Google on the move
BMW is set to offer internet access in its cars before Christmas.

The system will allow users to connect to the web by using an internet-capable mobile phone. The car's iDrive display screen acting as the computer monitor, and the iDrive joystick operating as a mouse.

BMW said that the web connection will only work when the car is in "Park". The system will also allow the phone user to call numbers sourced from the internet.
