I'll probably buy another one so i can refill whenever i want and just swap them. I don't have to bother taking my phone out of my pocket because everything else works via bluetooth.
Streaming music from web radio or pandora sounds better than the dinasour Sirius. It doesn't cut out as much as fm,hd or even worse am radio. I never come close to my 4gb limit with AT&T and have a tethering plan too, so use BMW live.

This is the future of infotainment in cars.
