Most folks may not have heard of the iPod Out feature in Apple’s iOS 4, but BMW is the first car manufacturer to announce support for said feature. When implemented, it allows users to connect supported iOS devices and output the iPod interface on the connected device’s external display, which in this case means the BMW display. Instead of showing a custom interface, the vehicle would be displaying Apple’s own interface, which can then be controlled by the vehicle’s controls. Once everything is setup, users will be able to control the iPod’s music playback, browse the music catalog, playlists, podcasts and Genius mixes. This feature will be coming to BMW cars in 2011, which isn’t that far off. You can check out a video of this feature in action after the jump.
