BMW Digital Key Plus offers customers a convenient and secure keyless entry system.

Munich. As one of the pioneers in the use of the smartphone as a digital vehicle key since 2018, BMW is pressing ahead with the development and distribution of the BMW Digital Key with the functions already available for iPhone users. The premium car manufacturer is now developing a convenient and safe way to unlock and start the car without having to take the iPhone out of your pants or carrier pocket. The next stage of expansion of the service is based on ultra-wideband technology (UWB), which is integrated on the U1 chip of the iPhone. The BMW Digital Key Plus is introduced with the fully electric BMW iX.

Ultra-wideband as the basis for more comfort and security.

The additional features now included in the BMW Digital Key Plus are made possible by ultra-wideband technology. This is a digital radio technology for close range with high bandwidth, which is characterized by an extraordinarily precise localization with the greatest possible security. The precision of UWB also ensures that relay attacks in which the radio signal is disturbed or intercepted are not possible. Apple and BMW worked closely with the Car Connectivity Consortium (CCC) to establish the Digital Key Specification 3.0 for UWB, which is a global standard for the automotive industry.

CO2 emissions & consumption.

The stated consumption and CO2 data were determined in accordance with the prescribed measuring method in accordance with Regulation (EC) No. 715/2007 and Regulation (EC) No. 692/2008 (as amended). The values ​​have already been determined on the basis of the new WLTP cycle provided for in the relevant European legal basis and calculated back to the NEDC for comparability. For these vehicles, other values ​​than those given here may apply to the assessment of taxes and other vehicle-related charges that are (also) based on CO2 emissions.

The information relates to a vehicle with basic equipment and optional equipment can increase these values. The ranges take into account differences in the selected wheel and tire size. The information therefore does not relate to the specific vehicle and is not part of the offer, but serves solely for purposes of comparison between the various vehicle types.

The CO2 efficiency information is based on Directive 1999/94 / EC and the Pkw-VIG and uses the consumption and CO2 values ​​of the NEDC for classification. Further information on the official fuel consumption and the official specific CO2 emissions of new passenger cars can be found in the guide on fuel consumption, CO2 emissions and electricity consumption of new passenger cars, which is available at all sales points and with this link is available free of charge. In addition, further details on the specific vehicle can be found in the type approval available from the dealer.
