BMW 5 Series: Real Time Traffic Information RTTI

General information

Depending on the equipment, RTTI is transmitted via services which can be booked in addition in some countries.

With RTTI, traffic obstructions are localized more comprehensively and precisely. Traffic conditions on roads other than the highways, for instance secondary roads and urban streets are also recorded and displayed for a wide area. Recommended detours can be calculated more accurately on the basis of this information. The risk of becoming caught in a further traffic obstruction on detour routes is reduced. If applicable, several detour recommendations or additional information may be offered.

In the event of special hazards, for instance objects on the road, a message is displayed.

Several hazard messages are also displayed in the instrument cluster as a Check Control message.

Certain BMW models equipped with navigation have the capability to display traffic information. If your system has this capability, the following additional terms and conditions apply: An End-User shall no longer have the right to use the traffic information in the event that the End- User is in material breach of the terms and conditions contained herein.

BMW or its third party providers hold the rights to the traffic data. You may not modify, copy, scan or use any other method to reproduce, duplicate, republish, transmit or distribute in any way any portion of traffic data.
