Continued Connectivity For The BMW
The 2013 Consumer Electronics Show took place over the past couple of days in Las Vegas and there was a set of bells and whistles showcased which will be included in upcoming BMW’s and, built by Harman Electronics, it is the enhanced infotainment system for the 3 Series, 5 Series, and the 7 Series.
The highlights of the new system is a GPS layout which allows you a bids-eye view of your map and your trip, enhanced by 3D graphics for buildings and structures. Latest updated weather information you can also receive from the system which is also enhanced through high-end graphics.
One of the other items of particular interest, and we will continue research how this facet of the system works, as it is definitely cool is, through touch technology, this new system allows you access Facebook, texts, voice-mails, as well as short e-mails. That might be a first and it all falls in line with BMW making sure their owners remain connected which we have certainly written about and discussed here.
