Hopefully BMW will have the technology soon to support/allow iDrive navigation OS upgrade and map updates Over the Air (OTA) or via satellite (remotely) for free. Similar to the Palm Pre that allows OTA software updates whereby the Apple iPhone requires iTunes download/install and plugin iPhone. Less trips to the dealership/service is much prefered, IMHO.
