2007 ipod integration kit limitations / missing features
i know this topic has been beaten to death, but i've already searched so please bare with me.
i went to the dealer today and inquired about an ipod kit for my 07 M5. the service adviser i spoke to told me that the software version out right now (i believe v23.2) has severe limitations, including:
having to put all songs into 5 albums
names of songs not showing up on idrive
255 album limit
from what i've been able to gather from the older threads, you do lose some of the functions through the idrive. however, some lost functions don't match up with what i was told. it could be highly possible that i heard wrong, and/or the person i was talking to didn't know what he was talking about.
i was also told that there would be a software update (i'm guessing v24) available in july. with BMW's track record thus far, i won't hold my breath.
so for those of you who've gotten the ipod integration kit, can you please confirm some of the missing features? i just want to see if i can live with these annoyances, or if i should just wait for a 100% compatible kit.
