The introduction of BMW’s Precipitation Radar GPS system into their new German automobiles might make a Bimmer a road warrior’s next best friend. The on-board precipitation radar automatically updates the GPS console with real-time weather information every 15 minutes for both your current location and your destination.

According to Motor Authority, the BMW Precipitation Radar is meant to specifically benefit drivers of convertible cars and those who live in or are traveling to areas hit by hail storms.
