  • BMW ConnectedDrive app: Sync your contacts and calendar, read your emails and check your texts directly through the infotainment system. The BMW Remote app also allows remote access to lock or unlock your car doors.
  • Access to apps: Take advantage of Yelp, Pandora, Stitcher, Twitter, and more, right from your dashboard. ConnectedDrive even reads Facebook feeds out loud, so you don’t need to peek at your phone.
