Next generation navigation

Typical BMW design

As if cut from the same cloth: both the graphic design and the user interaction. Hardware and software are harmoniously coordinated for efficiently controlling your BMW motorcycle. The intuitive screen design facilitates simple operation at all times.

Hardware for hard wear

The hardware has been designed for the needs of motorcyclists, meaning the toughest of use. It can withstand dust, hard knocks, freezing cold and extreme heat and can be cleaned with a high-pressure cleaner. This quality has earned it IP69 certification.

Has everything on the screen

The 5.5" touchscreen display is very easy to read, even in sunlight. The TFT display and ConnectedRide Navigator work together perfectly. Once the navigator is connected, the telephone, navigation and media elements are greyed out on the TFT display.

Everything perfectly interconnected

Everything perfectly interconnected

Whether you're using BMW ConnectedRide products or your smartphone, the ConnectedRide Navigator combines all the devices and media applications into one device. For example, the navigation function, telephony and media are greyed out on the TFT display of the bike and clearly shown on the display of the ConnectedRide Navigator when the connection between bike and navigator is active. And thanks to BMW ID and BMW Motorrad Cloud Integration, you can easily synchronise your route planning from the BMW Motorrad Connected app with the ConnectedRide Navigator.

With the navigation preparation, available as optional equipment for new models or as a retrofit solution, the ConnectedRide Navigator also connects many older BMW motorbikes built from 2014 onwards to the roads of the world. Simply click in, lock and enjoy the benefits of the ConnectedRide Navigator.

Reach your destination exactly the way you want

Easily plan your favourite routes. They are automatically synchronised between the Connected app and the navigator via the ConnectedRide Cloud. This means you always have an overview of the current status on all devices. You can import externally planned routes and choose from three route options: Hard destinations with waypoints that you have to drive to or actively skip. Soft destinations with anchor points that you can use for orientation. Or an almost metre-precise route with many anchor points; e.g. for off-road riding. You can also display several routes at the same time to stay spontaneous. Start your next adventure perfectly prepared.
