+1. The dealer said it would work with standard cable but it doesn't.

i have the M Sport on the way, idrive, none navigation... so will i be able to see a list of albums / artists and pick songs i want to play through the screen, with the y cable? the ebay page seems to suggest so.

No album cover art, but indeed the rest with the y cable.

Excellent! just confirmed this with my sales rep that i can control my iphone from the screen with the none nav system, but with the addition of a Y cable for 45 (which i'm trying to get thrown in with the car).

If i wanted the enhanced functionality (album art), i'd need to do two upgrades:

6NF: Telephone USB autio interface @ 70.00
6NK: Upgrade of Bluetooth @ 280.00
+ the cradle

My dealer told me today that you only get cover art with what you bought from iTunes.

I got a delivery day for my 120d M-sport today: May 3.

Interesting

I plugged my white iPhone 4 cable in my new 2012 F20 at the dealer on saturday when I collected.... device not supported

off to fleebay and bought a non-OEM Y-cable, ... all works a treat with iDrive control and steering wheel control ... but no artwork cover....

Can anybody enlighten me how to activate artwork on the BMW display?
- true that its only for albums bought in iTunes store (in my case = 0)

or something else? really disappointed I cant the the album artwork

actually one older iPhone is sitting in the armrest with the Y-cable

The sat nave ipHone sits in a very nice screen mounted cradle, will upload pic of this too.

It would be all too sweet if TomTom would allow TomTom app to be displayed on the BMW iDrive screen, but this is an TomTom restriction rather than a BMW/Apple one....
if that , together with the album artwork could work, then all my wishes are answered for....

for now just happy to get the album artwork on the screen.. and that is proving a challenge

like i mentioned above, i asked my dealer about album art, and he said you need the following factory fitted options:

6NF: Telephone USB autio interface @ 70.00
6NK: Upgrade of Bluetooth @ 280.00
+ the cradle

just go in, ask to see an F20 with the same config as you've got, then plug in your ipod cable and see what happens
