iPhone 4 integration
 
Does anyone have the iPhone 4 working properly through the iPhone/USB adapter? My CA told me it won't work. My 1st gen dinosaur is on its last legs and I want to get the 4, but want to make sure the bluetooth, etc. will work before I buy it...:dunno:

I thought someone had posted a BMWUSA press release that said they were working on a software upgrade to support Iphone4. I'll see if I can find it.

Thanks! :thumbup:

Well, it doesn't really say if it will be upgraded in current iDrive vehicles....

I tried my iPhone 4 and the cables do not work. It seems to charge the phone, but no data is flowing. Bluetooth works fine of course.

BimmerGirl74 07-28-2010 03:21 PM

BMW needs to get on it with a new cable ASAP....

Just some things to try, but try to re-load IO4 to your iPhone.

It's Apple and not the cars, I have several different cars and it's doing it in my 2010 Camaro SS as well as my 2011 BMW X5.

Kinda wish I would have stayed with v3. Funny thing is, most of the time if you go forward a bit, and then back, and then forward (searching for albums etc...) it will start working OK.

My iPhone4 works perfectly with iDrive. What is specifically not working?

iPhone 4 here works w/my '07 335i's Bluetooth and 6FL(USB+iPod). 6FL functionality is the same as my 1st gen iPod Touch.

My iPhone 4 (iOS 4.0.1) works fine (6FL iPhone USB adapter & Bluetooth integration) in my 2011 BMW X5 50i (PCD delivery on June 30th).

Iphone 4 doesn't work
 
I have 08 X8 4.8i with ipod integration, it doesn't see Iphone, bluetooth works.... sad :-( I'm taking my car to the dealer, let's see what they have to say about it.

Using the Y cable, my 3G, 3GS and 4 works just like every iPod i have. I do get a massage about static issues on the iPhone but that is the STD non-approved adapter message. You must use the Y cable and cannot use the white iPhone cable. I cannot talk yet about the 2011 new combo box which begins in Oct production which eliminates the y cable. I pick it up in 4 days and will test with all my iPhones and iPods

My Iphone 4 works fine with my 2009 1 series and 2010 X5D. One item I have found is the device needs to be fully charged to work correctly. The BMW USB does not have enough power to run a phone with a battery 20% or less. I am currently using IOS 4.1. Both vehicles have iDrive with navigation.

I have a 10/10 build X5, iPhone 4 and Bluetooth work fine but no cover art or bluetooth music streaming.

i have a 2010 x5, iphone 4 works better in the car then my wifes 3gs lol, never had a problem with it so far :)

Iphone 4 problem solved !
 
Posted here couple of day ago having problems with IPhone 4 and 2008 4.8 x5 with Ipod Integration kit. I've used regular USB cable, and car didn't see iphone. Today went to the dealer, got a BMW Y cable, hooked up my Iphone 4 to it and everything works !

partial functionality
 
I just picked up a used 2010 328i with value pkg (which includes the AUX and USB port and associated Y-cable) but no iDrive or Nav. I do not have smartphone integration 6NF.

My iPhone4 is successfully paired and I can use the cell phone with no problems. But I *am* having this problem:
the iPod functions of my iPhone4 only partially work. My radio head display shows the iPOD connection and I can see/scroll thru the playlists from my iPhone using the radio controls. But no songs will play!
My older standalone iPOD 4G works perfectly (and sounds great).

Did Apple change the software interface specs with iPhone4 (is that what they mean by "iPod Out") ? Does BMW need to update my car's firmware or something? :banghead:

Same iPhone 4 Issue
 
Apple must have broken something with the latest iPhone update. My iPhone 4 was working perfectly in my '11 X5. Now I can scroll through lists and select tracks, but all tracks come up with a 0:00 count and nothing plays. I can disconnect the USB on the Y cable and still listen to tracks selected on my phone, but it is a hassle not being able to do it in iDrive. Of course, the phone doesn't charge without the frickin USB connected either. :(

sgibbs33 11-28-2010 08:07 AM

full functionality restored
 
Seems like Apple has fixed whatever problem my iPhone4 was having connecting to my 2010 328i (no iDrive).

After an iTunes patch, I've found that I can now play all my music once again using just the original BMW supplied Y-adapter (USB and AUX in the center console). Not only that, but the other apps (besides phone and ipod functions) are now accessible via iPhone even while connected to the car.

The iOS software on my phone is now 4.1 (8B117)

apw2607 11-28-2010 04:54 PM

Try 4.2.1

My Iphone 4 using 4.1 is not working properly with my 2009 M3. Music sounds distorted. Any thoughts??

MRV99 12-01-2010 08:10 AM

The only thing I can suggest is upgrade to the 4.2 which just came out. Some people have said this helps their issues. Plus you can now accept meeting invitation even if you are not using an exchange style server

Thanks for this... I got the 128i in 2009 and had the iPhone 3g at that time... it did not work with the Y cable then. I have the 4G and completely forgot about this and had been charging the phone through the cigarette lighter adapter and have not listened to any of my music. Downloaded some new music today and decided to explore my options again :: Thanks for this pic (hey I'm visual) and after looking for the Y cable, hooked it up and can now play all my music :) Thank you.
