Anyway.. first I read it was going to be full browsing capabilities then just search then sounded like full. Maybe someone that has/gets new iDrive can tell us what it supports.

Update: shenard looks like you are correct USA will not get full browser, excerpt from recent review on new 7 series:
"The only AWOL option is the full Internet access available to Europeans. For now, liability concerns will keep Americans from posting chocolate-covered-baby photos on Facebook while at the wheel. But next year, BMW will roll out the first all-wheel-drive 7-Series in the model's five generations."
WHAT ??? shenard dared to order his NEW X6 without the NEW iDrive??? How dare he!!!

I don't know what's wrong with him

Anyway, the browsing function will be available in the near future but not in current or new iDrive systems (including the new iDrive in the new 7 series). Good thing is that it will only take a simple software update to get that function working
