Mein Auto: 2001 3.0i X5
iPhone 5 Compatibility

Hello All! Just picked up a 2011 X6 3.5. Loving it so far! Lots of questions that I will search this forum for answers. I started with this one, but couldn't find anything. Regarding iPhone 5 compatibility: when I connect my phone to the usb ports (in the glove box or the center console), I get a "not supported" message on the display screen. I checked for updates and according to the BMW site, I'm up to date. Anyone else encounter this and figured a way around it? Please keep in mind the bluetooth connection (for phone....I don't have streaming capability) works just fine.

Nope. I had the same issue. It doesn't work. You have to use the aux front port. Congrats on the new ride. I have the same one. Enjoy

Savior: thanks for the reply. So I'm clear, when you say you have to plug it into the front aux port, that's the one in the glove box, correct? If yes, I did that and it still doesn't work.

Not a good solution for me. That would require disconnecting blue tooth from car.

Savior: Not at all! The standard bluetooth works just fine. This solution is strictly for streaming. As a matter of fact, it even pauses when I get a call on the other bluetooth.
