About this app

Get the most out of your rides by turning your smartphone into a motorbiking tool thanks to the BMW Motorrad Connected app.

Plan your dream route or import routes as GPX files with our app.

As the app is connected to your motorcycle, you have the option to record all relevant information for your ride.

If your BMW motorcycle is equipped with a TFT display and connectivity functions, simply connect to your motorbike via Bluetooth for this.

Your BMW motorbike does not have a TFT display, but it does have a multicontroller and is equipped for a navigation system? Then simply get the ConnectedRide Cradle and transform your smartphone into a motorcycle display.

Whether you select the "Winding" or "Fast" option, thanks to voice commands to your communication system and navigation instructions that are easy to see on the display, you can always keep an eye on your route. The intuitive operation with the multicontroller allows you to safely control everything without having to take your hands off the handlebars.

Do you want to keep your community up to date? Simply share your riding data and photos on social media.

We continuously develop our app for you – and we hope that you'll stay excited to discover its new functions.

Notes for use.
• This app is part of BMW Motorrad Connectivity and can only be used when connected to a vehicle with a TFT display or the ConnectedRide Cradle. The connection is established wirelessly between a smartphone, the vehicle/Cradle and – if available – a communication system via Bluetooth; the app is operated using the multicontroller on the handlebars. We recommend using the BMW Motorrad communication system for listening to music, making telephone calls and receiving navigation instructions.
• A mobile Internet connection is required to access traffic information. This may incur costs in line with the contract between the customer and their mobile provider (e.g. for roaming).
• Please note that the functionality of your smartphone and the connection to the vehicle also depend on national requirements and factors; BMW Motorrad therefore cannot guarantee that it will be available at all times.
• The BMW Motorrad Connected app will be displayed in the language you have set for your smartphone. Please note that not all languages are supported.
• Continued use of GPS tracking in the background may reduce the battery life of your smartphone.

This is one of my frustrations. I have a super motorcycle with a GPS that does not accept places where I want to go. Then you download an app that does not connect. Guys, this is BMW. Pay attention. You just release products when it is ready to go. Otherwise don't do it. I wonder if share holders are aware of this issue. Part of experiencing the motorcycle is travel. I need to rely on my senses because these bits were not tested or put together. This is a real weekend breaking point.

21 plate R1250RT. From day one I have had nothing but problems with connectivity. Sometimes I have maps and comms, then I'll lose comms, or maps, or both. During rides the maps have completely lost my route and I've had to stop to reboot the system. I've spent 3 years trying all the parameters known to man. Absolutely no confidence in this system whatsoever.

Used to work ok with GS1250 Adventure, now with GS1300 it's not working after first use. Navigation freezes. When exit navigation the moto screen returns to it, still frozen. Bluetooth connection going connected and off again. Everything shows OK and connected until you go to navigation on your phone and phone shows unknown error with connection. All permissions are okey. Cache cleared reinstalled, etc. same reoccurs. Awaiting to recieve the BMW Cradle for using Google maps... S21 ultra.
