Thanks for the clarification.
BMW in Europe implemented some third-party apps directly into iDrive (I have seen Pandora) without requiring an iPhone connected to the car. Like having an account for your car ordered thru ConnectedDrive. Not offered in the USA yet.

I suppose that eventually it will be offered in the USA as the "free" BMW Apps is gone -probably the reason of removing it as the subscription will be paid thru BMW.
