I can have access to the music on my iPhone (ie. use it as an iPod), but doing so turns on Airplane mode, so I can't receive calls or use bluetooth. If i manually turn Airplane mode off, I have to re-pair my iPhone with the car. This is very annoying and I refuse to go through this every time I get in the car. I am also told that it still won't allow me to have both functions (iPod and iPhone) available.
The cable simply does not have an authentication chip embedded, no need to worry. The message will go away on its own after +7 seconds or simply press "no".
No features are lost.
