The guys at Scoopz.com have some bad news for those of you that upgraded your iPhone to version 2.0 or recently purchased a new iPhone 3G. As we reported earlier also, the new iPhone seems to have some issues with the BMW's navigation system or the factory kit. 

The 2.0 update will stop your BMW iDrive from seeing your iPhone’s contacts list. Basically, all the iPhones running the 1.0 to 1.1.4 software version should connect perfectly to BMW's integrated bluetooth and the contacts should appear on your iDrive screen or on your radio display, for those of you that did not order the BMW Nav System.

Scoopz has checked the compatibility between the first generation iPhone running the 2.0 software and his 2006 BMW M5, which accordingly to previous reports, it works flawlessly with the iPhone.

I will let them take over from here and explain to you more about this issue and the steps they have taken trying to sync up the two systems.
