Navigation systems of all shapes and sizes are built to look ahead. That's how they're able to help drivers navigate from location A to location B. Of course, this is nothing new for savvy automotive enthusiasts. What is new is the BMW ActiveHybrid 3 navigation system. Unlike others, this bit of technology actually thinks ahead too.
Now, BMW of Atlantic City knows what you're wondering. How can a program think? Well, in the case of the upcoming BMW hybrid, the navigation technology has the ability to detect obstacles along your route and recognize how they might affect your car.
For example, imagine you're on your way to work and there's a hill coming up. The BMW ActiveHybrid 3 navigation can identify the hill and recognize that descending will provide an opportunity to recharge its battery. In order to maximize hybrid capabilities, the vehicle will then drain more of the battery on the way up thereby saving gas and prepping to re-charge.
Now if that isn't an example of autos getting smarter, BMW of Atlantic City doesn't know what is. Due out sometime this fall, the ActiveHybrid 3 will be the first BMW 3 Series to get an innovative gas-electric powertrain.
