Well, I don't know. It only has a spot in the arm rest for that dock connector which doesn't include a dock which is consistent with what other posts say. I brought the apple usb cable along with me and tried the usb in the arm rest and it wouldn't connect to the facebook stuff or the web radio or messages via my iphone.
When the phone is connected via bluetooth, it'll play the music on my iphone but it doesn't have track information. My ipod didn't play at all, just charged when connected via usb. And as usual, the BMW website is misleading.....
The ipod atleast played with the normal apple cable via usb in my 08 so something must have changed in MY2009.
There's a second usb port in the glove box to download music to the onboard hard drive but have not tried it out yet. Still stuck at work =p
