Snap In Adaptor with case?

Hi,

Just curious if anyone knows if the snap-in adapter for BMW Apps (84-21-2-218-390) will fit an iPhone with a thin case. Or does the case need to be removed before installing?

The case will need to come off, it is a very tight fit.

Not to mention, there is a fan in the snap-in adaptor which would be blocked by the case.

You don't need to use the cradle unless you want to display video out from the iPhone or use the native iPod interface on the BMW screen. Everything else is supported by the cable. Yes the cradle can use the external antenna for phone reception but it uses inductive coupling for that which doesn't seem to improve much on the iPhone 4s. The cradles are basically a waste of money.

Well, that's a real bummer. Thanks.
