BMW recently announced that they will be working on including support for one of the lesser known features on the iOS 4 from Apple – iPod Out. What does iPod Out do? Well, it lets a connected iPhone 3G, iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4, or iPod Touch to output as well as display an iPod interface on a connected device’s external display, which is actually found in future BMWs and Minis. This means you won’t have to grapple with BMW or Mini’s iPod interface any more, as you might be more familiar with Apple’s own interface instead which is fully controllable via the vehicle’s controls. It would be interesting to see how BMW’s iDrive controller fares with iPod Out support.
