3. pandora now functional with ios5
4. iphone will not still play email messages thru connected...MAP apple restriction, not BMW...

look for two new apps soon.....

It's not what apps is now, it's what it will be...
Correction, you get iPOD cover art with the standard white cable as well. I could not get cover art with the y cable so I ditched it.

The media cradle gives you the car antenna, video out, charges phone, and an overheated phone from what I have read.
