You still need wire to charge the phone, especially if you're using for music/GPS/pandora/etc. I didn't think this was a problem until I got an iPhone, that thing always needs to be charged!

I'm glad to have aux input for my iPod, 120GB storage holds all my music with room to spare. And integrated BT BMW phone system, mutes anything on the stereo when a call comes in. Expensive, but amortizing the system cost over 10+ years makes it easier.
