The app is your key for everything
After unlocking the car with a swipe in the DriveNow app, you simply need to open any door to the vehicle, so we can make sure that you are at the car. Then enter your PIN on your phone screen and start your rental immediately. Sounds good? It gets even better: After entering your PIN once, you will be asked if you want to set up Touch ID/Face ID or Fingerprint for future trips.
What are the advantages of Touch ID/Face ID or Fingerprint? You can save time by not needing to use the iDrive controller in the car, and you won't need to worry about forgetting your PIN.
How it works
1. Unlock the car with the app as usual.
2. Open any door.
3. Start your rental by entering your DriveNow PIN in the app. Store your PIN via Touch ID/Face ID or Fingerprint for future use.
4. Start the car simply by pushing the 'Start/Stop' button and drive off!
Good to know: The board computer is blank? Don't worry, you can start your trip anyway! Although the board computer has not turned on yet, the engine can be started after entering the correct PIN via the app. By the way, if you prefer to enter your PIN in the car, you can still do this. Just wait for the in-car screen to start and use the iDrive controller to enter your 4-digit code.
