To use MyInfo, owners simply search online for a business or street address on Google Maps and then click the ‘Send’ button and choose a car. Once inside their car, the driver only has to push the MyInfo button within the BMW Assist menu and the desired destination and associated phone number will automatically load.
It essentially means drivers will no longer have to write down or print address information and manually enter them into the navigation system. It also allows up to ten different destinations to be added.
The service has already been launched in Europe and Canada and is now available on all 2009 model-year BMW Assist-equipped X5, X6, 1, 3, 5, 6 and 7 Series vehicles.
