2013 X3 Real Time Traffic

Pat-

While in map mode, give the voice command "options". Among the map display options is something like "traffic conditions/gray map". (I'm not near my car right now so I can't give the exact...

2013 X3 Real Time Traffic

Thanks for your post!

I think that probably sums up what the issue is on my 2013 X3.

Hardly an inconvenience- I was more concerned whether something needed attention when I'm in for service...

2013 X3 Real Time Traffic

Strange- I am suddenly getting occasional traffic data on the gray map, but limited to yellow and orange lines in congested areas. The green (and red) flow lines are absent.

I live in a...

2013 X3 Real Time Traffic

My '13 X3 with Technology Package is fantastic with its real time traffic bulletins.

According to the manual, if I switch over to the gray map it should show traffic flow in a the 4 color...

I picked up my 2013 X3 in April. One of the things that REALLY bothers me is the absence of the street that I live on. While I didn't move in until May of 2011, the subdivision has been on the...

Looking to buy used X3

Prior to buying a 2008 X3, I owned several Honda Accords that all went well past 150k miles trouble free. The '08 was solid but had a couple nagging quality issues- nothing major but the kind of...

Jesus I got 34 mpg!!

I picked up my 2.8i in April and have put just over 5k miles in a mixture of highway and suburban driving. My consumption via the computer seldom goes below 23 and averages well over 24 in my mixed...

iPhone Bluetooth Audio

On my 2013 2.8 once I connected my iPhone 5 via USB, the Bluetooth audio was disabled for that device and I could not reenable it without deleting the phone and re-adding it. The USB connection...

Just ordered X3 35i

My 2008 had premium sound, my 2013 doesn't. There is a difference in audio quality- most apparent in the extreme low range and upper range. If I was special ordering a car, I would most definitely...

Squeaky door

On my '08 X3 I could eliminate it by tweaking the way I closed my windows. After raising windows and getting that "jam tight" seal, I'd just back it off a tiny bit- not enough to break the wind seal...

My '08 X3 had the same issue; callers were crystal clear but they couldn't hear me. They said it sounded like I had all the windows open. The microphone was replaced but it didn't help. The...

Buffering on iPhone vs X3 radio

I somehow introduced a level of confusion on this (something I am known to do!)

Until early January, there were no buffer issues at all on my X3. Bridges, underpasses, tree lines, whatever. ...

Added the XMRO to my iPhone

I subscribed to the XM Radio online service, linked to my '04 Accord and put it on my iPhone. Audio is actually better on most channels than the X3 Sirius install - and it doesn't fade out under...

Antenna replacement update

I finally had my Sirius radio antenna replaced. Unfortunately, it seems to have made no difference. I still lose signal after every bridge, underpass, or treeline. Listening to it in an urban area...

AMAZING! Your time-frame and symptoms are identical to my 2008 X3 (though I didn't have the complete volume loss.) Prior to this, I rarely lost signal. Now, there's not a bridge, underpass,...

MP3 track names

For what it's worth, I've had mixed results using both Windows Media Player and iTunes to burn a music disk (though I've only owned my car since late November so I'm still playing with its features.)...
