Finally, BMW and Google have made that most crucial of connections between our digital and IRL lives. And that's not just more dipshit tech-hype speak.

They can now send locations from Google Maps Deutchland right to their cars. Then they can use the address as their sat-nav destination, or call it from their car. It's part of Google's nascent "Send to Car" service, which is destined to blow up once more automakers and aftermarket suppliers get on board.
