What is BMW Assist?

April 4th, 2022 by

Did you know that BMW Assist is available on most new BMW models? BMW Assist provides you with a suite of safety, security, and convenience services that add peace of mind, confidence, and convenience to BMW drivers. This safety feature combines hands-free wireless communication and GPS location to connect BMW drivers with whatever assistance is needed. From emergency situations to traffic information and directions, BMW Assist is there when BMW drivers need help the most. BMW Assist provides safety services that connect you with the BMW Assist Response Center, any time, day or night. To initiate the service, just push the SOS button from within your vehicle. After a serious accident, a call is initiated automatically. The system then transmits your location and other vehicle data information to a response specialist who will help resolve your situation. BMW Assist also includes stolen vehicle recovery services, which could reduce your comprehensive insurance premium while increasing your peace of mind. And if you ever get locked out, door unlock service can be requested with just a toll-free call.

What does BMW Assist do?

BMW Assist is similar to GM’s OnStar or Mercedes-Benz mbrace services as they both use the cellular network and Global Positioning telemetry to locate or guide the vehicle. BMW Assist can provide turn-by-turn directions, immediate safety trigger responses, remote unlocking, vehicle diagnostics, airbag deployment notification, theft recovery, and towing or flat tire repair. The service is included free in most new BMWs.

What does it cost to receive BMW Assist safety and convenience services?

BMW Assist is included on most new BMW models. After the BMW-paid term of service is over, the annual Safety Plan fee is $199 plus applicable taxes. You can extend service for your intended ownership or lease period during enrollment. The optional Convenience Plan costs $199 per year, plus applicable taxes. You must be a Safety Plan subscriber to enroll in the optional Convenience Plan.

Because life is always in motion, you can count on BMW Assist for your Ultimate Driving Machine.
