Exclusive Benefits

Your exclusive benefits

BMW CarData provides third parties with the option of offering customers customized, personalized services based on their telematics data. Customers can benefit, for instance, from an insurance policy with premiums based on your actual mileage.

How BMW CarData Works

A telematics-compatible BMW vehicle sends specific telematics data to BMW within a valid BMW ConnectedDrive account, subject to service use and availability. This data will be stored on a BMW server. BMW CarData offers BMW customers the option of seeing their currently stored data at any time. Third parties in turn can access specific telematics data with the customer's permission in order to develop and offer personalized services that previously were not available – provided that the customer has explicitly released this data for this third party. So the customer alone decides to whom to entrust their data.
