BMW 3: Creating a driver profile

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.

4. "Add driver profile".

ConnectedDrive countries: An existing ConnectedDrive account must be assigned to a driver profile. If a ConnectedDrive account has not yet been created, the account can be created via a smartphone. A QR code will be displayed on the Control Display for this purpose. The creation of the driver profile can continue with the access data of the created ConnectedDrive account.

Selecting recognition

The settings for the recognition are entered 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. Select the desired setting:

  • "with vehicle key".

    The vehicle key that is recognized in the car's interior is assigned to the driver profile.

    If multiple vehicle keys are detected, the unintended vehicle keys must be removed from the car's interior.

  • "With Digital Key".

    The digital key that is recognized in the car's interior is assigned to the driver profile.

    If multiple digital keys are detected, the unintended digital keys must be removed from the car's interior.

6. "Activate linkage"

As soon as the vehicle detects the vehicle key or the digital key, the corresponding driver profile will be activated. If the vehicle key or the smartphone with the digital key is not carried with you or the vehicle key or digital key is not recognized, the driver profile can only be selected on the Welcome screen when a PIN has been set up.

Setting up a PIN

A driver profile with recognition cannot be activated without vehicle key and without digital key.

In this case, a PIN can be set up to activate the driver profile.

Non-ConnectedDrive countries: If a PIN was not set up or the PIN is not known, the driver's profile cannot be activated.

ConnectedDrive countries: If a PIN was not set up or the PIN is not known, the driver's profile can be activated with the access data of the corresponding ConnectedDrive account.

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.
