The model shown at the Geneva auto show came equipped with a factory-installed iPhone cradle, an option costing approximately $338 (249 euros). This dock integrates the iPhone's audio with the car.

Smart designed this iPhone app for use in the car. Its main menu includes buttons for navigation, phone, music, and assistance. Although the phone function duplicates the iPhone's own phone application, the buttons are bigger, designed to be used while driving, and the audio plays through the Smart's stereo.
