ya know, technically it does work, but the phonebook does not automatically download like it does with fully compatible phones; thus, it will take phone calls from your phone through the bluetooth just fine. It will not show the name of the contact calling, and you cannot voice dial a contact without manually entering the contacts one at a time and recording the person's name.
In practice, regardless of the full or partial support, you'll end up finding it easier to use siri to initiate phone calls. One button press and one command on your phone will always be easier than a steering wheel and then three steps to call with confirmations of what you said. With siri, you're on the phone or voicemail before you'd be dialing on any hands free system. It's that way with our hyundai as well.
It is worth mentioning that our OB does not have the navigation built-in, we have the upgraded speakers, but not the navigation. Please let me know if you find out that the NAV feature enables a fully supported iPhone. You'll know it works when you can say "Call John Smith" and it actually calls him. If it doesn't "work" you have to add his name and record it, or speak out his phone number to dial it.
