Dude, Where's My iCar? - iPhone and iPod Integration in Today's Cars

USB connection out of the Bose system in a 2011 Chevrolet Malibu LTZ works, too. The (usually) part comes from learning the hard way that the BlueAnt Q1 Bluetooth headset with original firmware (that can't be upgraded on a Mac!) broke the connectivity to / from the Bose head. Had to restore the iPhone 4 and forget the BlueAnt Q1, but now all is well. So, pay attention to your Bluetooth headset as a potential cause of any problems you may experience.



BMW has also recently released an app that allows you to lock and unlock your car, turn on the climate control and find your car using google maps. Definitely worth a mention.



BMW has one of the best car integrations, also Volvo!



I'm surprised BMW wasn't mentioned in this article being one of the first car makers who got fully featured iPhone and iPod integration (with the iPod they started as early as 2005).
I read that in 2011 or the latest 2012 models the iPhone will be even more integrated with the main display showing music playlists and maps.
