There's no reason you really need the cradle at all, the phone is more than capable of doing this over bluetooth... BMW just needs to do a proper implementation.

Germans are used to getting into the car and driving on long trips much more frequently than Americans, who often get into the car for 10-15 minutes at a time, so definitely the whole cradle thing is a big PITA.

Having said that, for the extra 900 bones over the cost of just the nav I will order with tech package, it might be slightly more future proof and could get a software upgrade or two down the road.
