BMW has recently introduced BMW Station for the Apple iPhone, which has been developed for BMW models not fitted as standard with the iDrive control system.
The BMW Station for the Apple iPhone is available for BMW 1 Series and BMW 3 Series models, the BMW Z4, BMW X1, new BMW X3 and outgoing BMW X3 with this specification.
The BMW Station for the Apple iPhone is placed in a position within the driver’s field of view and allows the mobile phone to be docked without visible cable connections.
It also comes with a hands-free kit featuring a directional microphone and radio mute function for incoming calls, plus a charging function for the mobile phone.
A BMW-specific software application for the Apple iPhone will be available from spring 2011 as an addition to the BMW Station for the Apple iPhone.
This BMW Link app combines the telephone and music player functions of the mobile phone with a navigation function and selected services from BMW ConnectedDrive, such as breakdown assistance, Google Local Search and News.
To ensure that the functions deliver maximum benefit in the car and that the iPhone is optimally aligned, the BMW Station for the Apple iPhone can be used in horizontal format and provides user with a wide range of adjustment.
