Being overly connected can sometimes be a bad thing.  There’s nothing quite like a friend, family member, or significant other who calls, leaves a voicemail, sends a text, sends an email, calls again, texts again, comes to look for you at work, calls an emergency contact, all while you’re sitting through fifteen minutes worth of previews before a two-and-a-half hour movie.

Relationships are about balance; staying in a reasonable amount of contact from a reasonable distance.  Now, BMW drivers can maintain their relationship with the world around them from behind the wheel with ConnectedDrive.
