The BMW 7 Series recently earned a spot on the inaugural Wards 10 Best User Experiences list because of the many upgraded features it offers and how it's capable of performing both mundane & extraordinary tasks.
The judges at WardsAuto looked at the following aspects of the vehicle when creating this list:
- Ease of using the controls & connecting your phone
- Reliability of driver-assistance systems
- Quality of interior materials
You can control the features of your 2017 BMW 7 Series sedan with either the iDrive controller, voice commands, the touchscreen or BMW Gesture Control that lets you do hand movements for performing certain functions like answer & rejecting calls, turning the volume up & down and changing the multi-camera angle.
Features You’ll Enjoy Using in the 2017 BMW 7 Series
It might look like an iPhone in the picture and feel like one when you hold it, but there’s an available key fob for the 2017 BMW 7 Series that does more than just open your doors & trunk. When swiping the display screen (yes, the key fob has a touchscreen), you can choose to:
- Turn on the heat or AC Check how much gas you have
- Roll the windows down or up
- Switch the lights on or off
- Retrieve the car from a parking space
All of this makes a good first impression, especially if you’re driving during Central New Jersey’s cold winters and hot summers.
Touch Command Tablet
Backseat passengers (and those pesky backseat drivers) can have control of the 2017 BMW 7 Series at their fingertips if they use the 7” Touch Command tablet, located in the 2nd-row center console. Thanks to the WiFi hotspot capability, you’ll be able to:
- Play external audio & video files
- Surf the internet
- Become a game console
- Control comfort features of the reclining rear seats
Any selection you make on the Touch Command tablet can go right onto one of the 10” rear seat entertainment system screens to make the user experience even better.
BMW Connected App
You’ll love the BMW Connected App if you’re looking to bring more to your car and for it to provide more to you. Through the app, you can look up information like the amount of fuel left in the rank, the driving range your 7 Series currently has, the mileage and the vehicle’s current location.
The BMW Connected App also allows you to download other 3rd-party apps into the car such as Telekom Smart Home, Amazon Music, TuneIn, Glympse and GoPro. As the app’s name says, you’ll be truly connected to your BMW.
Other BMW 7 Series features that WardsAuto touted about when judging the 10 Best User Experiences award include:
- 1,400-watt Bowers & Wilkins Diamond surround sound system that can stream your favorite songs wirelessly with studio-quality audio
- Adaptive cruise control & lane keeping system to help prevent collisions and a warning system to keep your hands on the wheel
- Lounge-like lighting between the kidney-grill-designed puddle lights and amber, blue or white ambient lighting from the sunroof shades, door panels & speakers
