BMW Group now features weather data provided by The Weather Company within their Connected Drive systems in vehicles across North America. This collaboration provides drivers with deeper insight on weather conditions to help them make informed decisions on how to get from one place to the next safely and efficiently.
Onboard weather information has been available in BMW vehicles for over five years; however, since October of 2016, most navigation-equipped BMW vehicles across North America include weather information provided by The Weather Company’s consumer brand, The Weather Channel. This information includes current conditions, daily weather overviews and five-day forecast information, as well as a weather widget displaying forecasted high and low temperatures for the current day and next three days.
Leveraging its robust IoT platform as well as weather data from national meteorological agencies, and over 800 other data sources, The Weather Company generates hyperlocal forecasts for 2.2 billion locations every 15 minutes, bringing an unparalleled level of weather data and providing drivers with the most relevant and reliable weather information possible.
