Learn in this video, that the new BMW Maps navigation system in BMWs with OperatingSystem 8 offers more personalized and intelligent destination input and route guidance features. Log in with your BMW ID to unlock all BMW Maps features and services. In the “Navigation” App, select “Destination Input” to search for an address, a point of interest, a contact or coordinates. Upon entering the first letters, BMW Maps suggests likely destinations. Select “Settings” – “Configure Services” and activate “Online destinations” to include web- destinations into your search. Under “Recent Destinations” you can select destinations that you have recently entered with your BMW ID account. Go to “destinations” to save places you frequently drive to as “Home address”, “Work address” or as individual “Favourites” for quicker selection in the future. In Map view you can choose between three different modes. Press the toggle button below the map to switch between the map modes “Reduced”, “Expanded” and “Adaptive”. The latter automatically shows map items fitting to your specific driving situation – like resting or charging opportunities. You can also select the map mode directly under “Content and zoom” in the side tool bar. When you drive with an active route guidance, go to “Settings” to select and activate “Augmented View”: See how additional guidance graphics indicate your next maneuver over a real time image of the road ahead of you. Familiar convenience: BMW Maps in BMW OperatingSystem 8 offers “Learning Navigation” also when your are not driving with an active route guidance. Select “Settings” – “Configure Services” and activate “Learning navigation”. This allows the navigation system to learn your preferences, like destinations, routes and departures. Based on these insights BMW Maps can inform you via push notification in the BMW App – for example about current traffic jams or a faster route to your usual commuting destination.
