TFT-Display & BMW Motorrad Connected App

1 March 2018

The optional accessory BMW Motorrad Connectivity provides motorcyclists with an innovative solution for daily navigation, using multimedia and riding-related information with the clearest layout and intuitive operations: connecting the motorcycle, smartphone and helmet via Bluetooth results in exciting new possibilities.

The multi-controller ensures that the functions are easy to operate at all times. The traditional electronic instrument cluster gives way to a large, clear TFT-Display, which gives the rider constant access to navigation, phone calls, media and additional vehicle information as well as information that was previously displayed, such as speed and revs. On top of this, there are additional functions available with the free BMW Motorrad Connected App. Connectivity gives motorcyclists the opportunity to focus on what really matters and that is to Make Life a Ride.



Smartphone-based Navigation Leading the Way.

Using the Connectivity optional accessory in conjunction with the BMW Motorrad Connected App makes every day navigation even easier - using the connection between your smartphone and vehicle, you are directed clearly and reliably to your destination by the turn-by-turn arrows shown on the TFT-Display. Even in urban settings, the new arrow display is intuitive and expedient. When there is no mobile network, offline maps can also be used for navigation. For challenging tours, you can also use the tried-and-tested BMW Motorrad Navigator, which of course is compatible with the TFT-Display.

Making Phone Calls is Easy, Even While Riding.

The combination of a helmet with BMW Motorrad communications system and the Connectivity optional accessory allows you to make phone calls during your journey. The rider has full access to his smartphone's contact list using the TFT-Display and can select and call contacts via the multi-controller. Incoming calls are also shown on the display and can be accepted or declined with a simple hand movement. Riding-related information such as speed and gear are visible on the clear display at all times thanks to the unique BMW Motorrad visual display concept.

“Connectivity gives motorcyclists the opportunity to focus on what really matters: the streets are waiting to be discovered”

Making Life a Ride with the Right Soundtrack.

You can easily play the music saved on your smartphone via the TFT-Display using the Connectivity optional accessory. Having your helmet connected to the BMW Motorrad communications system ensures you get the perfect tone. If you don't like a particular track, you have direct access to the skip forward/skip back functions.  With the BMW Motorrad communications system, you can also easily adjust the volume - and also the mute function- via the multi-controller. So that every rider has control of their soundtrack en route.
