I hope they will upgrade the BMW connected app in-line with Mini Connected. Give customers choice and flexibility on how the car is connected to the outside world, and not lock them in to service contracts.
I saw that... I think that the clientele is different. BMW wants its customers to pony up $199 a year for Google Search (BMW Search).

That's the reason I'm coding BMW Live into my iDrive -RSS Feeds, Weather, Google Search, Panoramio, Street View. And now your Send-To-Car solution... I'm set.
