The Apps equipment feature is a platform enabling convenient use of selected smartphone apps in BMW vehicles. To make a variety of apps available for their customers, BMW not only develops its own apps, such as BMW ConnectedDrive app and the BMW M Laptimer, but also works closely with partners like TuneIn, Glympse, and Stitcher Radio and the GoPro App, so that those apps can also be used safely inside the car. Simply attach a compatible smartphone to the vehicle with the snap-in adapter if one is available, or a USB cable. All of the app's functions can then be conveniently operated via the iDrive Controller. The selection of apps available for use in the car is constantly expanding thanks to close partnerships between BMW and a variety of different suppliers. For further information see www.bmw.com/apps.
