The cordless Bluetooth mobile phone means you can do away with the cumbersome cable between your mobile handset and the hands-free equipment. Bluetooth-compatible mobile phones register with the on-board computer via the optional interface as soon as the driver approaches the vehicle. Telephone numbers, addresses and call lists are then automatically synchronised with the on-board computer. During the journey, the mobile phone can be operated using the multifunction steering wheel or the hands-free equipment. There is a snap-in-adapter available for the Apple iPhone. You local BMW partner will be happy to inform you of the mobile phones with which the Bluetooth interface is compatible.
An adjunct to the optional BMW Professional navigation system in the BMW 1 Series, Voice Control puts your words into instant action. It enables you to adjust any of the central iDrive functions by speech alone. It even offers a text-to-speech function that can read incoming e-mails aloud. Convenience, safety, comfort: Voice Control ensures that you are not distracted from the most important aspect of the BMW 1 Series - driving.
