Thats awesome but does it take up too much room even if you wanted to put an ipod in there?

Actually, I think this BMW accessory sucks. It would have being far better if the accessory integrated in with 6FL ... but it doesn't. So all it offers it charging the iphone (which 6FL does anyway), and allowing you to use the BMW Shark fin for Telephone reception.

When you connect the iPhone with this cradle, does it play music from it as well?

Better this situation than the reverse

Colleague of mine has an iPhone .. got it from his neighbour who hacked it to work on Optus (I think). Everytime I have tried to phone him on it, he has been out of service, and everytime he has shown the thing off to others at work, the battery has run flat.

Nice but will it fit if the iPhone is in a case? I've got the case by Contour. If it would fit, I'd buy it.

iPhone for phone and music

I doubt it. Provides charging and external antenna coneection. The iPhone does not have stereo Buetooth.

That's my question--if you want to use it for both phone and music, what's the best setup?

I have both cradle and y-cable: When its iPod functionality is not needed the iPhone is in the cradle, elsewise it's connected via cable and sits in the pocket. Some say BMW is working on a new version of the cradle which enables simultaneous playback, but don't know if that's true.


Best regards, south

Depends if the y-cable charges the phone and if the phone is capable of music playback with the bluetooth active (it should work)

If you want the best from both worlds, having a 16GB pen drive in the USB port with the iPhone in the cradle ready to make calls is the way to.

Why is there no adapter for the Treo and Blackberry? Just as common as the Iphone and way more common than that motorola phone that has this accessory.

The cradle connectivity is to charge the phone and to use the external sharkfin car antenna. It does not provide any interface for music.

The 6FL cable will also charge the phone and provide a interface to music. The normal bluetooth link will allow calls to be made through the BMW system. Only the external antenna cannot be used in this case.

The Bluetooth connection is unaffected, be with the cradle or with the 6FL connection, so yes, you will still have the access to your phonebook thru BT in your iDrive display.

BMW now announces new SnapIn adapters/cradles for the iPhone (both 2G and 3G). These allow USB playback while the iPhone is docked in the cradle.

Required is 633 (or 644) AND 6FL AND 6FN. Now to the best part:
6FN is NOT retrofittable.

Great done, really great.


Best regards, south

So only Oct 09 and on production cars can use this adapter? You always seem to be right about things, but where did you hear the part about not being retrofittable?
