WHAT IS ADVANCED REAL TIME TRAFFIC INFORMATION?
Precise information on the current traffic situation: with Advanced Real Time Traffic Information (ARTTI) you have the traffic in view. Rush hour, roadworks or holiday tailback – no matter how busy things are – your BMW knows the fastest route and makes sure you arrive relaxed. Spend your valuable time where your heart takes you, travel safe and be with your family, friends or simply at a favourite spot.
In 2011, BMW AG announced a further expansion of ConnectedDrive services through a press release. The press release gave the impression that new ConnectedDrive services such as RTTI would also be available for already delivered BMWs at no additional cost.
Nothing turned out to be less true and with many BMW drivers there was huge disappointment about the attitude of BMW AG about not activating RTTI for BMWs that had already left the showroom.
BMW AG did not want to cooperate in any way to make RTTI available as retrofit and used excuses that did not turn out to be correct. Where BMW AG is acting very customer unfriendly and acting very limited, we're exploring options and providing solutions within the boundaries of possibilities. Road safety is an important aspect of social responsibility where only the very best is good enough.
BMW AG isn't handling developments very well
BMW AG doesn't show any commitment regarding BMWs which have been delivered to customers regarding new developments of ConnectedDrive. However older BMW's can use some of newer ConnectedDrive services, the manufactoring date of the car is a rigid date for BMW regarding offering ConnectedDrive services. BMW is very passive regarding the cellular network transition. Upgrading telematics modules, so new cellular network technologies are supported, is very simple. But BMW actively chooses to dissapoint BMW owners by blocking technology upgrades.
Huge research effort
Because no information is available about the activation of RTTI by BMW AG, a great deal of research was needed. But now that we have succeeded in releasing RTTI for BMWs which have no interest of BMW AG, we have decided to share this with other interested parties to increase road safety.
The solution that is offered enables RTTI in exactly the same way as is done by BMW AG. The BMW is therefore in all respects still original after RTTI has been activated with this solution.
For every BMW owner
After developing the solution to enable RTTI on BMW's with the necessary options, we have come up with a solution so that the activation can be done by every BMW owner. Free of any risk.
Last but not least
We are not affiliated with BMW AG in any form, but BMW enthusiasts who want to get the most out of their BMW and would like to share this with other BMW enthusiasts to make more journeys as safe as possible.
