The transmission date of the latest Teleservice Calls (Teleservice Report, Teleservice Battery Guard and Automatic Teleservice Call) is stored in the vehicle. The data transmitted by these Teleservice Calls will not be stored.
Telematics data are transmitted from the vehicle to a server operated by BMW using a secure connection on a private sub-network of a mobile service provider that is only accessible tor BMW vehicles. This does not require the customer to have a private mobile phone, as communication takes place via a SIM card installed in the vehicle at the factory.
Select "Settings" then "Driver Profiles" in the main menu. Here you will find the three personal driver profiles and the guest profile. The profile that is currently used is marked with a green tick. Now select export via USB, connect a storage medium and press "OK". We recommend the use of a USB storage medium in the "FAT32" or "exFAT" format.

Your individual settings will automatically be saved in a profile and assigned to the used remote key upon leaving the vehicle. When reusing the same remote key for the vehicle the assigned settings are automatically set in the vehicle. Driver profiles are part of BMW ConnectedDrive. They combine various settings for radio stations, Hi-Fi systems, navigation, favorites buttons, seats, mirrors, seering column, camera, lights, central door locking, head-up display, air conditioning, language, driving assistance systems and driveability. You can use up to three driver profiles as well as one guest profile. The different driver profiles can be selected via the control display from the onboard computer. Here it is possible to rename, delete or export your profile on to a USB stick in order to use it in another BMW. With certain older BMW models driver profiles cannot be viewed in the vehicle.
Numerous electronic components in your vehicle contain memories that temporarily store information about the vehicle state and potential fault events. These data serve to identify faults and to repair these. In order to provide BMW ConnectedDrive services some of the data stored in the vehicle are forwarded to the BMW server in the form of telematics data via the permanently installed SIM card.
For security reasons, the security token is only valid for four hours. Once a new security token is requested previously requested tokens become invalid. Therefore it is not recommended to request several tokens within a short period of time.
