BMW Connected Car

“Our network connectivity essentially transforms the vehicle dashboard into a sophisticated smart device, and delivers a driving experience that goes far beyond the conventional.”

Vodafone New Zealand and BMW are partnering to provide wireless connectivity to new 2015 BMW vehicles via global SIM and machine-to-machine (M2M) platform.

The rapid rise of M2M connectivity in vehicles in the last year can be explained by a number of key factors including demand in the consumer market for 4G LTE connection in the car, demand for vehicle tracking and safety applications and the increase in usage-based insurance schemes for vehicles.

Build to last up to 10 years and embedded in the vehicle during manufacturing, the SIM allows BMW to roll out a host of new services on its ConnectedDrive platform including automatic emergency call, remote locking and unlocking using the smartphone app, 24/7 concierge service and TeleService which provides direct communication to the auto-maker for vehicle maintenance and diagnosis purposes.
