G05 technology and driver assistant aids - bits of knowledge from dealer training

Standard Safety.

The all-new X5 comes standard with Rearview Camera, Park Distance Control, and Active Driving Assistant, which includes Active Blind Spot Detection, Lane Departure Warning, Frontal Collision Warning with City Collision Mitigation, Cross Traffic Alert Rear, and Speed Limit Information. In addition to this, optional upgrades are available within the Driving Assistance Professional Package and Parking Assistance Package.


Active Driving Assistant Professional.

Available as an option, the Driving Assistant Professional package is comprised of the Extended Traffic Jam Assistant for limited-access highways (expected to be available from 12/2018) as well as Lane Keeping Assistant with active side collision protection, in addition to various other features. For instance, the Automatic Lane Change feature can be used on highways when the Lane Keeping Assistant is active. Holding the turn signal stalk in the required direction is all it takes to initiate a lane change. If the sensors detect that there is space in the adjacent lane and that no other vehicle is approaching at high speed, the vehicle will complete the lane change on its own. Another component of the system is the evasion aid, which can help avoid collisions with vehicles or pedestrians suddenly appearing in the driver’s path. As soon as an evasive maneuver corresponding to such a scenario is detected, the system assists the driver with steering inputs to direct the vehicle into a clear adjacent lane.

The array of assistance systems contained in this wide-ranging suite of safety and comfort features also includes of the Active Cruise Control (ACC) with Stop & Go and Cross Traffic Alert Front which reduces the risk of a collision when maneuvering forwards towards crossing traffic where visibility is restricted. Also, changing speed limits identified by the Speed Limit Info system can be used by the automatic cruise control system to match the vehicle’s cruise control speed to the road’s posted speed limit.

A new development in the field of safety systems is the Emergency Stop Assistant, which is also a component of the Active Driving Assistant Professional package. Intended to be used in situations where the driver is suddenly incapacitated because of a medical emergency, it is activated by pulling the electric parking brake switch. Depending on the driving situation and the vehicle’s surroundings, the Emergency Stop Assistant will bring the vehicle to a standstill either in the current lane, at the edge of the road or on the hard shoulder. At the same time, the hazard warning lights are activated and the Intelligent Emergency Call function automatically notifies the BMW Assist call center so the emergency services can be alerted.


Parking Assistant Plus.

The Parking Assistant Plus in the new BMW X5 enables automatic selection and use of parallel parking spaces. These parking spaces are detected by ultrasonic sensors as the vehicle passes them. The Parking Assistant function is activated at the touch of a button on the center console. The system then takes care of the acceleration, braking, steering and gear changes necessary to maneuver into the space. This function also contains a Surround View Camera, 3D View, and allows for Remote 3D View in the BMW Connected App.


Back-up Assistant.

An all new feature for BMW, the Back-up Assistant allows for increased comfort when maneuvering in a confined area. The system takes over steering to maneuver the vehicle mirroring the path most recently used in the forward direction. This system makes reversing for a distance of up to 55 yards a particularly effortless task. All the driver has to do is operate the accelerator and brakes and monitor the surrounding area. The system is initiated by pressing the menu button when the vehicle is stationary. The steering movements made during the vehicle’s last forward maneuver are stored by the system and retained, even from drives from the previous day.


Seventh generation of the BMW iDrive Operating System.

The BMW Live Cockpit Professional in the X5 combines a new display and control concept and the ultimate in connectivity to create a superb all-round package. The latest-generation of the iDrive comprises a high-resolution digital 12.3” instrument cluster display behind the steering wheel and a 12.3” center display. The system offers many hardware upgrades including new haptic controls on the iDrive controller, an advanced tablet-like touch interface, stunning visualizations, and the largest displays in a BMW yet. The multi-modal approach of the iDrive touch controller, large touchscreen center display, cloud based voice control, and Gesture Control allow users to interact in the way of their choosing.

The seventh incarnation of iDrive, which runs the latest BMW Operating System can be customized with different widgets of information. This new level of personalization is then stored in the BMW cloud and can follow the customer to other BMW vehicles with iDrive 7.0. Various information from categories such as driving, entertainment, navigation, connectivity, and the vehicle info itself, can be selected in nearly any combination in any of four layouts on the Center Display. Multiple pages can be created and easily accessed with a simple swipe across the screen with your finger.

To maximize the capabilities of the large 12.3” digital instrument cluster, the traditional circular gauges have been finessed into an all-new design pushing the speedometer and tachometer gauges to the outer edges of the display as geometric bands. This new design opens space in the middle for routing and navigation. Information from the center display can also be shown within the tachometer. Additionally, your driving mode will determine your visual display style.

Other elements of the BMW Live Cockpit Professional are the Navigation Professional system, a hard-drive-based multimedia system with 20 GB of memory and two USB ports, plus Bluetooth interfaces. The driver can be automatically detected and personal settings activated either using the traditional vehicle key or by downloading the driver’s personal settings the BMW Cloud.

Drivers can enjoy the full benefits of the vehicle’s intelligent connectivity capabilities through vehicle apps such as news, weather, office and online search. Other capabilities include Intelligent Emergency Call – which automatically summons swift assistance in an emergency – and regular updates for the navigation system’s maps.

For the first time, a selection of digital services will be bundled together and offered for the new BMW X5 under the guise of the Connected Package Professional. The Connected Package Professional includes Remote Services, Concierge Services, On-street Parking Information, and Real Time Traffic Information and is standard on the all-new X5 for a duration of 4 years. Having this package on the vehicle will allow for easy integration and adaptation of new technology over time. Customers can continue to download various new digital services individually as they become available or renew existing services via the ConnectedDrive Store.


BMW Connected.

BMW Connected is the companion app for BMW drivers. Intelligent connectivity helps users to reach their destination easily and with minimal stress – and not only when in their vehicle; BMW Connected is an all-embracing concept designed to seamlessly connect the driver and their smartphone with their vehicle.

At the heart of it all is the Open Mobility Cloud, which allows the app to connect the vehicle with the customer’s digital devices. These could include the iiPhone and Apple Watch, smartphones and smartwatches running the Android operating system, Alexa-compatible smart devices and Google Home. For instance, the BMW Connected app can import appointments and addresses from the customer’s calendar entries straight into the navigation system to begin route guidance. The system calculates the optimum departure time based on real-time traffic information and notifies the driver with a message on their smartphone when it is time to leave. As the vehicle is linked up via the Open Mobility Cloud, it is able to access the calculated route directly when the navigation system starts up.


Remote Software Upgrade.

The Remote Software Upgrade feature keeps the vehicle up to date with the latest software. All updates can be loaded over the air, similar to smartphones. The upgrades can be loaded onto a smartphone via the BMW Connected app when connected to a domestic Wi-Fi network or imported directly via the BMW’s built-in SIM card, which happens automatically for important vehicle upgrades.


Controls

The raised seating position, driver-focused cockpit and new design and arrangement of the controls offer driver the best possible view to command the task of driving. The fully-digital instrument cluster and the center display are connected visually by consistency of design and share the same graphics. The center console hosts the iDrive Controller, the newly designed transmission lever and all other driving-related controls – i.e. the Driving Experience Control switch, the Start/stop button and the buttons to activate the air suspension settings and off-road modes (if equipped). If equipped with the optional glass controls, an exclusive crystal has been developed and added to the transmission lever, iDrive Controller, Start/stop button and volume button.


Lighting

New features designed to maximize the luxurious ambience of the all-new 2019 BMW X5 include a Panoramic glass roof with a 30 percent larger see through area than on the outgoing model, standard ambient lighting including a Welcome Light Carpet – which illuminates the entry area to the vehicle when the doors are unlocked or opened – and Dynamic Interior Light, which emits pulsating light signals in pre-defined situations: such as flashing lighting in the door if a door is opened while the engine is running or flashing lighting in the instrument console to alert to an incoming phone call.


Travel and Comfort System

In the rear seats, the X5 now includes a standard Travel and Comfort System. This includes 1 USB-C port on the back of each front seat, as well as a port to install a BMW Accessory like the Travel & Comfort System, Apple iPadTM Holder.


Comfort Access

The Comfort Access system has also been enhanced vs the outgoing generation. When equipped, the vehicle is able to sense the key from a few feet away, and can automatically unlock and lock without having to touch the door handle. Upon approach, once the car recognizes the key, the ambient lighting and light carpet will come on, welcoming and guiding the driver to the door. This is activatable in the iDrive menu.


Another great feature of Comfort Access is known as Smart Access. A spare keycard can be added to a vehicle when its equipped with Comfort Access, which will enable the driver not to carry the keyfob at all. Once paired, the keycard can be held up to NFC reader on the driver's door handle to unlock the car, and placed in the center console to start the engine.


Remote Engine Start, Trailer Hitch, Heated and Cooled Cupholders

The all-new BMW X5 can now be specified with remote engine start, ex-factory trailer hitch, and heated and cooled cup holders in the center console. Remote engine start can be operated through the Keyfob via a triple click on the lock button from the appropriate distance or via the BMW Connected App. When equipped with the ex-factory trailer hitch, the towing capacity is increased from 6,600 lbs to 7,200 lbs.


Split Tailgate

As well as increased levels of comfort and exclusivity, the all-new 2019 BMW X5 now offers enhanced functionality. It features a two-section tailgate for ease of loading. If the optional Comfort Access is specified, both sections can be opened and closed automatically and hands-free.

Just to confirm, is any of this is an auto-pilot feature. Does it keep your X5 in the lane, follow the car in-front of you, etc.. This just reads as a bunch jargon to me.

1) Please don't reply to the original post so it's not a nightmare to scroll through this thread.

2) this key card thing in the console sounds interesting and a little confusing. Interested what the keycard would look like making it better than carrying a key fob.

It will probably be like a credit card which you can just put in your wallet or whatever and then don't have to carry a bulky key around with you.

Makes sense. Plus it probably also won't have other features of the FOB such as opening the liftgate or panic alarm or "remote" lock/unlock.

Seems like a replacement for an emergency key so that you can always have it in your wallet.

Finally BMW is AHEAD in standard features with the X5 vs the competition. I wasn't too excited for the G05 thinking every damn thing would be an option but looks like pretty much everything I'd like to order besides DHP and M-sport are standard!

I don't think standardizing your vehicle and bringing it up to date (actually should have done this back in 2015) is copying Tesla. I really don't see the reference. These are features the i3 has had for a while.

The new system includes a driver attention camera and will allow for extended hands free driving so long as the driver is paying attention to the roads. It has been described to us as our version of Cadillac's Super cruise.

NH_F36 Regarding the factory installed trailer hitch, is it hidden in the rear bumper or underneath the rear bumper or is it exposed in the form of a gaping hole in the rear bumper?
