Official Release: Three quarters of a century have elapsed between the unveiling of the first in-car radio at the Berliner Funkausstellung (Berlin Radio Exhibition) in 1932 and the innovations from BMW ConnectedDrive now available to customers. Over the latter half of this period, in particular, rapid progress has been made in the networking of the car with the world outside and the traffic on the road – progress which can be credited to a large extent to the innovative power of BMW engineers. The world’s first on-board computer with outside temperature display in the 1980 BMW 7 Series and the factory-fit navigation system pre- sented by BMW in 1994 – the first of its kind from a European carmaker – have been just two of the many milestones along the way.
