USB for non-iDrive?

ok so I have tried searching for this, but all I ever end up see people say is some expensive iPod retrofit.

I have a 07 e92 non-iDrive with only an AUX in the arm rest container. Is there any easy way to hook up a USB into the radio or is it all expensive? lol

Not saying the AUX is crap but I had the same set up on my hyundai and just figured this BMW would at least have a USB integration somewhere lol

I want to play music but having to connect my phone via AUX is just kind of a pain especially when wanting to change songs or if I ever have to use my phone as GPS then it's a real pain in my butt!

FYI

BMW has a Ipod only retrofit for non idrive it costs about 500 bucks installed
still requires a wire but its digital.
. I have seen it as low as 260 on there website uninstalled it requires programming to install.
Dension makes a unit called the gateway 500 its about 500 bucks it has USB
and a add on for streaming bluetooth.
Mobridge make s a similar unit I think bluetooth is included on that one.
The cheap methods going analog through the aux are the blackberry gateway
and Kenwood A300.
Aux Input is known to be low quality for audio.
