More BMWs get i-Pod interface
Woodcliff Lake, New Jersey – BMW announced the debut of a new iPod Interface that will expand applicability to BMW models for which the original Interface was not available. This means that an iPod Interface will be available for every current BMW model.
The new Interface will be available for owners of the new BMW 3 Series Sedans and Sports Wagons as well as the 5, 6, and 7 Series. It will also be available for the new M5 Sedan and M6 Coupe. It will
enable audiophiles to bring their entire music collections with them, plug directly and effortlessly into a superior sound system. The BMW iPod Interfaces integrate the iPod through a direct connection in the BMW glovebox, so it is protected and out of view.
Since the new Interface is compatible with SIRIUS satellite radio as well as the recently introduced HD Radio, owners will be able to enjoy a broad selection of high fidelity broadcast music sources as well.
The original iPod Interface will continue to be available for 2002 and later BMW models: X3, X5, Z4, and previous generation 3 Series.
