Our Fleet Test Drive: BMW 520d - 11th Report
04 May 2011
Search connected drive
Launched a couple of years back, rivals are only now starting to catch up with BMW's Connected Drive, which allows access to RSS feeds and an array of news headlines through the media system, as well as letting you email addresses from your desk to the car's navigation.
The press of a button also links the car to a call centre, where you can ask for the address of Halfords, for example, to be sent to the car. Which is where the only problem I've experienced with the system emerges. Twice now I've been sent directly to a residential road near the destination, but not actually to the right place. Frustrating.
