\"iPod Your BMW\" details
Gizmodo has published new details of Apple and BMW's new '' campaign. "First of all, most BMWs on the road won't be able to use the BMW iPod connection kit. Not only does the kit only work with 2002 or later 3 Series, X3 SAVs, or Z4 Roadsters, any car with optional built-in Navigation system, cassette deck, satellite radio, or CD change won't be able to use it, presumably because of the lack of dash space for the digital readout and because the auxiliary audio wiring is already taken up [...] The iPod slips inside a dock in the glove box and controls are on the steering wheel, and they look to be pretty basic, with only an track up/track down selection and what looks to be a mute button." As for pricing, "our source has a lack of info on exact price, although dealership installation charges are being quoted at around $235 [...] Hopefully that includes the hardware."
