they better have a firmware update!!!!! the current integration is awful. i think it really needed this from the start to have a chance. no album art, no track number, no total time or time remaining, no adaptive scrolling... why is it so hard to control an iPod from your steering wheel?
Ford did a better job with SYNC, a Microsoft product. pwnd?
If you wish the iPod support in your BMW or Mini was a little less Munich and a little more Cupertino, this latest development from Bavaria will make you a happy little infotainment meister. BMW is announcing that its in-car iPod compatibility will be boosted to support iOS 4's iPod Out feature, which does not enhance your gadget's Ryan Seacrest impression but instead allows it to output its interface to another device. So, the in-car dash will replicate the simple iPod UI, which could be a good or a bad thing depending on whether you prefer Apple's design cues to BMW's. No word on exactly which vehicles will get this support, but this is referred to as part of a "new offer," so it certainly sounds like future autos only. C'mon guys, haven't you heard of a firmware update?
