Add the NAV and the car will even know how to get there without you telling it.

I luv BMW, probably one of the best automobiles I have ever owned in my 30 plus yrs of driving. But some of the options or perks like my Descent Control have got to be wondered about.
I own a house in upstate NY that is on the top of a Mtn. My road drops an altitude of close to 220 feet in an 1/8th of a mile. In the winter Salt trucks actually back there way up the road so that salt is spread first so they get traction. I have yet once to remember I have the Decent Control option when going down in either summer or Winter.
