Partially but it really needs a cell signal to work well. Also, the maps are not local to the device, it needs a data connection. I think google maps does some caching once it's calculated a route...

I have the same complaint with the ZF8 in my 2014 528. The downshifting to 1st as you're coming to stop is annoying and unnecessary. It becomes very annoying in sopt and go traffic where the thing is...
