The launch of new BMW interface technology will provide BMW and Mini drivers with an easy-to-operate, intuitive way of using their iPhone and iPod touch in future BMW Group vehicles.

iPod Out enables BMW and Mini entertainment systems to display and control the music playback feature of the iPhone and iPod touch directly within the vehicle's main display.

The LCD display in BMW and Mini provides users with the simplicity and familiarity they have come to trust in their iPhone and iPod touch.

The integrated iPod navigation menu can be safely operated through the vehicle's controls. Additionally, state-of-the-art iPod features such as custom playlists and Genius, which creates a compatible playlist of songs from a user's own library, is made available to drivers through the vehicle's main display.

iPod Out requires iOS 4 with iPhone 3G, iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4 and iPod touch (second and third generation). The new interface technology developed for this purpose by the BMW Group enables continued upgrades of iPod Out features for the iPhone and iPod touch in vehicles and represents a milestone in vehicle integration. Future vehicles equipped with this technology will be able to adapt more quickly to the software lifecycles of iPod touch and iPhone.

The new interface technology was developed by an international cooperation of the BMW Research and Development Center in Munich, Germany and the BMW Group Technology Office Palo Alto in Silicon Valley in California.
