Wasting no time at all, BMW announced iPhone compatibility for its passenger cars yesterday. Apple's latest supertoy will work in Bimmers equipped with BMW Assist and Bluetooth connectivity. Furthermore, the iPhone's iPod feature gets full radio / iDrive screen integration in the following vehicles that have the iPod/USB interface installed:
  • 3 Series built March 2007 and later
  • 5 Series built March 2007 and later
  • X5 built April 2007 and later
  • 6 Series built September 2007 and later
It's all detailed on BMW NA's Owner's site.

E90post.com member PAMidge has the first review of the iPhone/Bimmer implementation up on the web (as pictured above). The car used was the poster's 1-week-old 2007 328xi. The verdict: "Fully functional." Read the whole thing.
