I understand that something that has to do with the car itself takes time to develop, test and release. But we are talking about a cradle that needs a new connector here.
I also understand that I simplify the matter a lot now since there is a lot of electronics involved in a car these days and everything needs to work. But this makes the BMW Apps + SDK useless for millions of people.
