Drive Recorder - how do you invoke?

Not sure I have it, however Connected Drive said I was subscribed.

Drive Recorder is actually an App on iDrive.

First thing to do after you've subscribed online via Connected Drive is refresh your profile and services in your Car on iDrive. (hit the globe button, then options and choose refresh).

Once it appears as an App, you can configure the time it saves prior recording trigger and after (post) recording trigger. The max setting is 20 seconds prior and 20 seconds post, which means you get a 40 second recording.

Triggering is easy, you can do it from the App, or hit the front Camera button on the iDrive dial console twice quickly.

Note that if the car detects an "accident" event, it automatically triggers the recorder.

Awesome, I assume that it probably doesnít work as a security camera with the car off in case of glass breakage, etc.?

Umm, dont know about that one....

Probably not, as its called a "Drive" recorder, so probably only when the car is on.

Well, Iíll take it anyway! Good to have already built in instead of hanging off the windshield. Thanks for the input!

My dealer said the drive recorder feature will automatically detect a “crash” and record it, even if the car is off.
Another client there had his car bumped into while parked, the car detected that and automatically recorded a clip which was used to identify the other party (it was a hit and run)

It's an app available for purchase if you have the 360 surround view on your car. Even when you didn't spec it during order you can still add by buying the 'service' on the connected website. You do need the nov 2019 software version or up when ordering it on the connected website.

One major drawback is that the camera's are installed on the outside and get dirty. I'm still considering buying a 3rd party setup (blackvue) with camera's installed on the inside of the car.

I ordered it on my new X5 delivered in December in it has the idrive software 7/2019 and it works. Would have be nice though if they would have update me to 11/2019 before delivery.

With all the technology available and already in/on the X5, it seems like it would be a pretty simple implementation to have it as part of the security system. Speaking of which, Iím under the assumption that if the window is broken out (smash n grab), that there is an alarm that would go off. That never was mentioned by my CA, but I assumed the when the red light on the mirror is flashing, itís armed.

I will also go with a Blackvue if someone figures out how to utilize the hundreds of kilos of battery in my 45e for parking mode recording without risking failure to 'start engine'. Some technical docs about the eletrical system would be very nice reading, as the ones I've found don't consider the hybrid.

Did you update to the 11/2019, and you don't have the app available or option to add online? I thought that was a thing

I have 11/2019.40, and can't find any app. Would it be on the CD portal site, or in car? It says I am subscribed to everything when I check the BMW Store in the vehicle. I do have all the surround camera and driver's assistance stuff. Hope I'm not missing something?

It would be in the cd portal through "hub" menu in the cd app.

See screen shot (sorry in Dutch )

If you click on the drive recorder option you have to entre your VIN to see if it is compatible with your car (beschikbaarheid controleren)
