DELEGATE TO RELIABLE HELPERS.

BMW ConnectedDrive Driver Assistance systems in the BMW X3.

Regardless of what you’re planning, the BMW X3 makes it easy for you. This is because the BMW X3 has innovative technologies on board that support you in a variety of ways during the journey and guarantee the highest level of comfort and safety. So that you can enjoy the most important thing: unadulterated driving pleasure.

DRIVING ASSISTANT.

The Driving Assistant feature combines the camera-based Lane Departure Warning and approach control and person warning with light city braking function.

The Lane Departure Warning detects lane markings and alerts the driver to an unintentional lane change at speeds above approx. 70 km/h by means of vibrations in the steering wheel. The warning is not activated if the lane change is deliberate, that is, when the turn indicator has been activated.

Whereas the approach control warning with light city braking function detects vehicles, the person warning with light city braking function reacts to pedestrians. When there is a risk of collision, the approach control warning triggers a two-stage warning – a symbol in the instrument cluster lights up, followed by an acoustic alarm. The person warning operates at speeds between 10 and 60 km/h and emits a single-level warning in the event of acute danger. If the system warns of a potential collision, the brakes are simultaneously preconditioned for a faster response. In the event of an emergency, the system applies the brakes. This function can be limited by darkness and fog.

  • Driving Assistant Plus

    The Driving Assistant Plus feature (only available with Steptronic transmission) includes not only approach control warning and Lane Departure Warning, but also Active Cruise Control with Stop&Go function. This provides assistance when driving on motorways in both critical and stable traffic situations.

    This option is only available in conjunction with the Navigation system Business or Professional.

    The approach control warning responds in stages. Depending on whether a vehicle ahead brakes suddenly or a stationary object is detected, the reaction ranges from a visual signal to active braking and even a complete standstill. Should the car begin to change lanes unintentionally, the Lane Departure Warning quickly provides a warning by means of vibrations in the steering wheel.

    The Active Cruise Control maintains a constant selected speed between 30 km/h and 210 km/h or automatically adjusts to conform with the cars driving in front if the distance control is activated. The Stop&Go function even controls speed down to a standstill, accelerating again easily when the gas pedal is pressed, for example in dense moving traffic.

NAVIGATION SYSTEM PROFESSIONAL.

The Navigation System Professional features a sleek design and a superior range of services: It delivers a simple and easy-to-use navigation system that is seamlessly integrated into the BMW, with iDrive operating concept and iDrive Touch Controller included.

The system comprises the hands-free kit with USB interface and voice control and the Radio BMW Professional with DVD drive, as well as 20 GB memory for audio files. The built-in 8.8″ LCD colour display with split screen function (main and supplementary screen) is designed for optimal readability and overview.

  • iDrive Touch Controller

    It is operated intuitively via the iDrive Touch Controller, whose touch-sensitive surface allows the driver to easily enter destination addresses for the navigation system using their handwriting. Alternatively, the system can also be operated via direct menu control buttons, the eight functional bookmarks or voice control. Thanks to the three-dimensional map display that makes use of satellite images as a map background – with photo-realistic depictions of selected sights – navigation becomes an exciting visual experience.

INTELLIGENT VOICE ASSISTANT.

Intelligent Voice Assistant with offboard speech processing offers speech support at the highest level It understands natural speech, as opposed to only recognising limited commands. The Voice Assistant not only includes a large scope of individual and situational variations. It also understands linguistic varieties, dialects and jargon. This enables a substantially greater range of possibilities when dictating text messages or emails. The greatly expanded range of functions is possible thanks to the Connected- Drive server-based offboard voice recognition, which forms the basis for the Intelligent Voice Assistant. This cloud function enables non-specific searches to be conducted quickly and simply on the internet using everyday language, aiding the navigation system. It is possible to search for restaurants in the area by asking in natural language, for example. In addition, the move to the cloud allows more frequent update cycles, guaranteeing that all future innovations are available as soon as possible, whether regarding new software or improvements to computer linguistics.

PARK DISTANCE CONTROL (PDC)

Park Distance Control (PDC) at the front and rear gives optical and acoustic signals so that you can park safely and comfortably.

PARKING ASSISTANT.

The Parking assistant makes parking parallel to the road easier. Whether activated or not, the system measures potential spaces while driving past at a low speed (below 35 km/h) and at a maximum distance of 1.5 m from the row of parked cars.

When a large enough gap has been found, the driver simply turns on the indicator and the Parking assistant takes over the steering, while the driver continues to operate the accelerator, gears and brakes. The system also gives instructions in the Control Display and additional acoustic signals. This way the driver can stay relaxed and enjoy greater safety while parking.

BMW SELECTIVE BEAM.

With BMW Selective Beam night driving is safer and more comfortable. It provides excellent visibility in the dark without dazzling other drivers.
BMW Selective Beam detects other road-users and selectively excludes them from the high-beam headlight distribution. Beam ranges of over 400 m ensure early detection of risks and improved directional tracking.
