Google Maps teams up with BMW

If you’re the type who finds entering address details into a car’s sat-nav system frustrating, especially if you’re a heavy user that has to key in several destinations on a single day, a new system developed by BMW and Google Maps may a put an end to the stress. Instead of looking up an address online, writing it down onto a piece of paper, and then entering it into the sat-nav device, a new system will allow uses to send information directly from a computer.

Owners of BMWs equipped with Drive Assist can transfer any Google Maps Deutschland business details directly to their cars, and can either contact the business or set its address as a destination. Unfortunately, the system is limited to German listings only, but we’re sure that it’ll eventually lead to other markets. Here’s a quick video of the system in action.
