Also I have the my BMW remote app that I side loaded to my SIII and the send to car app. Seems this does the same as the iPhone BMW apps? I think there is an android version as well. Don't have the car yet so haven't used these apps.

Also I have an iPod touch 32gb I never use so ill probably use that in the BMW.

Iphone is superior to any android phone, is about the quality of the product, hardware and OS are designed to work together, BMW has a similar philosophy , is about the quality and performance. Android may have more market share than Iphone, like toyota has more market share than BMW. Germans know about engineering, quality, and performance, is not surprising that BMW would prefer Iphone over android. Maybe Honda and Toyota prefer Samsung and HTC android phones? who knows?
