Compatible models

The BMW Motorrad ConnectedRide Cradle is suitable for all vehicles featuring special equipment 272 (navigation preparation) or the option of retrofitting the navigation preparation. The cradle is not compatible with the Navigator’s 4-button Mount Cradle.

Compatible smartphones

As a rule, all smartphones within at minimum 130.1 x 65.5 x 6.9 mm and at maximum 162.5 x 78.1 x 8.8 mm are compatible.

Additional information
  • You need a Bluetooth Low Energy connection to control the app with the Multi-Controller on the motorcycle’s handlebars. Use the Connectivity Hub within the BMW Motorrad Connected app for pairing. The app is only required during initial setup. On the next journey, devices will automatically connect when they are switched on.
  • Depending on the smartphone design, it may be necessary to remove the case to ensure that your smartphone is securely fastened in the BMW Motorrad ConnectedRide Cradle.
  • As a minimum requirement, smartphones must feature Bluetooth Low Energy version 4.2 to meet the security requirements (LE Secure Connections) for a connection. Smartphones with older Bluetooth versions are therefore not supported.

Ready to start at any time

The BMW Motorrad Connected app will support you in the initial setup when using the BMW Motorrad ConnectedRide Cradle for the first time. Our other how-to videos on YouTube demonstrate the interaction between TFT display, Multi-Controller, cradle and app.
