PS: The irony will be that Apple is changing the 30pin dock connector and hasn't told any of the auto-makers¡ (was making a joke that apparently didn't work)
Nice catch. I think you're right. I wonder if their contract with MS prevents them or if they are just so happy to be with MS. :)

My lease is up in 14 months, so this is good. I have a CR-V now, and am happy with it, but have really been looking at the new 2013 Ford Escape. All things being equal between them though next summer? The Honda has built in support for my iPhone and the Ford does not (aside from the pair via BT, that works well enough, but would require a driver to reach for the phone as opposed to the steering wheel) - I'll just get another CR-V.
And I don't think it is going to be just BT. My CR-V now is a USB port. So regardless if Apple changes the dock connector, it will be a matter of replacing the cord I have in there today. My iPhone can be controlled from my radio now, as a click wheel style iPod. Third party apps also play just fine, many displaying the information, just losing the controls.
Can't wait for this to move forward.
