BMW has teamed up with Google, the world’s most frequented internet portal, to offer a unique function on its cars. Now BMW cars specified with Bluetooth telephone preparation and satellite navigation will come as standard with a new advanced BMW ConnectedDrive system using Google to make route planning even easier.

Prior to any journey the driver of a new BMW can now log on to www.maps.google.co.uk from his PC, find their intended destination in advance and send it to their car.

The move means drivers save time on the road with the exact destination and contact details stored in the car for future use. The Google feature has been introduced at the same time as an innovative news feed function.

A BMW driver can have up to 10 differently sourced RSS news feeds sent to the car. An owner can also view the weather outlook via the car. The new-look BMW ConnectedDrive package is free of charge to owners for three years.
