Distance to query via voice

Has any one asked the car “how far to” in the voice control?
I have tried it and it says that London is 145 miles away when it’s actually 247. similarly Milton Keynes camels back as 115 when it is 225 miles away. But the car knows where it is on the screen maps.

Has no one had a chance to talk to their BMW yet and ask how far to?

Just tried it, 'how far to' a major US city comes back as 457 miles. 'Navigate to' the same city is 563 miles. Most likely 'how far to' is direct route (air miles), not road miles.

To be fair, BMW did make plane engines first...
