"BMW has been working on augmenting GPS navigation for some time now,
and it took another big step forward in recent weeks with the
announcement of its Pathfinder "microNavigation" system. As the name
suggests, that would supplement your basic navigation system with maps
and directions for areas not covered by GPS -- a parking lot, for
instance -- and it could be continually updated on an as-needed basis,
with users able to download so-called microMaps for a specific area
before they go on a trip."
