This fall, BMW introduces an automotive first: the new Mobile Office feature, included with BMW Assist.™ With the BMW Navigation system and certain BlackBerry smartphones linked to your BMW via Bluetooth® technology, BMW’s Mobile Office feature transfers text messages and emails to your iDrive Display screen and reads them aloud.

A Calendar and To-do List appear on your display screen, helping you keep track of appointments. Running late? Using the iDrive Controller knob, click on the phone number and the system calls your appointment. Conduct conference calls – the display screen keeps you informed of the status of incoming calls. And if you’ve uploaded photos to your on-board phonebook, you can even see who’s on the line.

It’s not just your professional life that’s enhanced. Added media player functionality increases your listening pleasure, too. Plug in your iPod® or iPhone® using the original USB cable, and access your entire audio library. While your selection is playing, the album cover art is shown on your display screen. You can also play music wirelessly through the BMW audio system from any Bluetooth compatible music player or mobile phone from anywhere in the vehicle.
