  17. 17. BMW CONNECTED DRIVE: CONVENIENCE, INFOTAINMENT BMW ConnectedDrive AND SAFETY TECHNOLOGIES MEET IN ONE SUITE. In touch with your world. With BMW ConnectedDrive you stay in touch, no matter where you go. Its advanced communications and entertainment features create a network between driver, vehicle and environment, at any time and wherever you are. The following pages present special highlights in the areas of convenience, infotainment and safety. For a comprehensive overview, see bmwusa.com/connecteddrive. Convenience. These BMW ConnectedDrive innovations offer service-oriented functions, so you can always relax in your BMW. Top-, Side- and Rear-view Cameras around the vehicle show the surroundings on the Control Display, for enhanced visibility. The Top-view Camera provides a bird’s-eye view of the road alongside the doors. These images, taken by cameras positioned in the exterior mirrors, help guide you when maneuvering in tight spaces. Side-view Cameras in the front bumpers show traffic approaching the front of the vehicle from the sides, such as when exiting a garage. The Rear-view Camera, located behind the BMW badge on the trunk lid, shows the area behind the vehicle. Working with Park Distance Control, interactive guidelines indicate if the vehicle can fit in a parking space, and display parking trajectories and turn angles. Parking Assistant makes parking a breeze by searching for suitable parking spots and then steering your vehicle into them. Simply press the “Park Assistant” button, then drive along potential parking spaces on the left or right side of the road, staying below   mph and no more than five feet away. Using ultrasonic sensors integrated into the side indicators, the system searches for and measures parking spaces. When a space at least four feet longer than your vehicle is spotted, it is shown on your Control Display. Shift into reverse and Parking Assistant takes control of steering your vehicle into the selected space; you operate the accelerator and brake pedals. The acoustic and visual warnings of Park Distance Control (PDC) provide assistance. Speed Limit Info shows the currently applicable speed limit in the instrument cluster as well as in the Head-up Display (if so equipped). A special camera captures the speed limit posted on signs; a control unit then processes this information together with data from the on-board Navigation system. Other components, such as the vehicle’s rain sensor, are also used, so the system can even factor in variable speed limits for the driver in, for example, wet conditions.
