I used my iPhone 5 plus lightning cable(just use it/buy another lightning cable for in-car use) in my former F30 and now in my 1M. Everything works just fine. Just like the iPhone 4 did with the former cable.

this was what I noticed as well. I have bluetooth and USB input.. but I do not have NAV or idrive.

I noticed that SIRI activates through bluetooth, and the new Google maps app also activates and announces directions via bluetooth in my car. The turn by turn never came through with Apple maps on any phone.. but the new google maps app does this.
