Is there anyway to import my contacts via the usb port in the glove box?

I knew I had seen this somewhere.

http://www.bmw.com/com/en/owners/navigation/pia.html

"Here you can conveniently adjust settings for a number of functions in your BMW and have all changes saved and applied together. Settings are stored in a profile that can be transferred not only to your vehicle, but to other BMW vehicles as well, either directly through BMW Online or using a USB storage device. That way, all changes are applied immediately, without the need to adjust each individual function to your preference. "

"...A function for managing and transferring addresses is also available."

I'm going to have to try this tomorrow.

Interesting... I use my BB as my main contact list, it syncs via bluetooth each time I get in the car. Very seamless and transparent.

For some reason my car only imports the first 10 contacts from my blackberry. People get in my car and think that every one of my friends last name starts with "A".

Damn, it looks like the drivers profile option is not enabled on US spec cars.
