Maybe it will (via bt) sync up to idrive and transpose our navigation, and cellphone address book into a multimedia center. I don't think bt can transmit that sort of data as quickly as would be needed however.

The video was cool but it obviously didn't tell us squat. Marketing ploy....keeps you guessing with the hopes of great anticipation/arrival. Just not working for me. Besides....I'm still going through the drivers manual to figure out all the details.

More than llikely a new UI for the I-Drive system........... product pictures are teasers designed to show functionality.

Or they have decided to take on the Consumer Electronics industry!!!

The video went by so quickly the only thing I saw was a camer and what looked like a replacement for the in-dash cup holder.

My guess is that its a removable in-dash DAP, iPod, iDrive stereo thing, that either comes as an option in future cars, or a replacement/accessory for current bmw's

I'm gonna go out on a limb and suggest, like some others, that this is yet anothoer step in the direction of portable personalization which perhaps can be connected to a home PC and customized with music, maybe video, phone settings and numbers as well as other personal information which could be useful to the i-drive system and the driver once connected to your BMW. I guess we may know soon enough!

If it is a piece of consumer electronics that attaches to the car, like the simple ipod interface, even after it's announced what it is we'll be waiting for it for 2+ years. And by the time it arrives it'll be horribly outdated technology.

Car companies just can't move fast enough in the world of consumer electronics to make a difference.
