The list of BMW key fob functions keeps growing, from the simple remote unlock of the E46, through the keyless entry fob for vehicles with BMW Comfort Access, to the fully-featured touchscreen Display Key available for the latest models.

The BMW iDrive comes packed full of features, and chances are you'll find one or two that aren't quite what you're looking for.

Luckily, in many cases there's a simple solution: Coding Software for BMW. We take a look at what it is, how to use it and how picking the right BMW coding options can make a world of difference to your car. What is…

When buying a new BMW, you usually purchase not only a vehicle for transportation, but also a tech convenience that has limited or extended navigation & a certain degree of integration with your smartphone. While setting up your future vehicle, you generally have 2–4 media packages to choose from (e.g. Media Package Business or Media Package Business Plus (only in Europe), Media Package Navigation Plus, Media Package Professional, etc.). The Media Package is a number of multimedia and technical features that you will get in your car, and the more it includes, the more expensive your BMW’s overall price is.…

Since its debut in the BMW E65 7 Series in 2001, iDrive has spread to all modern BMW models. The platform also underpins the infotainment system found in Rolls-Royce vehicles and, under the brand name "Connected", can be found in current-generation MINIs. The concept is simple: take as many secondary vehicle controls as possible — music, navigation, climate control etc. — and put them all in one place, right in the middle of the dashboard. This means you have a single, cohesive way to access all your car's features and settings, but can make it difficult to keep track of…

Android Auto was launched in 2015 and the first vehicle manufacturer to offer it as a factory package was Hyundai. Right now it’s available in more than 500 models of different car makes either as a standard feature or an optional extra.

Once you connect an Android device to the vehicle, the car’s screen serves as a display for the Android Auto app, adapted to the vehicle’s user interface. This way you don’t need to engage with your smartphone to start the navigation,…

For many people shopping for a new car, the quality of the infotainment system is an important consideration. It's something the automakers have taken on board, each scrambling to design an in-car system that will be enough to woo prospective buyers. Many, though, still struggle to produce anything that's more than merely functional. And with fragmentation between brands, these systems generally only offer a small handful of third-party integrations, falling back on native solutions for most core features, like navigation, music and messaging. Fortunately, Apple is able to offer iPhone users a compelling alternative in the form of iPhone CarPlay,…

NBT Evo ID5/ID6 is a BMW iDrive system version, sometimes referred to as iDrive 5.0/6.0. It was first announced at the end of 2015, and some 2016 models came to the market already equipped with it. NBT Evo ID5/ID6 was developed as a successor to NBT and NBT Evo ID4, and has a completely different hardware as well as a new user interface. If your BMW originally wasn’t equipped with it, it doesn’t mean you can’t have it :) BimmerTech’s NBT Evo ID5/ID6 retrofit is available for BMW 1-, 2-, 3-, 5-, 6-, 7- and X-Series of Fx and Gx…

Comfort Access is one of those features that really seems to polarize opinions. On the one hand, you've got the people who have used it, and now claim that they'd never buy a car without it, they can't even figure out how to use their partner's car, their eyes are finally open etc. etc. On the other hand, you've got the people who've never had a BMW with Comfort Access, and vehemently deny that keyless entry to your car could ever be worth paying extra for. But what would they know, eh? What is BMW Comfort Access? BMW's Comfort Access…
