    If anyone bothers to look on the BMW website, its obvious that their cars are compatible with the original iPhone released last year. No mention is made of the 3G iPhone supposedly released next month. This article is just a ploy to get views of this website off of the buzz surrounding the new iPhone.

    The new iPhone 3G is not fully compatible with BMW’s iDrive and for those who have the original iPhone that has been working perfectly with their iDrive, DO NOT update to iPhone2.0 software as it stops the address book sync from working with iDrive!
    I’ve updated my iPhone from 1.1.4 to iPhone 2.0 software and my 600+ contacts are no longer available on the BMW iDrive screen which means I’ve also lost the ability to voice dial from the car’s controls.
