today, according to BMW, appropriately equipped vehicles from this manufacturer can digitally retrofit or extend certain functions. These include a high-beam assistant, the Active Cruise Control (ACC) driver assistance system with Stop & Go function and the BMW Driver Recorder. In the future, the manufacturer also intends to make greater use of this option as a sales channel in order to offer additional services after the vehicle has been delivered to the customer. BMW also intends to increasingly digitalise communication with the customer in the future: In-car communication will become increasingly important as a channel, i.e. the aim is to offer customers situation-specific, tailor-made services directly in the vehicle.
