BMW 5 Series: Schedule trips

Destinations can be scheduled via the BMW Connected app. Two options are available for this:

Schedule trips in the BMW Connected app

Trips can be scheduled in the BMW Connected app. An arrival time can be specified for the destinations. The BMW Connected app calculates the optimum departure time from current traffic data; you will receive a notification message 10 minutes before this time.

The current traffic volume for the scheduled destination is displayed in the BMW Connected app by color:

  • Green: no traffic on the scheduled route

Transferring the destination to the vehicle

A destination planned on the smartphone can be sent to the vehicle's navigation system. Two options are available for this:

  • Bluetooth
  • BMW Connected Send to Car

The destination can be sent to the navigation system if the smartphone is coupled via Bluetooth in the vehicle.

The destination can also be sent to the vehicle via ConnectedDrive online. The route guidance will then be suggested in the vehicle where it can be accepted. In this example we illustrate this on the user interface of a G12.
