Glympse, the mobile app available on iOS, Android, Windows Phone, Blackberry, that provides location sharing with anyone for a specified period of time. Glympse just signed a partnership with BMW Group, which will see it provide mobile location sharing for drivers with BMW Apps-ready vehicles and MINI Connected. Glympse already had similar integration with Ford company via Ford Sync.
Once connected the iPhone with Glympse app installed, iOS is the only platform that MINI supports for now. User can have the ability via the large center console display to update friends and family with their whereabouts right from their car. With this integration, both companies promise sharing the location for a period up to 4 hours from your car as easy as changing the radio station.
BMW group already approved apps including Audible, Rhapsody, and TuneIn for car info-entertainment integration.
