About this app

Get the best out of your rides by transforming your smartphone into a motorcycle tool using the BMW Motorrad Connected app.

Use our app to build dream routes out of waypoints or import routes as a GPX file. The impressions and data you gather on the way will automatically be saved under your rides.

Simply use Bluetooth to connect with your motorcycle—which is equipped with Connectivity and TFT—and establish a connection to your communication system, if present. No matter whether you select winding or direct routes, verbal announcements and arrow indications that are easily visible in the TFT ensure that our app and your motorcycle will safely get you to your destination. Thanks to operation on the handlebars, you not only have navigation, telephony and music right at hand, but you also get an overview of the most important riding or vehicle data at the same time.

Keep other riders updated on your tours by sharing your routes, riding data and photos in an instant—with friends on social media or Rever.

We are continuously refining our app for you. Stay tuned to discover the latest functions.
Here is an overview of all the features that the BMW Motorrad Connected app currently offers you:

• The app is part of BMW Motorrad Connectivity and can only be used actively in combination with vehicles with a TFT display. The connection between smartphone, vehicle and communication system, if present, is established wirelessly via Bluetooth. Operation is possible using the multicontroller on the handlebars. To output music, telephony and navigation information, the use of the BMW Motorrad communication system is recommended.
• A mobile Internet connection is necessary to receive traffic data. This can result in costs in accordance with the contract between the customer and provider (such as roaming charges).
• Be aware that the functionality of your smartphone and the connection to the vehicle also depends on national requirements and conditions, and therefore cannot be guaranteed by BMW Motorrad at any time.
• The BMW Motorrad Connected app is displayed in the language configured in the smartphone. Please note that not all languages are supported.
• Continuous use of GPS localization in the background may lead to a reduced battery life.

So far the app has been very reliable. The phone and radio work great. The nav system maps are spot on and so far, 3 months now it has not dropped out. Only problem is that i can barely hear the vocal comands. Phone and radio through the helmet very loud and i can adjust as needed. Can not make louder with gps. Any suggestions??

I have to agree...when it works, it is nice. Nice data pulls, lots of stats, good nav. But I just rode 300+ miles (K1600gt) and the nav disconnected about...300 times and had to reconnect. Seriously, it's 2023. Android, Apple... something should work. The app should not crash on the #1 bike in the world. Maybe this is why F1 still uses Windows 95....only the drivers crash.

When it works, it's great. It hasn't worked for 5 of the first 8 months of owning. Support is responsive after a few days. But replies are not always helpful... seems like they copy and paste troubleshooting steps without bothering to read what I've told them I've already tried and what the result was. Supposedly the upcoming February update will solve the issue that's preventing me from connecting since October. Disappointed considering it's a $30k bike. I'd rather have wireless Android Auto
