Mine doesn't even do that, but for it to be useful it would have to be scrolling continuously. Bummer - when you have 1000s of tracks on an iDevice or USB storage, not being able to see what is playing is not good.

Fine when you can run the iDevice in UI mode - i.e select tracks on the iPhone and have it display the now playing info, but that doesn't help when playing off USB.

Thank God for Audiogalaxy streaming and Windows Home Server.

Ace, that shot of your car is that along the Great Ocean Road? It's awesome. First time I was in Melbourne I didn't even know it existed and I took someone's advice to go for a drive to Port Campbell... man was that a great surprise experience!
Quick question, in Idevice UI mode, how long does it take to load your ipod as soon as you plug it in? Also can your browse the ipod on the car AND the phone at the same time? I have a USA-SPEC in my TL and you can do both at the same time and it takes only a few seconds to load. I remember a lot of folks were disapointed with the BMW interface because it took a LONG time to load up the songs, and I can understand that since I have an iphone now and just want to plug it in and go!
