In this video, BMW How-To shows you how with Comfort Access and Smart opener, both the upper and lower tailgate of your BMW X5 or BMW X7 can be operated automatically.
While carrying the remote control with you, the tailgate can be opened and closed without touching a buttton. When standing directly behind your BMW, two sensors detect a kicking foot movement and the tailgate is opened. When pressing the button on the inside of the upper tailgate, both tailgates will close automatically. When pressing the ‘lock’ button on the inside of the upper tailgate, both tailgates close and the vehicle is locked after the tailgate has been closed. To lock, the driver’s door must be closed and the remote control must be outside the vehicle near the tailgate.
When pressing the button on the lower tailgate, the lower tailgate opens or closes. With Smart opener, the tailgate can also be closed with the same kicking movement. You can personalize Smart Opener operations in the vehicle menu. You can select if you want to only open the upper tailgate or both tailgates when using Smart opener or the interior tailgate button in your BMW.
