Radio problems...anyone?

I am currently parking my 135i in our driveway (my 7 and my wife's Smart occupy the garage) and I've noticed that my iPod connection has been problematic ever since the temperatures at night have been in the low 30s-40s. When I first start the car the iPod selection appears in the menu and the selected song will conntinue to appear on the radio screen even though the music cuts off or won't play. I've noticed the the problem solves itself if I disconnect the iPod and hold it in my hand for a while to warm it up. I've begun disconnecting the iPod from the car and storing it with my key fob inside the house and this seems to work as well. The iPod and BMW connecting cable are both new; so, I'm thinking that this is just a symptom of the cold and nothing more. However, I thought I would check-in and ask here in case anyone else has experienced anything like this.
