I really do not know what you are talking about.

Accords now have what BMW got at least 8 years ago:

- Bluetooth
- iPod video
- iPod Out
- text
- email
- hotspot
- weather
- Bloomberg
- Stocks
- Local gas prices
- Pandora
- Web Radio
- Stitcher
- Facebook
- Tweeter
- RSS news feeds
- Google Search
- Google Send to Car
- USB destination uploading
- Nuance voice recognition

Nobody has Siri yet in any OEM system. BMW seems to be one of the first -if not the first- with it in MY2014.

I was reading emails and text in my 2004 E46 M3 Nav screen... in 2004 with a Motorola CPT9000 cell phone.
