As a ChargeNow member, you get all the benefits of joining the ChargePoint network, so you can easily charge your BMW eDrive or BMW i vehicle the next time you're out and about. Here's how it works:

1 ) Create a ChargeNow account and activate your cards. 

  • Sign up to create your ChargeNow account and request 2 complimentary cards (eDrive owners) or activate the ChargeNow cards included with your BMW i vehicle. 
  • Once your account is created and your cards are activated, you can easily access stations on the go whenever you’d like. 
  • You can also order new cards or manage your cards

2) Link a credit card to your ChargeNow account. 

  • If you need to access a paid station,  it is easy to sync your credit card when you create your ChargeNow account.
  • The first time you charge your car at a station that requires payment, a $10 deposit will be charged to your credit card.
  • Whenever a fee is required for charging, it will be deducted from your ChargeNow deposit balance.
  • When your deposit balance runs low, it will automatically be replenished by charging your credit card the equivalent amount of three month's average use or $10, whichever is greater.

3) Find a participating public charging station.

  • Download My BMW Remote app (BMW eDrive owners), or the BMW i Remote app to find available public charging stations, check their availability, and send their locations directly to your vehicle.
  • Use the onboard navigation via the BMW ConnectedDrive services, to find public stations from your BMW eDrive or BMW i vehicle.
  • You can also locate member stations using the ChargeNow online map, which displays which stations are in use, available or allow reservations.
  • Or, log in to the ChargePoint app with your ChargeNow account login information, to access your account via a mobile device.

4) Plug in and charge.

  • To charge at a participating public charging station, just tap your ChargeNow card over the reader symbol, press the handle button to remove the charging connector, and plug in.
  • After you've finished charging, tap your card to end the session, then unplug the connector and return it to the station. 
  • Alternatively, you can start a session with the ChargePoint app or by calling the customer support line on the station.

5 ) Track your charging activity.

  •  Once you log in to your Dashboard, visit My Stats to see how much gas and greenhouse emissions you've avoided, and track your energy use.
  • Or, go to My Account and Monthly Statement to review any paid station fees as well as deposits to your account balance.
