Some pictures would be great please! Also, have you tested all of the integration capabilities with this cradle? What are the pros and cons of it? I know that you can't use a bumper/protector while it's in the cradle for example. Does the iPhone get very hot while in the cradle, or does the built-in fan keep it cool? Have you tested the hotspot capability while in the cradle with the armrest closed; if so, does it overheat the iPhone? I would really love to use my macbook's wifi in the car using the iPhone's hotspot capability to access the internet.

Is there anything beside Google, Facebook, and Twitter that you can connect to through the iDrive screen?
