Infotainment in the BMW 3 Series Gran Turismo.

Stay up-to-date and entertained thanks to infotainment systems in the BMW 3 Series Gran Turismo. From Bluetooth Office and in-car internet, to a premium sound system and web-based mobility services, the BMW 3 Series Gran Turismo has everything for a connected life.

BMW ConnectedDrive.

With BMW ConnectedDrive services, BMW combines unique technology to offer you advanced mobility. BMW ConnectedDrive intelligently links the vehicle, driver and outside world. Short distances are bridged by ultrasound, while longer distances are covered by mobile technology. Intelligent interplay between online services, driver assistance systems, call centre services and integration solutions for smartphones, provides BMW drivers with increased comfort, the right information at the right time or the reassuring feeling of greater safety on all journeys.

BMW Apps.

Part of ConnectedDrive, BMW Apps enable you to use numerous applications via your iPhone or with the ‘BMW Connected’ App. These include web radio stations, your iPhone calendar, Facebook, Twitter and many more.
After downloading ‘BMW Connected’ in the Apple App Store free of charge, all you need to do is connect your iPhone to your vehicle using the snap-in adapter or the original Apple cable and then start the app. You can then regulate all functions comfortably using the iDrive Controller. Thanks to the text-to-speech function, you can hear your latest status messages or appointments through the loudspeakers of the audio system.
The wide range of BMW Apps is being expanded constantly, so that you’ll be able to choose from even more in the future. Further information is available via the link below.

BMW Online.

The BMW Online portal is part of BMW ConnectedDrive and offers you the latest location-based details on a variety of categories, including news, weather, travel, information and office.
In addition to a search engine based on Google™ Local Search, you can access tailor-made information on stocks and shares or the weather as well as your personal email account. With BMW Browser Apps under the menu item ‘Applications’, you can also put together your own collection of individual services and features.

Bluetooth Office.

You can now use the time you spend in your vehicle even more effectively. An optional connection for Bluetooth and USB devices in combination with a navigation system and the intelligent integration of selected business mobiles enables office functions such as emails, appointments, tasks or text messages to appear on the Control Display or be heard via text-to-speech through the audio system’s loudspeakers. And with Bluetooth audio streaming, music files can be enjoyed cable-free via selected Bluetooth-compatible devices.

Dictation function.

Dictate and send email and text messages while on the move. Better still, with the optional BMW Professional Multimedia Navigation system, Bluetooth connection and ConnectedDrive services, you no longer need to pick up your mobile phone.
Thanks to the new dictation function in the vehicle and the off-board speech recognition by Nuance®, what you say is converted into a text message that can be sent immediately via email or text. You can use the dictation function free of charge in your vehicle for a period of 60 days. Continued use in your vehicle requires a contract with Nuance®. You can find out whether your mobile device is compatible with this function via the link below.


Whether you need to check the balance in your bank account, place a bid on eBay or look something up in Wikipedia, the BMW ConnectedDrive Internet option ensures that you can do whatever you need to do online.
To enable you to browse, the iDrive Controller in the centre console doubles as a computer mouse when your Bluetooth mobile device is connected to your vehicle. Costs vary according to your contract with a mobile provider.

The harman/kardon loudspeaker system offers a listening experience to rival any concert hall. An equalizing digital amplifier with 600W output and individually selectable equalising guarantees top-quality sound.
A total of 16 finely tuned speakers – seven mid-range, seven tweeters and two centre bass – provide the acoustic highlights inside the vehicle, with the aluminium harman/kardon lettering in the mirror triangles adding a visual flourish.
