BMW Enhances Apple iPod Interface for Their Cars
BMW has announced a newly developed interface for the Apple iPod will be available for owners of the new BMW 3 Series Sedans and Sports Wagons as well as the 5, 6, 7 Series and the new M5 Sedan and M6 Coupe.

The new Interface is compatible with SIRIUS satellite radio as well as the recently introduced HD Radio.

The original BMW iPod adapter integrated an Apple iPod into the vehicle's audio system. The new interface will also allow users to incorporate their iPods directly into their car's sound system, but with the newly available capability to sort their music by playlist, artist, album, genre, podcast, and finally, a random selection of 500 songs from the user library. Artist, album, and song title will appear in the Display Monitor.

This integration means drivers can control their music through their existing audio system and multifunction steering wheel, this allows drivers to access their entire music library, shuffle songs, skip between tracks and adjust volume.

The original BMW iPod Adapter will continue to be available for 2002 and later BMW models: X3, X5, Z4, and previous generation 3 Series.

Consumers should check with their BMW centres for specific application restrictions, and installation can only be performed by authorized BMW centres only.
