Hey you iPhone owners, have you noticed when you look at the phonebook on the car LCD, the iPhone adds the word "(mobile)" next to the name? Something like "John Doe (mobile"? It apparently screws up Voice Command a little when oftentimes you actually have to say "mobile" after saying the name as the system won't always recognize the name without it. Is there any workaround for that?

Also, any idea when the cradle will come out?

This is not a problem, this has been implemented to allow you to distinguish between different phone numbers.

This has been on the BlackBerry for years and it works quite well.

I don't have a problem saying "dial Florian Henckel von Donnersmark Home" and getting him at home.

Hey vrungel,

What Jspira said is correct. Regarding the cradle, I believe it's already available.
Go to the BMWUSA.com website for details on the iPhone and cradles.

Cheers,

Haha, got it! It's kinda funny though since I have an entry called Home, so now I have to say "Dial Home home"
