  • Updates to BMW Online include a new user interface and a simpler format.
  • Customers who subscribe to the system will receive the updates immediately.
  • BMW Online provides drivers with stock quotes, news and weather updates and Google Local Search capabilities.

BMW drivers using the automaker's helpful BMW Online system can already search for cheap gas, browse stock quotes and check the weather while on the go. And now, the system is even easier to use, thanks to a series of recent revisions capable of being added to 2009 or later models.

While the revisions to BMW Online don't offer any new functions, the automaker says the most important update is a more efficient user interface. According to BMW, that includes bundling several different services into an "Applications" menu, which can be personalized by the user and further updated by BMW as new items become available.

According to BMW, the updated system also displays a simpler format and a cleaner look. While the system's general appearance remains similar to the previous version, BMW says detail changes include a new scroll function that makes it easier to find the desired menu item without becoming distracted from driving. Information is also displayed in a more intuitive manner, further limiting the time a driver's eyes must be diverted from the road.

BMW says customers who subscribe to BMW Online, only offered with the automaker's BMW Assist Convenience Plan, will receive the update immediately. The system is only available on 2009 and later Z4, 1 Series, 3 Series and 7 Series models; 2010 and later 5 Series, 6 Series, X5 and X6 models; and X3 models from 2011 and later.

BMW Online provides drivers with a host of convenient information from stock quotes to news and weather updates. The system even includes Google Local Search, which allows drivers to search for local businesses, then set the address in their navigation system or call the business through their Bluetooth-connected phone. BMW also touts the system's up-to-date fuel price information and a "Send to Mail" feature, which allows drivers to e-mail their car's location and destination to any e-mail address.

What it means to you:

Thanks to the impressive BMW Online system, it's now even easier for late model BMW owners to get news, stock quotes and other information on the go.
