These BMWs can be parked with your iPhone

Hate trying to squeeze out after parking your car bmw ix, X7or 7 . series in a narrow space? The model update means you won’t have to anymore.

This functionality is already available in Australia on the new 7 Series, we will update this story with details on when it will arrive on the iX and X7, when they become available.

The new Extended Parking Assistant Professional function allows owners to use the My BMW iPhone app to pull their vehicle out of a parking space or drive in without anyone getting behind the wheel.

Similar functionality is offered on Hyundai, Kia and Genesis vehicles, but instead of relying on a smartphone app, the Smart Park system is controlled by buttons on the car key.

However, BMW has gone a step further by combining remote control technology with Maneuver Assistant.

Capable of saving up to 10 different operations up to 200m in length, the system can essentially perform a complex, pre-recorded sequence – steering, accelerating, braking and shifting – without the driver entering it. Whether.

Previously, it could only be activated from inside the vehicle. Owners can now start a sequence from their iPhone.

While Maneuver Assistant is capable of longer sequences than simply pulling in/out of a parking space, owners still need to be within six meters of the car to operate the car with their phone.
