BMW releases a tech monster

CNET Car Tech reviews the 2009 BMW 750Li.


BMW must hate us. The new 7-series came in with so much tech, we had to work long days to evaluate it all. Of course, a long day spent driving the 750Li over and around mountains wasn't exactly a painful experience. But then there was the time spent trying out the navigation system with its traffic avoidance feature, or activating night vision and seeing how the pedestrian detection works, not to mention trying out the lane departure warning, adaptive cruise control, parking system, side-view cameras, phone system, stereo, and the list goes on. Fortunately, this is a new update for the 7-series, so we won't have to work this hard until the next update.
