BMW-iPod adapter review
In his review, technology guru Walter Mossberg says " that will likely leave the iPod cult hungering for more. It's a decent first step, but that's all.... The adapter takes the form of a white iPod cable that protrudes from the inside wall of the glove compartment. You just plug in your iPod (it has to be a newer model that uses the so-called dock connector) and close the glove box door. From then on, you can control the device from the dashboard audio dials and buttons, or the audio control buttons on the steering wheel." The review notes that the system caused a few iPod freezes and other minor anomalies that were solved relatively easily.
