Yelping in the Ultimate Driving Machine

We are excited to share that beginning today, BMW will be enhancing their in-car infotainment system known as BMW Online, with Yelp. BMW made a recent update to BMW Online that allows them to add new features (aka, applications) and we’re proud to say that Yelp is one of the first to be integrated!

No matter where you are, you will no longer have to settle for the second best café or a mediocre rest stop, Yelp reviews will be right there within your reach to help guide you.

Here are a couple of screenshots of what it will look like:

This is currently available in the US only. BMW Online is available to Convenience Plan subscribers on BMW Assist with on-board Navigation system on the following models:

  • 2009 and later Z4, 1, 3 and 7 Series
  • 2010 and later 5 and 6 Series
  • 2010 and later X5 and X6
  • 2011 and later X3.

Now, who wants to let me borrow their 7 Series for the weekend so I can test this new feature out?

Hmm. OK. Well, in that case be sure to report back and let us know what you think of this integration!
