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.
What is MOG? I don't see it on the BMW app.

Also, Pandora, Twitter, Facebook, etc. work with the standard Y cable.

Cradle supposedly provided antenna hookup, and video out. Maybe some enhanced iPOD play features.
