Bear in mind though thats just a standard 3.5mm audio input jack, allowing you to route any audio you want into the BMW system from a external audio source, such as a ipod. It does not control the ipod in anyway.

If you want full control of your ipod, with track information on the i-drive screen, you must choose option 6FL, the USB-iPod interface.
