I better not trust my sales rep, he told me that this new unit can be dealer installed.
If you use iTunes via a memory stick there could be a problem. I'm not positive about this, but I believe that the memory stick has to used with a computer that has been registered with Apple. If this is the case, I think that there would be no way to register the BMW computer with Apple and you couldn't play the encrypted iTunes material from the memory stick. As i said, I might be wrong, but it's certainly something to be considered.

As far as the new unit being dealer installed, JSpira has stated that it cannot be. He has access to a certain amount of inside information and is usually proven to be right when he makes a statement of this sort. Certainly he's a more reliable source of information than a CA usually is.
