If you browse your iPod like an HD you won't find your music sorted in albums, or whatever. It's a mess ... I'm not quite sure the BMW system is smart enough to find and sort everything.
(iTunes) playlists will be saved probably in an Apple extension, same question .. can BMW read this info?
It will probably be faster then the iPod interface, but I want everything organised on the iDrive screen (sorted by albums, compilations, artist, ...) not a list of 4578757878757 mp3's that the USB module has found on the HD.
I need to decide by tomorrow, I can't find anything on the internet and my dealer doesn't know it either ... way to go BMW!
