The best connection for more comfort and safety.
The next oil change, vehicle check, new brake pads. These are appointments you no longer need to think about. Just lean back and relax – your BMW knows when and what services it needs and sends the vehicle-related service data automatically to BMW. Your preferred BMW Service Partner can then access the data quickly and get in touch with you right away. With BMW TeleServices from BMW ConnectedDrive you’re free to do what you really want to.
OVERVIEW OF BMW TELESERVICES.
BMW TeleServices are innovative BMW ConnectedDrive services that offer maximum comfort and let you focus on the important things in life. Through BMW TeleServices, your preferred BMW Service Partner receives detailed information from BMW regarding the condition of the vehicle, information which was previously available only through a workshop visit. This guarantees personalised service for your vehicle as well as a quick reaction in the event of a malfunction.
With the Automatic BMW Teleservice Call your BMW knows when a service is due. Through the Condition Based Service (CBS) sensors, the car identifies service requirements and automatically transmits all service-related data to BMW. Your preferred BMW Service Partner retrieves the data, is informed about the service need and vehicle status, and calls you to arrange a workshop appointment, if necessary.
In the event of a breakdown or technical malfunction, you can initiate the BMW Breakdown Call to get assistance, while the BMW Teleservice Update ensures that your mobile devices and media players are always well connected to your BMW. BMW Teleservice Battery Guard reliably keeps an eye on your battery day and night and informs you if the battery’s state of charge drops below a certain level.

How the Automatic BMW Teleservice Call Works
Condition Based Service (CBS) sensors constantly monitor fluid levels (e.g. engine oil) or wear-and-tear components (e.g. brake pads). If a service appointment is needed, your BMW automatically transmits all service-related data to BMW. Your preferred BMW Service Partner will call you to arrange an appointment, if necessary. Due to the accuracy of the data relayed, the service appointment can be prepared perfectly with all required components and spare parts – so the vehicle only stays at the Service Centre for a minimum time period. Forget about inflexible service intervals. You only drive to the workshop if you have to.
How the Manual BMW Teleservice Call works
You can activate the Manual BMW Teleservice call via the iDrive system in your vehicle at any time. All relevant data will be sent to BMW from your vehicle. Your preferred BMW Service Partner will receive a message asking him to get in touch with you. When the data has been evaluated, your Service Partner will call you back to arrange an appointment. This gathered information allows your preferred Service Partner to be perfectly prepared, to attend to your personal needs and – if necessary – to order the desired accessories in advance.
How the BMW Teleservice Breakdown Call works
In the event of a breakdown or malfunction in your BMW, simply select BMW ConnectedDrive via the iDrive menu and the function Mobile Care. At the press of a button, you can transmit the current vehicle data to our Mobile Care specialists for evaluation. Our specialists are able to remotely diagnose your BMW as if it were in the workshop. With the help of an automatic voice connection our specialists will inform you about the condition of the vehicle and the next steps. They are often able to rectify certain problems remotely. If remote maintenance isn’t possible, a Mobile Care vehicle will be dispatched right away or you’ll be directed to the nearest BMW Service Partner. The vehicle data will be transmitted to the BMW Service Partner to ensure that he’s optimally prepared to service your vehicle.
How the BMW Teleservice Battery Guard works
An eye on your battery: in case your battery’s state of charge drops below a certain level, due to parking lights being left on, for example, BMW Teleservice Battery Guard is triggered automatically and informs you immediately by text message or email, depending on which variant you selected in the BMW ConnectedDrive portal. BMW Teleservice Battery Guard stays activated until the next time you start your BMW. If necessary, your preferred BMW Service Partner will get in touch to arrange a service appointment.
How the BMW Teleservice Update works
Regular driver updates ensure the compatibility of your BMW with your mobile devices. Go to BMW Teleservice Update via ‘Settings’ and ‘Software update’ in the intuitive iDrive menu in your BMW. Whether it’s a mobile phone or USB media player: you’ll see the latest software updates available on your display. These updates are often small data packages and can be downloaded and installed quickly – thus ensuring your mobile devices and your BMW are always up to date and keeping you optimally connected without the need to visit a BMW Service Partner.
