6FL or not?

How do I tell if my BMW has 6fl? It's an 08 e90 320d, I can control my iPod with the radio but it is ridiculously slow at scrolling through albums etc, anyway I can speed this up?

I see a lot of posts about the Y-Cable but unless this speeds up the connection do I actually need it?

if there is no USB port under the armrest then there is no 6FL (iPod/USB adapter) in your car.

So that's your 6FL.

The problem I'm having is that it takes an age to scroll through albums, and initially takes a while to come up with 'album', 'artist' etc on the centre console, would the bmw cable resolve this? (As I'm currently just using the ipod cable that came with the ipod)

It may... give it a try.
