Model Highlights

The iDrive System
All information, entertainment and comfort features are controlled via the iDrive system featuring a larger, 10.25-inch, high-resolution display; more intuitive controls; and four direct-entry buttons for accessing radio, CD, telephone, and navigational features. Furthermore, the integrated Hard Disk Drive offers an ample 12 GB of storage for importing your favorite music from CDs, MP3 players, or USB sticks. Compared with its competitors, the B7's iDrive offers superior ergonomics with a high-mounted display and center console controller. All this ensures drivers’ eyes stay on the road, not on the screen or controls.

Beyond the standard functions, the iDrive system also accesses BMW Assist® services. The BMW Assist Safety Plan — included for four years at no extra costs — offers an arsenal of safety, security, and convenience services. Trained response specialists are available at the touch of a button, ready to provide you with enhanced roadside assistance. The system also includes Bluetooth® hands-free calling capabilities with speech recognition.

Partnering with Google, B7 drivers can save time by sending a destination from the Internet directly to their BMW before beginning a journey. MyInfo allows drivers to upload business listings, street addresses, and phone numbers to the B7 for immediate navigational assistance. Drivers can also search Google maps from within the vehicle by subscribing to the optional BMW Assist Convenience Plan. With "BMW Search," users can quickly find desired businesses through Google’s powerful search engine.
