The BMW i8 intelligent key, a first of its kind

rsz_1i8_key

The BMW i8 is poised to revolutionize the hybrid sports car class in many ways. We expected amazing ecotech, however we were not expecting to be blown away by the key fob. Containing its own high resolution LCD display it is reportedly able to show charge levels, time on charge, as well as the distance the vehicle can travel before recharging/fueling. This key fob may just be smarter than your smart phone. In fact its like having a mini smart phone dedicated to your car. Wherever you may be, you are connected to your vehicle. You can even preset the temperature so it’s defrosted and warm in the winter, or cooled down and ready in the summer, all before you arrive at your car.

If the smart key is any indication about the amazing technology this car will possess, frankly we cant wait to take it for a spin.

Tech Update: New Radio App for BMW and Mini Drivers

August 9, 2012  |  Featured, Media, Tech Tips, Technology

BMW has begun offering a much more personalized, intimate way to listen to radio for BMW drivers with BMW Apps and Mini Drivers with Mini Connected. This new update comes in the form of a fully-integrated Stitcher SmartRadio™ App experience for any compatible vehicles. More than just a simple radio app, the Stitcher SmartRadio™ App allows BMW and Mini Drivers to create their own personal talk radio stations by selecting content and programs that they enjoy to form a seamless radio listening experience that is expertly tailored to the driver’s interest. In addition to providing access to programs that the driver already enjoys, the App will make suggestions about possible programs that the driver might be interested in, based on the preferences that he or she has already expressed. This groundbreaking partnership between Stitcher and BMW is, in part, an attempt to allow BMW and Mini Drivers to have access to the same functionality in their cars that they possess in their smartphones.

BMW xDrive Intelligent AWD

March 6, 2012  |  Tech Tips

To drive or to xDrive? BMW’s xDrive is a highly “intelligent” electrical all-wheel-drive traction control system that uses Dynamic Stability Control (DSC) sensors to detect road conditions and redistribute power to the axles as needed. This video with Kuni BMW Client Advisor Jarod Loux demonstrates the advantages of xDrive when driving in slick, icy road conditions. We also take a look at the competition, such as Audi’s Quattro system.
