I am enjoying the Bluetooth audio option, which is a nice upgrade from my previous 328i which did not have this feature.

What I have found interesting is that the idrive system does not download the track information from the iphone with bluetooth audio selected. This would seem to defeat the purpose of using bluetooth audio when driving as you cannot do anything other than go forward or backwards one track at a time. I thought that the purpose of the Bluetooth audio was to allow you to keep your phone in your pocket, etc, while driving, and to be able to control music selection wirelessly.

Am I missing something here with the setup?

If not, is there a place to go to send BMW feedback for a future feature upgrade?


This is how it works, with bluetooth you will have only next and previuos track control and you will need to choose your songs from the iphone itself, with the USB-Y cable you can do it using idrive
