New Google Maps feature - send destination details to my BMW

Over on Google's Official Blog they've announced new feature to integrate Google Maps to BMW Assist.

On YouTube they've put together a video that shows someone reading looking up an address on Google maps and then emailing that to their BMW and then BMW 'accepting' it as a destination in the car satellite navigation system. How cool is that?

Here's the links to the YouTube video showing this feature, and the German video as well.

Interesting to see how technologies are starting to converge and Google's extending its influence to other areas. Pity my Nissan satnav doesn't do this.
