engadget stitcher/idrive integration hands on video

BMW announced today at SXSW that it's teaming up with Stitcher to integrate the popular iPhone app's on-demand streaming functionality into vehicles equipped with the BMW Apps and Mini Connected technologies. We ran into BMW's Robert Passaro in the halls of Austin's Convention Center and he was kind enough to give us an exclusive demo of Stitcher inside a lovely BMW 650i convertible ahead of today's launch. Most of the iPhone app's features are available using the vehicle's infotainment system, including the ability to search, provide feedback ("More Like This" and "Listeners Also Like"), and create / remove custom stations -- album art is even displayed in high-resolution alongside show information. Take a look at our gallery below, then watch us tune Stitcher into the Engadget Mobile Podcast right from the BMW's center console in our hands-on video after the break.

Does BMW apps work with the iPad or the iPod Touch?
Does it need a service connection (if you don't have wifi all the time) to work? Or does it need specifically the iPhone to work?

This seems awesome, thanks for sharing!

You need BMW Apps for this to work. Does anyone have BMW Apps? I think it uses your cell phone data plan, is that right? if so, do you find yourself blowing through your data plan if you're on a capped plan?
