With the Navigation System Professional, a Bluetooth connection and BMW ConnectedDrive Services, picking up the phone is no longer necessary. All text can now be entered vocally. The dictation function allows spoken messages to be converted into text, which can then be sent as emails or text messages. The dictation function can also be used to compose Twitter posts in BMW Apps. The dictation function is available free of charge for the first 60 days. A fee-based contract with Nuance® is then required for ongoing use in the car.
