At our Markham dealership, our customers can find a large selection of new and pre-owned BMW vehicles that feature BMW Assist. In this article, we share some information about BMW Assist so that you can better understand how this feature works in your BMW vehicle.

BMW Assist Emergency Call (SOS) 

After pressing the SOS button, your vehicle’s location and other important data are transmitted to the BMW Assist Response Centre. A response specialist will speak with you to coordinate dispatch, notify your emergency contacts, and link you to BMW Roadside Assistance as needed/requested. Emergency directions may also be provided. If an airbag is deployed, BMW Assist Emergency Call automatically contacts the BMW Call Centre via an accident-proof telephone unit permanently installed in your vehicle. Specially trained personnel will then establish contact with you and inform emergency services.

Remote Door Unlock 

This helpful feature allows you to gain access to your BMW if you are ever locked out of your vehicle. Simply call BMW Assist toll free, provide your name and password, and a response specialist will send a signal to your vehicle to remotely unlock the driver’s door.

Stolen Vehicle Recovery 

If your BMW is ever stolen, after filing a police report, call the BMW Assist Response Centre to remotely activate your BMW Assist system to locate your vehicle and help the police recover it. This service may even reduce your insurance premium.

Automatic Collision Notification 

In the event of an impact, collision, or rollover, the location, and vehicle information are automatically sent to the BMW Assist Response Centre. A response specialist will then attempt to establish voice contact with you or the vehicle’s occupant. In the event there is no response, the Response Centre will direct the appropriate emergency services to the vehicle’s location. If contact is established, the response specialist will provide a reassuring presence, while a second specialist will coordinate emergency dispatch.
