The Driver’s Guide is a vehicle-specific Owner's Manual for BMW i models.
When using this system for the first time, you require an Internet connection. After you enter the vehicle identification number (VIN), the Owner's Manual for your vehicle is downloaded and is subsequently available without an Internet connection. Multiple vehicles can be managed within the Driver’s Guide.
You can acquaint yourself with the features of your vehicle by reading the full Owner's Manual, searching by picture, or viewing the explanatory videos. The more familiar you are with your vehicle, the better control you will have on the road.

Ratings and Reviews
Could not be happier
E-manual is welcome. Terse and cryptic manual is unhelpful
Having an e-manual is a useful thing, and the search functionality is helpful. It also provides the manual specific to your car with entry of the VIN.
Unfortunately the content of the manual, just as with the printed version, is remarkably UNhelpful, with very little real information on the many features and functions of this complex vehicle. Audi, Subaru, Mazda, Honda, and---heaven forbid---even GM gets this stuff right. With BMW you end up having to ask the dealer in follow-up visits, and even their representatives don't know how to use the car's gadgets and things. No wonder BMW drivers can't drive: they can't figure out their cars!
