Description

Get the best out of your rides by transforming your smartphone into a motorcycle tool using the BMW Motorrad Connected app.

Use our app to build dream routes out of waypoints or import routes as a GPX file. The impressions and data you gather on the way will automatically be saved under your rides.

Simply use Bluetooth to connect with your motorcycle—which is equipped with Connectivity and TFT—and establish a connection to your communication system, if present. No matter whether you select winding or direct routes, verbal announcements and arrow indications that are easily visible in the TFT ensure that our app and your motorcycle will safely get you to your destination. Thanks to operation on the handlebars, you not only have navigation, telephony and music right at hand, but you also get an overview of the most important riding or vehicle data at the same time.

Keep other riders updated on your tours by sharing your routes, riding data and photos in an instant—with friends on social media or Rever.

We are continuously refining our app for you. Stay tuned to discover the latest functions.

To output music, telephony and navigation information, the use of the BMW Motorrad communication system is recommended.
• A mobile Internet connection is necessary to receive traffic data. This can result in costs in accordance with the contract between the customer and provider (such as roaming charges).
• Be aware that the functionality of your smartphone and the connection to the vehicle also depends on national requirements and conditions, and therefore cannot be guaranteed by BMW Motorrad at any time.
• The BMW Motorrad Connected app is displayed in the language configured in the smartphone. Please note that not all languages are supported.
• Continuous use of GPS localization in the background may lead to a reduced battery life.

App with a lot of potential

I am enjoying the app and use it every time I go on my BMW F850GSA. It tracks all my routes, captures pictures and I can review the stats after each ride (speed, lean angle, acceleration etc). It would be great to see weekly/monthly/annual stats as well in terms of distance travelled, average speed, count number of curves etc. This is not available at this point.

Also, for real time directions I always switch to other apps on my phone (Waze,google maps) - the landscape mode of this app needs to be improved to show distance to next turn, current speed, speed cameras etc. I do like the fact that I can design the track with many points /cities to customize my trip (not possible on Waze or Googlemaps on iPhone)

Excellent App.

This app is really cool. I’m not sure why the ratings are so low, but I think it might be because your need to open the app on your phone BEFORE you turn your bike on. Otherwise, it won’t link up to your bike.
The trips feature is really cool. It maps your entire ride/trip and you have the ability to have your pictures taken on that ride marked on the map of where it was taken. It has information like max speed, temperature and total distance. It tells you how far you are from the next gas station and tracks the ride even when your out of cell reception. The only thing I would like to was addressed in a future update would be to have the ability to change tire pressure from BAR to PSI on the app.
This is a must have for anyone with the TFT screen.

A good start!

The navigation is actually quite good, save for some peculiar routing from time to time eg: telling you to stay all the way left in the express lane, then suddenly telling you to exit the highway, which is six lanes wide. And when it tells you to exit, it says "out" of the highway, not "off". It would be great if the app would (or could) auto open and connect to the bike once detected, as is now, it connects to the TFT approximately 75% of the time.

The app largely makes the BMW navigator (V & VI) redundant unless you're going on an extended trip with waypoints/shaping points, or off-road. For day-to-day use, the TFT & app is all you need.
