On most of the BMW with the new iDrive you can use a variation of Google search for finding a destination. The charge is part of the convenience package for the BMW equivalent of OnStar. The question to be asked - is it worth it? What you get is a slower connection to a not very smart Google - things have to be spelled correctly. There is no option like ... Did you mean to spell... The real benefit is to find places not in your navigation system.

Seriously? IS that only 650's? Are you saying you are connected to the internet for no charge?
It is a start to internet access. It is not there yet.
