Not as clean as other setups, but cheaper, charges the phone and does not lock up on my like the DICE would.
Yeah, DICE is nice when it's not locked up.... have it in the e46 and I'm thinking in running the $6 cable from the DICE aux port and just use it like that since I can't install an AUX port directly to the Bussines unit.
I use the AUX port on the X3 without any issues other than I can't charge and stream music in my iPhone at the same time. No problems with my son's SONY Walkman mp3 player...
