Smartphone integration and BMW Apps come in a single package, and it offers:
- Communications on facebook and twitter (why would I drive and surf on social media? And it seems redundant if I have data plan on my phone)
- Watch videos on the navigation screen when car is not moving (why would I watch them using the car's display when I have time for entertainment?)

Without the package, I can still call people, find my contacts, and listen to music...I don't understand why most of the cars in the dealership are equiped with this package. Is there any important aspect I am missing?

Read the threads about phone cradle. Yes, there are lots of reasons to have this. Check out UncleBnz's comments.

Thank you for the direction...I tried to search the posts, but couldn't find much info. Would you please provide more hint? Thank you!
