Any screenshots out there of both iPod interfaces for comparison purposes?

I will always have both my iPhone (apps) and my beater iPod (music) sync'd to iDrive.....any complications that you foresee? If no cradle is purchased do I need a special cord or does the car have multiple USB ports in the armrest?

I have never used an iPod in the car so I cannot reply intelligently about that.

The interface is not bad at all with the cable. I just know that the cradle provides a more traditional iPod type interface on the idrive screen. You can still go to your playlists, search by any type, etc. with the cable.

The white Apple USB cord provided with your phone will suffice.
