Chrysler may end up being the first to market with an in-car internet solution, but BMW's ConnectedDrive, announced in advance of this year's Geneva Motor Show, is the first to bring us video of the system in action.

An interesting point covered in the videos is that the internet service is routed through BMW proxies - meaning both that no anti-virus or other protective measures are needed, and that all traffic on your annual subscription will be going through a BMW computer before being relayed to your car. BMW insists that surfing is not limited nor restricted in any way, however. Unlike Chrysler's system, BMW's ConnectedDrive does not require a separate mobile phone subscription.
