BMW 8 Series Convertible 2022-2023 Driver profiles User Manual

Driver profiles

Principle
Driver profiles can be created to store personal vehicle settings. If the vehicle is used by multiple drivers, each driver can create his personal driver profile. When a driver profile is selected, the vehicle will automatically apply the stored settings in the driver profile.

General information
Three personal driver profiles can be created. In addition, a guest profile is available that can be selected by any driver. The guest profile is active when a personal driver profile has not been selected. Changes to the vehicle settings are automatically stored in the active driver profile or in the guest profile.
The vehicle can already adjust to the driver when it is unlocked. For this purpose, the recognition via a vehicle key or a digital key must be as‐signed to a driver profile. Connected Drive countries: The settings stored in the driver’s profile can be synchronized with the personal BMW Connected Drive account. It is thereby possible to use these settings in other BMW vehicles as well.

Functional requirements
When a driver profile is created, switched or deleted, the vehicle must move at a maximum of walking speed.
