BMW has announced a significant increase in new Snap-in Smartphone Adapter offerings which include Apple iPhone 5/5S and Samsung Galaxy S2/S3 models.
Offering a secure docking location and enhanced reception quality with a direct connection to the roof mounted antenna, a Snap-in Adapter offers a premium and seamless solution for phone to vehicle integration.

Using a Smartphone with a Snap-in Adapter requires 3 items:

1. Base plate – Supplied with SA 6NF/6NR/6NS or dealer installed for select vehicles
2. Snap-in Adapter – Available as a accessory, PN listed below
3. Compatible Smartphone – Supplied by the customer

Snap-in Adapters are available in 4 distinct versions:
  • Phone –Charging and enhanced reception only used when retrofitting a base plate.
  • Music – For vehicles with SA 6NF produced up to 9/2010 (10/2010 for X5/X6)
  • Media – For vehicles with SA 6NF and 6NR produced from 9/2010 (10/2010 for X5/X6)
  • Connect – Specific to NBT vehicles and support BMW APPS, these include many MY2013 SA 6NF 6NR optioned vehicles and most MY2014 SA 6NR 6NS vehicles.*
*CIC vehicles with SA 6NR and 6NS will not support audio out with the Connect device. These will require the soon to be released Music/Media device which is expected early 2014.

Availability:
”phoneadapt”

Product Highlights / Benefits:
  • Attractive, high quality design
  • Easy to use
  • Perfect for travel
  • Proper testing and approval by BMW of North America
  • Does not interfere with other vehicle systems
  • Superior warranty coverage to the aftermarket
o Accessories installed on/in the vehicle will carry the full New Vehicle Limited Warranty (4-year / 50,000-mile) if they were installed prior to delivery to the client. If the installation is made after the retail sale of the vehicle, the accessory will be warranted for the balance of the New Vehicle Limited Warranty period, or two years from its date of installation, whichever is greater.

Additional Highlights / Benefits:

All Snap-in Adapters provide the following benefits:
  • Charging of the device
  • Secure and stable docking location
  • Vehicle specific mount
  • Improved reception by connecting to the vehicle’s external antenna
The Music Snap-in Adapter adds:
  • Integrated USB connection which negates the need for a separate audio cable
  • Access to the music tracks stored on the Smartphone
The Media Snap-in Adapter includes the same as the Music, plus:
  • Display of “cover art”. With “cover art”, the applicable song’s original album cover will be displayed on the central information display.
The Connect Snap-in Adapter includes the same as the Media Snap-in Adapter.

Note: Phone versions of the Snap-in Adapters may be used in any vehicle with a base plate but do not connect through the USB port, and as such, will not allow the transfer of music.

How do I know if I have a CIC and NBT? They aren't on my sticker or the pricing guide.

Why does this have to be so complicated?

And also, is there something that this adapter will do for me that I won't get using the Lightning cable for my iPhone to connect into the USB. I have the Tech package on a 2014 328GT (on it's way to me now..).

It doesn't have to be complicated. Same question erupted in a different forum today:
http://www.bimmerfest.com/forums/sho...d.php?t=729429

There are many many threads and arguments about the delta function/features of the cradle vs cable. Search on iPhone cradle and you will find some easily.
