In preparation for launch of its futuristic “i” models, BMW released a preview of a bespoke smartphone app for the cars with a wide range of capabilities.
This app is like a remote control panel for the vehicle, by which not only you can monitor the car’s vitals such as the range and its level of charge, you can also control most of its features.
You can, for instance, schedule your travel plans with it. But it’s an ultra-modern solution, so you can also for example set the air con to come on at a specific time before you get into the car, so it will be warm and cozy, or nice and cool, when you get there.
Another great feature worth mentioning is the GPS and routing system. It looks like something out of a spy movie, and besides the normal features it also lists the charging stations around you and calculates the ETA.
These are, of course, some of the features of BMW i app. By the time it’s ready you’ll probably be able to talk to your car, or have it do your laundry!
