Sound and idrive update for bluetooth

Hi,
I have an 09 F01.

Couple of questions: I noticed that the iPod adapter uses analog signal, and the sound isn't as good as CD or even radio. Do you guys recommend simply using a USB stick or an android that uses the USB connection and by-passes the Auxiliary?

My second question has to do with the Bluetooth, currently I can't play music of my devices using Bluetooth, but Google maps for example sends sounds to the car using the "call feature", whenever new directions are sent, it says new call and then it ends the call. On my 2011 e92, the Bluetooth is able to play Audio from wireless devices. Can I update my system to accept Audio via Bluetooth?

yes please search. You need a Combox to stream bluetooth audio. Cost is around $600

Thanks, will a combox from a 2012 or 2013 work with an 09 if I find one used? Of course programming will be required.
