How do you navigate through a library of 10,000 songs? Preferably on the road using the vehicle's control functions. Virtually all common MP3 players, Apple iPods and USB sticks can be integrated effortlessly with a BMW Audio system. The title and album cover are displayed in the Control Display or radio display. Having the USB connection in the central console enables the music players or an Apple iPhone to be controlled directly. All common compression formats (MP3, AAC, WAV and WMA) as well as playback lists in M3U format are supported. Integrating an Apple iPod or iPhone also requires the BMW cable adapter, which is available as an optional accessory.
