BMW integrates parking payment via infotainment system

In BMW vehicles with BMW Operating System 7 and 8, a new service for convenient payment processing of parking fees is now available in Germany and Austria. Other European countries will follow.

With the parking payments function, upon arrival in a parking zone, the vehicle automatically detects whether the service is available and displays the payment function if the parking zone is recorded by one of the connected providers.

If billing is possible to the minute in the parking zone, the parking period is automatically terminated as soon as the customer leaves the parking lot. The function is also integrated into the My BMW app. In the “Services & Store” tab, customers can end and renew active bookings, view the parking history and manage their payment methods.

After the start in Germany and Austria, the function will be rolled out in other European countries from 2023. BMW has opted for a gradual rollout of the function.
