BMW Wants You to Yelp and Drive

Yelp will be the first app available on BMW Online.

Testing and driving may not be legal but Yelping and driving is, right? At least BMW hopes so.

The San Francisco-based review site will be the first app available on BMW Online, which will allow drivers of the luxury car to connect to the Internet from their car.

Drivers will be able to select the Yelp app, along with others, that will allow them to search for nearby restaurants and stores.

To make things safer, reviews and ratings can be read-out-loud to drivers and search results can be organized by distance, ratings and more.

The service is available only to BMW drivers who subscribe to the  BMW Assist Convenience Plan and have on-board navigation system.
