My new Beast and some questions.....

Hi Folks-

Just picked up the new (to me) 2011 X6 xDrive 50i and boy am I excited!

Here's a pic, sorry it's not professional grade, but you get the idea. Also, the amber angel eyes are going as soon as I can get the new ones in.

2 questions so far and probably many more to come, any response would be greatly appreciated:
  1. The vehicle came equipped with the smartphone integration kit/cradle; any chance this is compatible with a Samsung Galaxy Note?
  2. Can't find a way to mute the phone while on a call....is this not an option?

Still working my way through the plethera of information but thought I would pose the question here.

Plenty more to come, and please forgive my ignorance......I'm new to the family!

Thanks!
Cigarman

Welcome and congrats!

1. No, don't think they have a cradle for galaxy notes.
2. I thought there was a little microphone icon to click to mute? I'll check when I drive my beast in a couple hours.

Thanks for the response.

Hmmmmmm. Again, please forgive my ignorance, but I dont see that choice? Do you have a newer model?

Can you list out the iDrive steps that get you to that screen??

Sorry for the trouble!

When you place or receive a call, it's just one of the five options in the TEL screen...

I have a '13 with the latest iDrive... here is my version info:

That has to be be the issue......the later software version.

I think I will check with the dealer if my system can accept a software upgrade.

Hey dingular, thanks for putting fourth the effort!!

Love this forum.

Thanks.

Cigarman!

I was on a conference call the other day (in my 2011) and was wondering the same thing. I thought about since then, but haven't tried it yet: Maybe pressing in on the volume knob will mute you while on a call? Either that, or it will mute them!

Hope it works!

Tried it today... turns out it mutes neither party!
But it does toggle the on screen 'speaker with a slash through it' icon. Must just be for muting other audio
