Munich. Online Entertainment from BMW ConnectedDrive stands for premium in-car music pleasure. The option provides direct access to the entire world of music and a range of spoken content. Online Entertainment’s latest partner is the music provider Napster, which offers a catalogue of over 20 million titles covering every possible genre – from rock, pop and soul to classical and jazz – in addition to thousands of audiobooks.

Connectivity from vehicle to music provider is via the car’s built-in SIM card, which ensures optimum transmission quality at all times. Requirements are ConnectedDrive Services and the BMW Navigation System Professional. 

Real unlimited music streaming.
Users accessing Online Entertainment for the first time can automatically open a user account by entering their email address. This gives a year’s free access to all music titles offered by your chosen provider, such as Napster or rara. Unlike with some smartphone solutions, Online Entertainment offers unlimited music streaming with no restriction on the number of titles selected or data volume. Full access to the catalogue of music services is available at no additional cost in France, Germany, Great Britain, Italy, the Netherlands and Spain.

When you use Online Entertainment to select a track from a music partner – searching by artist, album or genre is simplicity itself – the piece of music is automatically downloaded to the hard drive of the vehicle’s BMW Navigation System Professional. And while your selected track is being played, the system starts downloading the album’s next track in order to provide an uninterrupted audio experience. This simultaneously expands your library on the hard drive, which has space for up to 10,000 titles that can be replayed at any time – even without connecting to the music provider, e.g. if you are not in one of the participating countries. 

Intuitive controls, innovative functions, flexible usage.
Connectivity to BMW’s music partners means Online Entertainment not only provides access to a huge catalogue of music. The innovative Connected Music function further enhances music pleasure by creating opportunities to discover new artists. When you select a piece of music via Online Entertainment, for example, the function automatically suggests other tracks or albums by the same artist. If required, Connected Music proposes titles similar to the one currently playing, permitting a virtually unlimited journey into the world of music. Content and performers may change dynamically, but they always match the preselected musical style.

Napster also offers hundreds of pre-programmed music channels and playlists specially compiled by Napster’s in-house editorial team to reflect a mood, occasion, era or recent releases. This makes it easy to get started and begin enjoying almost boundless audio entertainment.

Online Entertainment is controlled via the user-friendly iDrive System and Control Display, which can be found in the main menu under Multimedia. And drivers can continue to enjoy music even away from the vehicle. With Online Entertainment, unlimited music streaming is also available on any other device supported by the provider, including smartphones, tablets, TVs, Macs and PCs.

CO2 emission information.

The following applies to consumption figures for vehicles with new type approval, September 2017 onward: The figures for fuel consumption, CO2 emissions and energy consumption are obtained in accordance with the specified measuring procedure (EC Regulation No. 715/2007), as issued and amended. The figures are for a basic-version vehicle in Germany. The bandwidths allow for differences in the choice of wheel and tire sizes and items of optional equipment and can be changed by the configuration.

Obtained on the basis of the new "Worldwide harmonized Light vehicles Test Procedure" (WLTP), the figures are converted back to the "New European Driving Cycle" (NEDC) for the sake of comparability. Values other than those stated here may be used for the purposes of taxation and for other vehicle-related duties relating to CO2 emissions.

More information about official fuel consumption figures and the official specific CO2 emissions of new passenger cars can be obtained from the "guideline on fuel consumption, CO2 emissions and current consumption of new passenger cars", available here: https://www.dat.de/co2/.
