Are you saying that with the docking insert (plus the combox hardware, I presume) and the BMW Apps software, you can display SMS texts and e-mail messages that have been received by the iPhone 4/4S? If so, that would seem to be a rather compelling value proposition for the docking insert, given the lack of full MAP support in iOS v. 6.0.
