I have this and it works fine in the towns, it stutters on the motorway (M3) as the mobile signal is not so great in a few sections. I do not use it very frequently, but it does work as advertised. Facebook & Twitter integration works really well- very neat implementation.

Yes, this is with the iPhone. I think the BMW apps only work with the iPhone at the moment...

Best way to get an idea of what is included is to download the iPhone app.

Twitter, Facebook, Wiki, News feeds, Internet Radio, Last Mile, Calendar, Eco Analyser are few of the current available features within the app.

Of course, all the features require a decent internet connection; but the integration with iDrive is quite good.

Is anyone else upset that HTC and Android are just not catered for at all by BMW, not even a snap-in?

Over 500 million HTC phones sold worldwide last year and no snap-in...

All the best,
Sam
