Hi guys, new to the forum... new to BMW ownership as well. Will save that for the new member introduction forum though. Anyway, I just picked up a CPO 2007 530xi with nav and my Tour isn't synching very well/at all either. I've searched the boards up and down and it seems like people have had mixed results with the Tour (including in this thread). Dealers iPhone synched seamlessly, but my Tour is acting strange. Address book never loads, the icon on the idrive screen just blinks (antenna icon), I can dial a call from my phone and hear it through the car, but that's about it. Even after I disconnect from the call, the call appears as if it's still "Active" in the car. Only way to end it is to delete the phone from the bluetooth pairing screen. Frustrating!
Seeing as there have been some success stories with the Tour in an 07 5 series, is it more likely the software in the phone itself or in the car that may need updating? Any feedback is appreciated, this forum is a great resource.
