Like most auto manufacturers, BMW unveils its big technological advances on its flagship cars. Here's the best of the brand-new gadgetry you'll find on the fifth-generation 7 Series, the 750i, which starts at $84,000 and makes its debut this month. Ian Daly


Active Blind-Spot Detection: The steering wheel vibrates if your blinker's on but it's not safe to change lanes.

Black Panel Instrument Display: When the engine is off, the gauges are hidden so that only the needles, scale markings, and chrome rings are visible.

Driving Dynamics Control: You can choose among four ride settings to alter the steering, suspension, transmission, and throttle response as easily as you change radio stations.

Updated Navigation System: The high-resolution monitor renders points of interest in near-photographic quality using Google Maps.

Pedestrian Detection: A warning symbol flashes to alert you to potential collisions with people in the street.
