For the first time following the introduction of MINI Connected, the BMW Group is now also offering selected iPhone applications in a BMW for integrated use in the vehicle. This new capability – so far unmatched by any other carmaker – further enhances the already extensive BMW ConnectedDrive package of features and sees BMW once again underline its leading role in the field of in-car integration technology. Designed to improve the integration of the Apple iPhone in the vehicle, this option will be available from spring 2011 in conjunction with the launch of the new BMW 1 Series Coupe and new BMW 1 Series Convertible. This interface for the first time allows features such as Facebook, web radio and Twitter to be shown on the vehicle display and accessed using the iDrive Controller.

Let’s hope they allow Apple apps from Radio Time or Reciva (two of the services that list OC Talk Radio among their choices!)
