YOUR INSTANT DISTRESS SIGNAL.
Intelligent emergency call permits fast, targeted assistance in emergency situations round-the-clock as well as support by trained staff – in the driver's native language, even when abroad. If a serious accident takes place involving activation of an air bag or the belt tensioners, an intelligent emergency call is automatically issued. Relevant details for rescue such as the exact position of the car, the severity of the accident and the possible risk of injury to occupants are transmitted to the BMW Call Centre via the car’s built-in SIM card, i.e. independently of a private mobile phone. The BMW Call Centre informs the nearest rescue coordination centre and provides assistance the over the phone until the rescue services arrive. The emergency call can also be triggered manually in case others on the road require help, for example.
