  • Browser - The CIC uses some flavor of Firefox 3.5, and there is no support for Flash, Java, or Silverlight, etc. (e.g. No football game animation)
  • Input - iDrive Controller scrolling through the alphabet one character at a time to enter URL's or fill in User Name or Password fields is painful.
  • Loosing Google - Send-To functionality, which is part of BMW Assist.
Thanks Shawn, Thats all I need to hear.. Not worth the trouble is right! No flash is a huge bummer
