Learn in this video how to use the optional BMW Drive Recorder to save up to 10 short video recordings of the vehicle environment in order to document for example traffic conditions or an accident.

It is available in vehicles with BMW Operating System 7 produced from July ’19 with the optional equipment BMW Drive Recorder and the Surround View cameras from the optional equipment Parking Assistant Plus.

Find the BMW Drive Recorder by going to “APPS”, “Installed apps”, “Drive Recorder”. To activate the BMW Drive Recorder for the first time, you have to accept the Legal disclaimer. When selecting “Settings” you will also find a setup assistant that you can access anytime. Please check the box “Recording allowed” to enable the Drive Recorder. Select the recording length before the trigger with a maximum of 20 seconds, the same can be done for “After trigger”. At “Camera selection” you can select your preferred cameras used for recording. Select the preferred “Recording Type”. Manually means you can start the recording in the app, with the Widget on your Home Screen or by long pressing the Panorama View button. Automatically means that the recording starts automatically if the vehicle sensors detect an accident situation. In the BMW Drive Recorder app click on ‘Saved recordings’ to find your recordings with additional information on date and time and with a preview of your recorded situation. Saved videos can be played, exported and deleted. Depending on your country, exported videos also contain additional data of your recording, like position and velocity. For your own safety, the recording is only shown on the Central Information Display when the vehicle is moving slower than 5 km/h.
