He told me last week BMW was working on general compatibility issues. Maybe he will have more specific info on the 2010 model. Please let us all know what you find out.

The bizarre thing is that both iPod's are being powered by the connection, and the AUX
analog audio works too, so it's not a physical connection fault. Also the glove box USB
has been proven to work too (I uploaded my ED route from a USB drive at the WELT)

So, given that both iPod's work via USB in an '08/'09 528i xDrive and neither appear
on the '10 iDrive, it looks suspiciously like a s/w incompatibility ...

I'll keep everyone posted, if anyone else has a new iDrive system and they have had
similar (or no) problems pls post ...
I spoke with Cody this PM ... he has not heard of any issue like mine on the new iDrive
system, especially since the devices are charging but are not being recognised by the
iDrive ...

I have the car booked into my dealer on Thursday ... I will update thereafter
