Overpriced and over hyped.

No Android? No use to me!
It'll be a cold day in hell before I chose to buy any Apple products.

Cool stuff, but I'm also hoping for Android support.

To complete the whole pseudo-iDrive experience, BMW will be releasing an iPhone app soon called BMW Link, which is sort of an in-car interface for your iPhone. Other than your usual telephony and music player functions, BMW Link also offers certain services from BMW ConnectedDrive such as breakdown assistance.
That sounds sweet. But I wonder if it covers all years for the models listed, or just the more recent ones. I realize "3 series" means "E9x 3 series" of course, but will it cover the early years?

Also, the picture that shows the dock doesn't look like a 3 series. I wonder where it would actually mount in a 3 series.

The software sounds pretty cool too.

Having a proprietary operating system is to ensure that the user experience is the best it can be which has been Apples philosophy they've stuck with from the beginning and BMW obviously recognizes for their customers. I think they've proven this considering everyone else in the biz just waits for their new products to launch and copies them like your beloved Android and all the tablet devices being released. Funny how PC tablets came out years ago, but never got off the ground until the ipad which is now cannibalizing notebook sales. http://www.macrumors.com/2010/09/17/...-retail-sales/. Do you really think this is due to their "overpricing" and proprietary software? I doubt you'd be so concerned if you'd picked up some of their stock a year ago.
or even picked up some of their stock 2 weeks ago... hit all time high today

Okay, so it's pretty clear that tere will be no retrofit option for current iDrive systems, could someone please tell me when these changes are going to be installed on the X5 LCI and the new X3? I mean if I order the car within couple of months from today will I get the updated iDrive? Any ideas guys?

You guys funny about this Apple stuff.

Think back to the 80's & 90's when your mommies and daddies only had cassette tapes or CD's to play in the car.

Imagine what our kids will whine about in 15-20 years.

Droid is a joke, and a fad. The sofware will be extinct in a few years.
