I'm confused one aspect. If analog audio is supported, but not video or iPod out, how will the apps platform work on the car?
The apps platform does not use video out (or ipod out) on the iPhone. What I mean by this is, the apps window on idrive for say pandora or mog is not being generated or created by the iPhone itself. More the app on the iPhone passes certain information to idrive through Bmws SDK. BMW recently opened this up so APP developers can now add the necessary hooks into their app so the app will interface with idrive, providing BMW approve.
