Classic Silicon Valley - Kind of ...

Interesting post on Jalopnik stating that BMW has figured out why it makes sense to have owners be able to e-mail Google map co-ordinates to their vehicles that can then be imported into the car's GPS system. Finally. No more sitting there poking at buttons - while stationary, of course - trying to recreate something you already looked up before leaving home.

So why in the world isn't this being figured out by Ford and GM first? How much of an unfair advantage do you need? Mind you, take a look at the car park outside the Google campus and the answer probably becomes a bit clearer! Local BMW dealers here are very fancy operations.
