BMW 7 Series: Automatic climate control- Air conditioning

Concept

The air in the car's interior will be cooled and dehumidified and, depending on the temperature setting, warmed again.

The car's interior can only be cooled with the drive-ready state switched on.

Switching on/off

Press the button.


The LED is illuminated with air conditioning switched on.

Depending on the weather, the windshield and the side windows may fog up briefly when driveready state is switched on.

The cooling function is switched on automatically with the AUTO program.

When using the automatic climate control, condensation water develops and collects underneath the vehicle.

Maximum cooling

Concept

The system is set to the lowest temperature, optimum air flow and recirculated-air mode with the drive-ready state switched on.

General information

The function is available with external temperatures above approx. 32 ºF/0 ºC and with the drive-ready state switched on.

Switching on/off

Press the button.


The LED is illuminated with the system switched on.

Air flows out of the vents to the upper body region.

The vents need to be open for this.

Adjust air flow on the driver's side with the program active.

AUTO program

Concept

The AUTO program cools, ventilates or heats the car's interior automatically.

The air distribution and temperature are controlled automatically depending on the temperature in the car's interior and the desired temperature setting including the selected intensity of the air flow.

Switching on/off

Press the button.


The LED is illuminated with the AUTO program switched on.

Depending on the selected temperature, the intensity of the AUTO program, and outside influences, the air is directed to the windshield, side windows, upper body, and into the floor area.

The cooling function is switched on automatically with the AUTO program.

Point the side vents toward the side windows.

At the same time, a condensation sensor controls the program so as to prevent window condensation as much as possible.

The AUTO program is switched off automatically, when manual air distribution is set.

Intensity

With the AUTO program switched on, the intensity can be adjusted. This changes the automatic control for the air flow and air distribution.

Press the left or right side of
the button: to decrease or increase intensity.

The selected intensity is shown on the display of the automatic climate control.

Automatic recirculated-air control AUC

Concept

The automatic recirculated-air control AUC recognizes odors or pollutants in the outside air.

The outside air supply is shut off and the interior air is recirculated.

General information

If the system is activated, a sensor detects pollutants in the outside air and controls the shut-off automatically.

If the system is deactivated, outside air continuously flows into the car's interior.

With constant recirculated-air mode, the air quality in the car's interior deteriorates and window fogging increases.

Switching on/off

Via iDrive:

  1. "CAR"
  2.  "Settings"
  3.  "Climate control"
  4.  If necessary, "Air quality"
  5. "Auto-recirculate"

If there is window condensation, switch off recirculated- air mode or defog the windows.

Recirculated-air mode

Concept

You may react to unpleasant odors or pollutants in the immediate environment by temporarily suspending the supply of outside air. The system then recirculates the air flow within the vehicle.

Operation

Press the button:


The LED is illuminated when recirculated-air mode is switched on. The supply of outside air is shut off.

When recirculated-air mode is switched off, fresh air is directed into the vehicle's interior.

To prevent window fogging, recirculated-air mode switches off automatically after a certain amount of time, depending on the environmental conditions.

With constant recirculated-air mode, the air quality in the car's interior deteriorates and window fogging increases.

If there is window condensation, switch off recirculated- air mode or defog the windows.

Adjusting the air flow manually

Concept

The air flow for climate control can be adjusted manually.

General information

To adjust the air flow manually switch off AUTO program first.

Operation

Press the left or right side of
the button: to decrease or increase air flow.

The selected air flow is shown on the display of the automatic climate control.

The air flow of the automatic climate control may be reduced automatically to save battery power.

Adjusting the air distribution manually

Concept

The air distribution for climate control can be adjusted manually.

Operation

Press the button repeatedly to
select a program:

  • Windows, upper body region, and floor area.
  • Upper body region and floor area.
  • Floor area.
  • Windows and floor area.
  • Windows: driver's side only.
  • Windows and upper body.
  • Upper body region.

The selected air distribution is shown on the display of the automatic climate control.
