BMW vehicles are known for being well-equipped with innovative features designed to take your Pekin commute to the next level. One of the many advanced amenities found in the BMW lineup is Gesture Control. What is Gesture Control and how does Gesture Control work? This system, which allows you to control various functions of the vehicle by simply using hand gestures, is available on select models. BMW of Peoria explores this feature in depth below.



How Does Gesture Control Work?

With the help of 3D technology, you can access different functions of your BMW vehicle without having to take your attention off of the road. For example, you can accept or decline a phone call, change the volume of your favorite tunes, or engage the navigation system. All of this can be done safely without having to divert your attention away from the road ahead in Dunlap. Here’s how it works:

  • Turn the Volume Up – Circle your finger in a clockwise direction.
  • Turn the Volume Down – Circle your finger in a counter-clockwise direction.
  • Accept a Call – Point to the BMW iDrive touchscreen.
  • Reject a Call – Swipe your hand to the right.
  • Select Navigation/Custom Setting – Use two fingers to point to the touchscreen.
  • Change Rearview Camera Angle – Draw a circle using your forefinger and thumb.
