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 completely 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 more additional functions available with the free BMW Motorrad Connected App. Connectivity gives motorcyclists the opportunity to focus on what really matters: the streets waiting to be discovered.
Using the Connectivity optional accessory in conjunction with the BMW Motorrad Connected App makes everyday 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.
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.

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.
With the free BMW Motorrad Connected app, there are even more connectivity options: smartphone-based navigation guides you to your destination quickly with the innovative turn-by-turn arrows on the TFT-display. In terms of maps, the app is supported by TomTom with its long-term experience in motorcycle routes. Moreover, important information such as riding statistics can be viewed via the BMW Motorrad Connected app. What’s more, routes can be logged and have images added to them. So you can have digital memories from every tour. The First Mile function saves the location of where your motorcycle is parked so that you can find it easily again. With the BMW Motorrad Connected App you can also share all you Rever tours with your friends. In addition, the newly designed and updated app offers you many optimized features and is also perfectly suited for motorcycle navigation: With the “Windy Route” route option – and other interesting choices – you will experience the ultimate experience on your motorcycle. The BMW Motorrad Connected app can be installed from the Google and Apple app stores.
