If we get the Combox Telematics with the SOS calls enabled, do you know if that would include the ability to send addresses via Google Maps to my BMW?
The SOS Assist and the Send to Car features are what I would miss the most about this upgrade.
Would it make sense to upgrade the maps before applying this upgrade? I would hate to pay all this money for the retrofit and then have the map upgrade reflash the iDrive to lose the new functionality.
