Another reminder

This is just another sad reminder that they have moved the volume and phone controls to the WRONG side of the steering wheel on newer models.

Apple products always look pretty and sounds fancy but do nothing special and just handcuff you. BMW needs to work on better android integration, have an app on the market that does all those features, android and maybe even ios users can install it and then they do not rely on apple. Nuance makes siri, already works with BMW and could easily integrate siri like functionality into idrive. Easy

Garage List
2011 BMW 335d  [4.83]
This is all very exciting but before anyone gets too excited consider that this integration may very well require the following:
1. 2014 MY BMW
2. Premium Package
3. Technology Package
4. Siri Package
5. $250 snap-in adapter

It may end up being cheaper to hire a personal assistant named Siri to ride along with you everywhere you go. I am hoping this is not the case

Now not only will you have another women's voice telling you directions, but they will compete. Siri yelling at your through the stereo, your wife yelling over her....kids crying in the back seat...then mommy and daddy fighting...and you wreck an M3 in Jamaica!

Apple! Think of the children!

I have it similar with my e46 330ci, I hold the 'talking head' button and it activates Siri through my phone and then through my bluetooth on my stock sound system

I do however have an aftermarket bluetooth module that replaces the 6 stacker

So if I don't have an iPhone, that is a useless button in my car? :-/

This wouldn't make me buy an iPhone ever.

I have an iphone 4S, I love the phone but I NEVER use Siri. It was cool at the beginning as a novelty, but I even forget it (she?) is there. I also have a navigation system in my car and I never use it either. I use my iphone if I need directions to get somewhere.

As much as I love technology and its ability to make life easier and more efficient every day, I don't want my next car to be a smartphone on wheels. I don't want it to have internet access, I don't want it to talk back to me (or even worse understand me!), or be able to do anything else than provide an outstanding analog driving experience. I want it with a real manual transmission, a real clutch, hydraulic steering (the less assisted the better), and with the least amount of gizmos that distract me from the driving experience, and more importantly, every other thing on the road!!

I know I'm part of a very small minority, but I hope car manufacturers at least give us the option of choosing if you want all those things or not, instead of forcing us to have an iPad sticking out of the dash (even without navi) like on the F30.

Wishful thinking I know...

Bmw didn't pick Apple product because its crap. Obviously they did a research before choosing it. All those Apple hater, you don't have to order this option or use this option. Try not to make no sense of not driving a BMW because of this reason. Its still a great car!

LOL - Just use one and see if the phone doesn't do it on its own.

This would be awesome if Siri ever worked properly. 9 times out of 10 she responds with "I am really sorry about this. I cannot take any requests right now." And I know I could blame it on my network, but this happens when I have 3G with full bars. I absolutely love my iPhone and Apple products. But Siri needs to get her life together.

I don't think you will say Siri. I think that will be too... Idk. I just don't think that's how it will work. I think it will work much like the apple headphones. If you hold the headphones button for 2-3sec then Siri pops up. So maybe if u tap the button your get the BMW voice. But if u hold the button u get Siri. Doesn't that make since?

+1 I feel this didn't happen on earlier apple products. Too much of a rush to keep the 100billion growing.

I see few here already have set up Siri to work in BMW and also I have integrated Siri in my BMW. Question now is should BMW at least thank us for using our idea for their future profit.

I don't think that's the case. I initially thought so as well, but building Siri directly into cars without the purchase of an Apple product would be a pretty radical departure for Apple. There was no hint of Apple *branding* in this announcement (nothing about an Apple logo on the trunk next to the propeller or the Chevy cross, and nothing along the lines of an "i750i", etc).

Also, Cook used the words "integrate better", which suggests that he's just talking about improvements along the lines of changes in the existing BMW Apps software, and similar software from the other makers that integrates with iOS when connected to an iPhone/iPad.

With regard to all the Android angst in this thread, I expect you'll start to see some love from the various manufacturers over the next 12-18 months. In fact I also expect to see Windows Phone integration eventually as well (though certainly not before Windows 8 comes out). Right now WinPhone is a total joke (in terms of market share), but there is some smart money on WinPhone trending towards legitimate market share in 2013/2014.

There's no up side to a manufacturer restricting its customers to Apple products without any kind of monetary incentive from Apple, and the only reason we've had virtual iExclusivity thus far is that the luxury brands like to be out in front with tech options. With even cheap cars getting basic integration now, and the luxury makers wanting to push forward even further, broader integration options are an obvious direction to go.
