With the recent update to BMW Online’s layout, the company can seamlessly add new applications as they become available.

Despite the claim of more distractions in the car, the increase of electronic data available to the average driver is climbing at a phenomenal rate. Take, for example, BMW’s announcement that users of its Online service in the US can now access the web-based Yelp rating system from their vehicles.

With Yelp on-board, customers can search for everything from the best local restaurants and boutiques to parking garages and banks. They are able to see ratings for those businesses, while hearing reviews read to them via the vehicle’s text-to-speech feature.

With the recent update to BMW Online’s layout, the company can seamlessly add new applications as they become available. Yelp is the first such application and there will be more to follow.

Customers who subscribe to the optional BMW Assist Convenience Plan and have a navigation-equipped vehicle capable of receiving the BMW Online service will be able to add the service today, without having to make any changes to their vehicle.

Yelp reviews can be accessed through the new Applications screen that is part of BMW Online with the update that took place earlier this month.

BMW Online is one of the many ConnectedDrive services available to BMW customers. BMW ConnectedDrive combines various elements from online applications, driver assistance, call center services and solutions for the integration of mobile devices. As a result, BMW customers are provided with an exceptional form of mobility, with more safety, more convenience, and more infotainment.
