That is pretty interesting… I wonder what kind of OS/Browser they are going to use. Although since the BMW system is all ready able to talk to the iPod and now iPhone I don’t see why they just don’t allow it to use Safari and render it on the iDrive screen. If the browser is going to be implemented by the same people that did the iDrive then, really, what’s the point of doing it at all…. it’s going to un-usable.

BMW to offer in-car Internet access via iDrive in North America: “In what could be the best thing to happen to iDrive since its inception, BMW on Monday announced it will offer full-blown Internet access in its cars via the controversial interface in North America. Back in February, BMW announced this ability is coming to Europe as part of a ConnectedDrive option package.”
