I have an iphone 3gs and seems like its pointless to get the adapter kit because if someone texts or e-mail comes in will that show up on my screen too??
From what I understand, the USB in the glovebox is to import tunes onto the hard drive. It won't actually play music from there - only import.

Can anyone confirm?
