BMW is making it possible for driving enthusiasts to record and share their drives by embedded GoPro action cameras into its already-considerable infotainment system. The GoPro iPhone app will be used to connect the GoPro's hardware to the car's color display and iDrive controller. Drivers can mount the GoPro anywhere on the inside or exterior of their car and control it from the comfort of their driver's seat.

Drivers can turn the GoPro action camera on and off, start and stop recording, switch between video and photo modes and choose from a variety of camera modes. These include night-time driving, sport driving, winding road time lapse, straight road time lapse and more.

The car's display shows the camera's battery life, storage space and the status of its WiFi connection. Stats for Camera-Embedded Cars Trending: Older & Average
