Germans send data straight from Google Maps to BMWs

Navigation systems have revolutionized the way we get from A to B — a huge step up from crusty fold-out maps and a “good sense of direction.” It’s going to get even better now that Google Maps and BMW have joined forces to streamline the data entry process. Instead of printing out or writing down an address to re-enter in the car, the information is sent directly from your computer to your navigation system. German drivers with Drive Assist-equipped BMWs can send any Google Maps Deutschland business listing straight to their cars, either to contact the business once inside, or to set it as a destination. Honestly, it’s about friggin’ time online maps and automakers made this connection, and we’re glad that Google appears ready and eager to expand this service.
