BMW and MINI To Share Locations Through New App

Following today’s trends, BMW and MINI will benefit from a new app to let drivers share their location with contacts and on social networks.

The free Glympse app will offer owners simple ways to show friends their location, which way they’re heading and also an approximate time of arrival. The app can send these pieces of information to some contacts in the address book or post them on Facebook or Twitter automatically, leaving the driver to concentrate on the road.

Another option will be that if you have scheduled a meeting on your calendar and you are running late, Glympse will automatically notify people on the attendee list, letting them know when you’ll be there.

The app will be integrated with models that feature BMW Apps and MINI Connected Drivers, to be introduced later this spring.
