Temporary real-time location sharing app Glympse announced today a partnership with BMW Group. After Ford and Mercedes, the U.S. start-up has signed up another automaker that adds to its availability on mobile platforms iOS, Android, Blackberry and Windows Mobile.

Glympse will be available through Apps, a paid option within Connected Drive that allow to display iOS apps on the dashboard. To access Glympse, BMW drivers will have to plug in their iPhone and the custom BMW optimized interface shows up on the in-car dash. Drivers can select their contact’s email, attendees of an upcoming calendar event, Facebook or Twitter and, with a touch of the controller, share their location from their car with whomever they choose for a set period of time, from minutes up to four hours.

Recipients can view the sender’s location on a dynamic map in real-time, either on a desktop or mobile web page. This partnership was announced at the New York International Auto Show along with the certification of three audio apps: Audible, Rhapsody and TuneIn.
