BMW Motorrad presents the ConnectedRide Navigator.


Munich. Head for the most beautiful locations in the
world while always keeping the destination in your sights – the new
BMW Motorrad ConnectedRide Navigator connects every BMW with
navigation preparation to the roads of the world.

Using the personal BMW ID, all routes, recordings and route
planning are synchronised between the navigator and the BMW Motorrad
app and are therefore also available in the BMW Motorrad app at any
time and from anywhere. Both the maps and the functions of the
navigator are always kept up to date, as the device can be connected
to the internet and can be updated at any time. The way that the BMW
Motorrad ConnectedRide Navigator is operated via the multicontroller
and thanks to its seamless smartphone integration sets new standards
in this product segment.

Large display with high luminosity and perfectly matched to
the BMW Motorrad TFT screens.

A very bright 5.5-inch touchscreen display ensures optimal
readability, even in direct sunlight. The BMW Motorrad ConnectedRide
Navigator is seamlessly matched with the motorcycle displays and the
entire BMW Motorrad world of experience. The graphic design and user
interaction harmonise perfectly and allow seamless integration into
the operating concept of the TFT screen and the BMW Motorrad
ConnectedRide Navigator. The displays are also coordinated with each
other with regard to light intensity, reflection and anti-reflection
coating. The Navigator is charged via the BMW on-board network.
Alternatively, it can also be charged in no time at all using the
included USB-C cable with up to 2.4 A charging current.

Update capability, cloud synchronisation and downward compatibility.

The new BMW Motorrad ConnectedRide Navigator was developed
in-house and updates can be delivered directly via the BMW Motorrad
systems. Analogous to a smartphone, updates for functions and maps are
actively indicated. Updates are installed directly on the BMW Motorrad
ConnectedRide Navigator. The only thing that is required is an online
data connection (WLAN or a SIM card installed by the customer). It
does not have to be connected to a computer.

For the latest traffic information, which is updated in real
time, the navigator can go online either via a WiFi hotspot (which
customers can provide via their smartphone, for example) or via the
SIM card installed by the customer. This is even possible while riding
and the user is always kept up-to-date.

The BMW Motorrad ConnectedRide Navigator is part of the MyBMW
Cloud. Accordingly, the user can log in to the BMW Motorrad
ConnectedRide Navigator with his MyBMW account thereby connecting the
device to the BMW Cloud, where he can synchronise his planned routes,
the routes he has ridden and a great deal more. In this way, the user
can plan an individual route on any end device (BMW app, PC browser,
etc.), which is then immediately available on any registered end
device. Routes created in other planning portals can also be imported
into the BMW Cloud and be used on all registered end devices.

The hardware and software of the new BMW Motorrad ConnectedRide
Navigator are compatible with all BMW motorcycles built from 2014
onwards (with restrictions), provided they have a multicontroller and
if navigation preparation is already installed or has been retrofitted
as part of the Original BMW Motorrad Accessories.

Seamless smartphone integration delivers maximum functional comfort.

In addition, all smartphone functions and in particular media
applications such as Spotify and telephone functions can be centrally
operated and coordinated via the new BMW Motorrad ConnectedRide
Navigator. In particular, the user can control the volume both as a
master volume for all sources and individually for each source. All
other end devices such as the rider and passenger helmets as well as
the BMW Motorrad ConnectedRide Smartglasses can also be connected to
the Navigator via Bluetooth and controlled accordingly. The personal
contacts stored on the smartphone can be used directly on the
navigator for telephone and routing functions.

The new BMW Motorrad ConnectedRide Navigator is available as of
now and simply needs to be clicked into the holder of the navigation
preparation and locked with the motorcycle key.
