It seems that in either car, if the iPod stays connected, but the car is off for a while then the iPod is dead. The fix is disconnect the iPod, turn the iPod on (it acts like a complete re-boot) and re-connect the cable. Works every time for me!

Maybe my iPod is defective, but I never have a problem using that same iPod outside of either car. Mind you, mine is an older Nano!

My guess it is an interface problem with the older iPods.


This is EXACTLY what is happening... I was thinking of buying a new iTouch or Nano, but didnít want to chance it by killing more devices. I actually got one of the two units back up and running. I had my sales rep swap the interface cable and it seems to be working so far.

Thanks so much. I'm not the only one. Whew! I was dreading having to go to BMW Service and fight with them about this.
