Sorry if this has been answered through one of the other 973 post.

I just picked up a CPO 2010 BMW 535. No Nav package in it.

I see in the console there are USB/AUX ports. Currently I use a AUX cable to connect my iPhone to play music. And connect a USB cable to charge. I've read about this Y cable. Basically the Y cable lets you do both charge and play at the same time with one cable correct?

Also, the Y cable will allow you to control the music controls on iPhone on your iDrive? (even without nav package?). Correct?

I have an iPhone 5, so the typical Y cable will not work right now due to the new 8 pin dock. I see there are adapters out there that connect a 30 pin cable (all other iPhones) to a 8 pin cable so you can plug in the iPhone 5. If I purchase the adapter, can I use the Y cable still on the iPhone 5? Will I be able to control music controls via my car controls?

Can you control pandora via car controls with Y cable?
