Can anyone confirm, deny or just plain tell me...

Can I attach an iPod to a 645Ci with Professional Nav system? I have seen on other threads a discussion about a cable to attach to the AUX input, but BMW in the UK don't seem to know if this will work a) at all, b) so that track names etc come up on the screen or c) so that I can control the iPod from the steering wheel buttons.

Unless I'm waay off the mark, the Dension product won't help here either - because I don't want to see the iPod while I'm driving.

If the aux input you have is just a 1/8" stereo plug input (female), you will not see track names on your screen. All that does is to get the sound through your speakers. The only buttons that will have any control on your steering wheel are the volume buttons.

I am not sure if Dension has a product to work in your car (Icelink), but if they do you do not need to "see" the iPod, you can put it out of sight and use your steering wheel controls for volume and track changes etc... and nav screen for track names
