Bayerische Motoren Werke AG (BMW) will start implementing the Android Auto system that allows easy access to navigation and media apps in July 2020, the company announced on Wednesday. A new wireless feature will be integrated on all BMW vehicles equipped with the 7.0 software version, preventing driver's attention from being distracted by using smartphones.

"Many of our customers have pointed out the importance to them of having Android Auto inside a BMW for using a number of familiar Android smartphone features safely without being distracted from the road, in addition to BMW’s own functions and services. We will offer this service to our customers starting in July 2020," BMW's senior vice president product manager Peter Henrich stated.

The German carmaker is expected to present its latest feature in January at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas.
