BMW Connected, which was introduced in Europe last month following an initial deployment in the United States back in March, is set for another expansion, this time platform-based.

The range of personal mobility services will be available for Android users in Germany and the US from next month. The automaker, together with Samsung, previewed the addition to its personal mobility suite last week at IFA 2016 in Berlin.

Like with the version currently available for Apple products, BMW Connected for Android facilitates the daily planning of trips and appointments, and enable users to reach their destination stress-free and on time. The digital companion comes in the form of a free, downloadable app, which combines the various functions to assist the necessary mobility requirements.

A user simply has to create a BMW Connected customer profile online, and the system then scans for any mobility-related information, such as the addresses and arrival times automatically imported from calendar entries.

Users will be able to search for, store and recall destinations, and frequently visited places and personal mobility patterns are automatically learned in order to provide notifications to the user if travel times are longer than usual.

Destinations can easily be transferred from the phone to BMW’s navigation system. Besides all this, the familiar BMW Remote Services are also available for BMW Connected Android version, allowing a variety of functions – such as the interior climate control, vehicle locking and unlocking, and operating the horn and headlight flasher – to be controlled remotely from a smartphone.

The partnership has announced that in addition to support for popular Samsung smartphone models, BMW Connected will be included into the Tizen ecosystem as well as offer direct integration with the Gear S3 smartwatch.
