I am busy developing a app for the iPhone, if all goes well I will be sending the code to BMW and Apple for testing within the next 2 weeks, something really nifty, been sworn to secrecy as to what it is about... As soon as it is available on the AppStore (free) is will post something on the forum.

Now that is really interesting - good for you Gerusarus! I'm really looking forward to seeing how you get on with this.

I have the snap in adapter and use it. I'd like the iDrive screen to show me the weather (I know I'm lazy).

Would be a nice feature.

" just recently left iPhone and went for the Samsung Galaxy S2. Feeling all smug thinking it was 'superior in every way' n all that but it's utter shite, not sure if it's the phone or the operating system but needless to say I'll be getting rid soon and going back to iPhone. Can't beat iPhone, no matter what all the phone snobbery says"

BMW owners:

Iphone: 69%
Other smart phones (probably windows and android): 31%
You think it is:-

should have bought the Samsung Galaxy s3

I just got the BMW apps installed yesterday and although it is nifty I am disappointed that when playing videos through the iPhone it is so small on the screen compared to when playing a DVD. I do not think this has to do with the BMW app but I had to vent as I spent a lot of money on this for such a tiny picture.

Are there people making new features for this product?

I like it because of Pandora and the other features it offers.

I just got this so it is new to me and I have tried the web radio part of BMW apps but how to I use Pandora? I have an account and the app but what do you do to use it in the car?

Does streaming auto use a lot of data?

I am not sure if you already got your question answered, but in any case, I wanted to let you know that it is possible to have iphone intergation in older vehicles as well. This can be done through Connected Drive retrofit. If you are still interested, please send me an email with your VIN to info@bimmerretrofit.com, and I will gladly help!

Thanks,

Kate.
