Joy is measurable. You drive. The BMW M Power Meter measures.
Using integrated movement sensors, your iPhone, iPod Touch or Apple Watch can record the performance data of your driving. And because the last results are saved, you are able to compare your performance with your friends and their vehicles.
This is how it works: You need to position your device in your vehicle as described below and start the App. Select your preferred mode: continual monitoring or acceleration to a specific speed or over a specified distance. The following data can be displayed in real time:
− Acceleration (G-force)
− Speed (mph / km/h)
− Lateral acceleration (Lateral G)
Measurement begins as soon as you activate the ""Start measurement"" button.
− The vehicle must be stationary to start recording the measurements
− The measurements should be recorded on a level road without steep inclines
− The device should either be upright or laid flat facing the exact direction you are driving in to ensure the measurements are accurate
− Once the device is in place, accept the conditions screen by pressing ""Accept"" and then begin measurement by pressing ""Start measurement""
− After measurement has begun, accelerate until you have reached the target speed or until you have covered the specified distance
One last piece of important information:
Please always give first priority to your safety and to that of others on the road. Only by adhering to the speed limits and driving carefully and responsibly can one truly enjoy measurable driving pleasure to its full extent.
