Reprogram Head Unit Text/Display Possible?

Hey guys,

I have the BMW Professional Head Unit with Bluetooth/hands free in my car and am using the OEM MOST iPod interface that runs through the glovebox.
I've been able to get it to work with my iPhone 5 by using an Apple 30-pin to lightning adapter (the longer cord one, not the square white one).

When i plug in the iphone though, it shows up as CD changer. Is it possible to reprogram the display on the radio to show up as "iPhone" instead of CDC? I would like it to just say iPhone instead of CDC, then say "iPhone" "Track 4" or whatever track it makes up on the spot.

Obviously this is a cosmetic issue only, but wasn't sure if any of you audiophiles had done this in the past.

The glovebox iPod adapter uses the CDC interface (hardware and software), thus the "CDC" display.

No way around that.
