I can find no evidence that the iPhone 4/4S can support improved antenna reception via connection to any dock, or the BMW Media cradle. In short, it's a myth.

If you have 6NR, the Media cradle gives you support for Facebook, Twitter, Pandora (including art and Thumbs up/down), and MOG.

I think the nicest feature of the cradle is the ability to navigate your iPhone music via a more traditional Apple interface, than the somewhat clunky default interface you get with normal iDrive + USB connection.
