BMW HEAD-UP DISPLAY.
The full-colour BMW Head-Up Display projects all information relevant to the journey directly into the driver's field of vision, allowing them to fully concentrate on driving. The display includes data such as the current speed and – depending on the equipment – navigation tips, Speed Limit Info incl. no-overtaking indicator, telephone and entertainment lists, along with information and warnings from the various driver assistance systems. The icons projected onto the windscreen are displayed in a particularly high resolution and in full colour. The image's projection appears as if it were approx. 2.3 m in front of the vehicle. This, in combination with optimal positioning, allows the information to be read quickly, conveniently and with minimal distraction. The brightness of the projection automatically adjusts to suit the external light conditions, with different displays for day and night, and the height of the display can also be adjusted. Furthermore, the driver can also select which information to display in addition to the current speed and warnings from the driver assistance systems.
The fully automatic Park Assistant represents the latest generation of parking comfort in a BMW. In this generation, the system selects the forward or reverse gear, takes control of steering and automatically accelerates or brakes as necessary. Prior to the parking manoeuvre, the driver merely has to turn on the indicator and then keep the PDC button pressed during the entire parking procedure, along with monitoring the surrounding area with the help of the automatically activated Rear View camera. Once the manoeuvre has been completed, the system selects the P driving position. When travelling at speeds of up to 35 km/h and with a maximum distance of 1.5 m from the row of parked cars, the ultrasound sensors in the BMW use the Control Display to show potential gaps where it would be possible to parallel park in a roadside space.
BMW NIGHT VISION WITH DYNAMIC LIGHT SPOT.
BMW Night Vision with Dynamic Light Spot can detect people and larger animals at night – even at a significant distance – and illuminate them.
An infrared camera mounted on the BMW kidney grille transmits images of people and animals directly onto the Control Display. Intelligent early warning system with a bright outlook: As soon as the infrared sensors detect pedestrians or larger animals on a potential collision course in the dark, the system directs two separately controlled Dynamic Light Spots onto them, without any unpleasant dazzling effect. This light ensures that both the driver and the person approaching are very effectively warned of a potentially hazardous situation.
The driver receives additional warnings on the full-colour BMW Head-Up Display or on the instrument cluster if the thermal imaging display has been activated. If there is an acute risk of collision with detected individuals or animals, an acoustic alarm is also sounded and the brakes are prepared for imminent action. BMW Night Vision with Dynamic Light Spot is an innovation from BMW ConnectedDrive.
Surround View includes the camera systems Top View, Rear View and Panorama View. Cameras in the exterior mirrors and two wide-angle cameras, one in the front and one in the rear, enable a 360°-panorama surround view as well as a panorama view of the area in front and behind the vehicle.
Top View captures a 360°-panorama view of the area surrounding the vehicle and uses this data to computer-generate a bird's-eye view to facilitate manoeuvring. The wide-angle Side View camera between the double kidney grilles on the front and the wide-angle Rear View camera enable a panorama view of the area in front and behind the vehicle. The Cross Traffic Assistant assists the driver by first displaying yellow beams on the side edges of the image as well as a yellow warning triangle in the presence of crossing traffic.
The camera systems are activated when the car is put into reverse or the PDC button or Side View button is pressed. The images captured by the cameras are shown on the Control Display. The driver can choose between the Rear View camera, Top View or Panorama View. The Side View function is automatically deactivated when the car moves at speeds of 15 km/h or more.

iDrive Touch Controller
The iDrive Touch Controller with direct menu control buttons, eight functional bookmarks and voice control makes operation intuitive by allowing you to enter the address of your destination in handwriting on its touch-sensitive surface. 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.
