New BMW gets Remote Parking
Apr 13, 2015

You can step out of your car and park it remotely in a tight space, controlling your car from a key fob that includes an LCD screen.

Another first in a luxury car is gesture control to operate the radio. The 7 Series uses a 3D sensor to detect hand movements so you can swipe the air to raise or lower volume or accept or reject incoming calls. Drivers will also get the option to pair a gesture with a specific function.

BMW is also promising a “new level of voice control,” in a teaser video on the new 7 Series.

The vehicle is also getting new driver assist features including lane departure warning with active side collision protection and rear collision prevention.

No specifics yet on pricing and delivery.

Car Tunes deserves a big round of applause for their services. I went into Car Tunes because I'd suddenly lost the whole right channel of my MINI's stereo. I walked in thinking I was due for a new set of speakers at the very least, but Mike helped me troubleshoot the issue. His experience & expertise helped me find the issue (a loose plug) and fix it right away. I then worked with Dave on the theoretical "what can I do to upgrade my system" question, and he was flat-out brilliant. He listened to my stock system and recommended a quick, simple upgrade of a slimline/shallow 10" subwoofer for the boot and an amp mounted under the seat. What's more, they had availability to do the install THAT DAY. In a few hours my car was out the door, and grinning from ear to ear. I typically don't make big purchases without research, but i had heard of Car Tunes' reputation ahead of time, and I was so comfortable with Mike and Dave that I bought on the spot. Dave suggested a setup that was very reasonable price-wise, but exceptional in quality and end result. I could not be happier! Car Tunes will be my first and only stop for future car audio needs, and a radar/laser detector when the time comes. Car Tunes is top-notch, from people to products.
