BMW 5 Series: Introduction, Vehicle conditions


The terminal control in the G30 is identical to the terminal control of the G12. In the G30, the vehicle is always in the right condition from the point of view of the customer. The terminals are controlled via a customer-oriented condition management. The terminal control is dependent on the driving conditions.

Vehicle conditions

The G30 vehicle may be in the following conditions:

  • PARKING (asleep)
  • RESIDING (awake)
  • DRIVING (ready)

The different vehicle functions are possible depending on the relevant conditions.

PARKING (asleep)

  • Customer not in the vehicle.
  • Vehicle secured or not used for a certain time.
  • Vehicle functions cannot be operated.

RESIDING (awake)

  • Customer in the vehicle.
  • No driving readiness.
  • Functions that are relevant when the vehicle is stationary can be operated.

DRIVING (ready)

  • Customer in the vehicle.
  • Driving readiness established.
  • All functions are available.

The driving conditions are changed by condition management, taking into account the customer behavior. Additional information is also evaluated that may help to determine the vehicle condition, e.g.:

  • Door opening
  • Door closing
  • Operations in the vehicle

The following diagram shows the changes between the vehicle conditions.

Automatic switch-off

Switch off after door opening.

In the menu "Doors/Keys", an immediate change from the vehicle condition RESIDING to the vehicle condition PARKING can be activated.

If this option is activated, then the system will immediately change to the vehicle condition PARKING when the driver's door is opened. The omission of the after-running period in the vehicle condition RESIDING saves energy.
