The German car maker has just made deals with Audible, Glympse, Rhapsody and TuneIn to bring their content directly into BMW Apps-enabed vehicles and let the car's console control the apps running on iPhones.
The deals mean audiobooks, streaming music and Net radio will be much easier--and presumably safer--to use in compatible cars, and adds Glympse's location sharing powers to the mix. Glympse was recently added to Ford's Sync app integration system.
Digital-connected cars are a fast-growing market. Companies like Apple are patenting well ahead of introducing new tech to the market.
