The Driver’s Guide is a vehicle-specific* Owner's Handbook for selected BMW models**.
When using this system for the first time, you require an Internet connection. Once you have entered the vehicle identification number (VIN) the Owner's Handbook that matches your vehicle is downloaded and is then also available without an internet connection. Within the Driver's Guide you can manage a number of vehicles.
Find out about the benefits of your vehicle with the complete Owner's Handbook, a Picture Search or explanatory animations. The better you know the vehicle, the less effort you need when driving.
Depending on the specific vehicle, all or a selection of the following content is available to you:
- The complete Owner's Handbook.
- Brief instructions.
- A search by topics.
- A search by pictures to find functions.
- Explanatory animations.
- Smart Scan. Obtain targeted information on individual operating elements with the help of the smartphone camera.
- Solutions depending on the situation, on the basis of quick links.
- Explanations of the warning and indicator lamps.
- Answers to frequently asked questions (FAQ).

Ratings and Reviews
Hard of hearing driving BMW
Wonderful handbook except for the animation subtitles that doesn’t work.
I put in my M4 Vin and am quite frustrated to get the error message that no guide is available for my car
App not free - I've just been charged for the download
I've just been charged for downloading the app. Should have a price on if it's not free. Disappointed.
