BMW PathFinder “MicroMaps” Navigation System

Looking to augment the conventional GPS navigation system with additional information not covered by GPS – such as a parking lot? BMW has announced a new PathFinder micronavigation service that offers users microMaps to augment the turn-by-turn navigation details offered on the in-car navigation system.

The new system will allow users to download information about these microMaps before they start from a place. This information can be continually updated as you approach the place. Also, BMW PathFinder will allow users to seamlessly toggle between the in-car navigation system to the micronavigation service as and when needed.

So is it out on the stores yet? The PathFinder is still a prototype and expect a few months to pass before it becomes a reality. Stay tuned and we will let you know more information when it is available.
