Cradle vs Console USB Port?

If I use a cable to connect either our iPhone 4s or iPhone 5 into the console USB port, will that give us the same functionality of using the cradle?

My wife and I both use Pandora and it would be nice (and a lot safer) to control Pandora through the iDrive controller rather than from the iPhone screen. I just don't want to spend $250 or so each for the necessary adapters if the adjacent USB port will provide the same functionality. I briefly tried just plugging my iPhone 5 in to the console USB port but did not get any control through iDrive. I may have not done something correctly as I did not spend a lot of time playing with it since blue tooth works so well except for having Pandora control.
