BMW Owners Can Google Any Time

images-16.jpgMotorists who own a 2009 BMW in the U.S. are going to be able to access in-car Google, which is already available in Europe.  This service will provide integrated Google maps that will allow the driver or passengers to search for movie theaters, restaurants, and other businesses.  Of course, the thought of this kind of distraction already has people fearing that accidents and roadside assistance calls will be at an all time high, but we will assume that BMW drivers will act responsibly.

Once the driver locates an address or business, the system will access directions from the vehicle’s navigation system.  And, you can even make phone calls to a business via Bluetooth.  Other features include BMW Assist, which will send an emergency vehicle in the case of an accident or track your vehicle if it’s stolen.

And, how much will this luxury cost you?  At $199 yearly, we drivers who are thrifty might just Google a location before leaving the house.  However, in a BMW in-car Google actually may be one of the least expensive options on the price sheets.
