Mein Auto: 2008 X3
X3 Bluetooth Question

Hi!

My first time on this forum. I just traded my 2006 330i for a 2008 X3 and I am having issues with the bluetooth. It is paired fine, but when I try to look up a phone number to dial out i have to scroll through the entire phone book. With my 330i, the bluetooth had an alphabetic directory. Am I missing something? I can't belive the technology woud have went backwards.
Any help?

I don't know about the Phonebook functions itself, as my '04 does not have BT. Someone will chime in if this is possible.

Sorry for the bad news, but the '08 X3 is technologically behind your '06 330i. The X3 is still based on the E46 3-series platform, which dates to 1999. Thus, the technology (except for the motor and gearbox) dates to that era as well. Hence, the pixellated displays, non-user-programmable key functions, single zone climate control, and lack of rear vents.

you are not missing anything... you have to scroll through the phone book. of course, you can always use the voice commands and just say "dial *name*"
