I'll be following your post
I'll be following responses closely. I too have recently purchased a '13 535xDrive with (among other options) the Tech Pkg. I've not wanted to go to the iPhone because I favor more "open" technology. I was aware of the limitations of being an "Android guy" but also read that BMW will someday soon make BMW APPS work with those of us who dare to play on the other team.
That said, I have to agree with you - the car is complex enough without knowledgeable support available. Based on the iPhone issues with BMW APPS I'm not inclined to rush out and pay Verizon any more $$$ for something that will reduce, not enhance, my driving pleasure.
On a + note ... I'm lovin the NAV!! What an improvement over my '07 530xi
My opinions are free - you'll get exactly what you pay for!
