BMW: ConnectedDrive bekommt Siri Eyes Free, S Voice und Android-Support

bmw-connected-drive-580x320 BMW: ConnectedDrive bekommt Siri Eyes Free, S Voice und Android-Support Technologie

Als technikbegeisterter Nutzer, der in allen Bereichen Wert auf technische Raffinessen legt, hat man es beim Autokauf nicht immer leicht. Obwohl die Autohersteller darum bemüht sind, mit den Entwicklungen in diesem Bereich Schritt zu halten, hinkt man trotzdem irgendwie immer hinterher. Das beste Beispiel dafür ist Siri Eyes Free, eine Technologie, die bereits auf der WWDC 2012 vorgestellt wurde. Bislang hat kaum einer der offiziellen Partner von Apple (Audi, BMW, Chrysler, GM, Honda, Jaguar, Land Rover, Mercedes und Toyota) Siri Eyes Free in die jeweiligen Infotainment-Systeme integriert. BMW stellt die Integration nun zumindest in Aussicht.

With the latest update to BMW iDrive, both Apple Siri and Samsung S Voice can be accessed through the vehicle’s voice command controls. With a paired device, pressing and holding the steering wheel voice command button will engage the device’s voice access. Pressing the steering wheel voice button without holding it will continue to access the vehicle’s voice command functions.

Diese Features wird ConnectedDrive ab der iDrive Firmware-Version 4.2 unterstützen, die allerdings erst für die 2014er-Modelle geplant ist. Dabei vergisst BMW neben Apple natürlich auch Samsung nicht, wie die Integration von S Voice zeigt. Weiterhin sind die Unterstützung von Android-Apps und die Möglichkeit, während das Auto steht im Web zu surfen, geplant.

BMW is extending its standing as the world’s leading provider of web-based in-car services by introducing some major enhancements. BMW ConnectedDrive customers are now able to further improve their mobile Internet experience with the help of browser-based applications (vehicle apps) in BMW Online such as Yelp and Google Street View. For yet greater convenience while travelling, there is the BMW Connected app for smartphones, which includes functions such as web radio, Facebook, Twitter, calendar, Wiki Local, Last Mile plus several more besides. All applications, regardless of whether they are vehicle apps used via BMW Online or smartphone apps, are controlled using the iDrive controller and Control Display with the familiar menu structure. In addition to all future BMW ConnectedDrive customers, the extended range of services is also available to a large number of existing customers at no extra charge.

Third-party apps mean the infotainment possibilities are virtually boundless.

The highly flexible app concept makes it possible to incorporate not just the applications specially developed by the BMW Group, but also BMW Apps-ready applications from other providers. With the advent of these BMW Apps-ready applications, BMW is giving customers the option of continuing to use their favorite or familiar service providers when driving in their car, too. This will allow the wide array of infotainment functions that BMW drivers enjoy when at home or out and about to be smoothly transferred to their vehicle in future.

Wie wichtig ist euch die Smartphone- und Internet-Integration in eurem Auto?
