Research in Motion and BMW have been working on technology that essentially turns your BMW’s iDrive into a remote control of your BlackBerry. Using a new Bluetooth protocol called MAP, the BMW and BlackBerry can pair allowing iDrive to ingest all the contacts from the BlackBerry and sync email. Once paired, Drives can scan through and read headers of emails through their iDrive console (probably not the safest act while driving) and selected messages can read to the driver using iDrive’s text-to-voice transcription.
Sweet. Im gonna try it out later today. It better work.
