BMW 5 Series 2016-2022 Owners Manual: Driver profiles

Concept

In the driver profiles, individual settings for several drivers can be stored and called up again when required.

General information

There are three driver profiles with which personal vehicle settings can be stored. Every vehicle key has been assigned one of these driver profiles.

If the vehicle is unlocked using a vehicle key, the assigned personal driver profile will be activated.

All settings stored in the driver profile are automatically applied.

If several drivers use their own vehicle keys, the vehicle will apply the personal settings as it is being unlocked. These settings are also restored, if the vehicle has been used in the meantime by a person with a different vehicle key.

Changes to the settings are automatically stored in the driver profile currently activated.

If another driver profile is selected via iDrive, the settings stored in it will be applied automatically.

The new driver profile is assigned to the vehicle key that is currently in use.

There is an additional guest profile available that is not assigned to any vehicle key. It can be used to apply settings in the vehicle without changing the personal driver profiles.

Functional requirements

For the system to be able to identify the driver profile associated to a particular driver, the detected vehicle key must be clearly allocated to the driver.

This is the case when:

Active driver profile

After switching on the Control Display, the name of the active driver profile is displayed.

Select driver profile.

As soon as the engine is started or any key is pressed, the last selected display is shown on the Control Display.

To exit the welcome screen via iDrive: "OK".

Adjusting

The settings for the following systems and functions are stored in the active driver profile. The scope of storable settings depends on country and equipment.
