BMW 3 Series G20 (2018-2024) Owners Manual / Personal settings / Driver profiles / Changing/canceling the recognition function

If another vehicle key or another digital key is to be assigned to a driver profile, the current assignment must be canceled first.

Via iDrive:

1. "CAR".

2. "Driver profiles".

3. Move the Controller to the right.

As an alternative for Steps 1 to 3, the profile image can be tapped in the top status bar.

4. "Driver recognition".

5. "with vehicle key"

or

"With Digital Key".

6. "Activate linkage"

If the vehicle and vehicle key will be handed over, e.g., for maintenance, the following steps must be carried out first:

  • Setting up PIN.
  • Canceling recognition using the vehicle key.
  • Switching to the guest profile.

The handed over vehicle key can then no longer be used to access the personal driver profile.

Selecting a driver profile

Depending on the recognition setting, the driver profile will be selected automatically.

If the guest profile is active, the driver profile will be selected on the Welcome screen or via iDrive: A PIN may have to be entered.

1. "CAR".

2. "Driver profiles".

As an alternative for Steps 1 and 2, the profile image can be tapped in the top status bar.

3. Select driver profile.

4. "OK".

All settings stored in the selected driver profile are automatically applied.

Switching synchronization with the ConnectedDrive account on/off

ConnectedDrive countries: The settings stored in the driver's profile are synchronized with the personal ConnectedDrive account. This means that it is possible to use the personal settings in other BMW vehicles with ConnectedDrive access as well, if this function is supported.

The synchronization with the ConnectedDrive account is enabled when a driver profile is created or via iDrive:

1. "CAR".

2. "Driver profiles".

3. Move the Controller to the right.

As an alternative for Steps 1 to 3, the profile image can be tapped in the top status bar.
