E63 / E64 6 Series (2004 - 2010)
The E63/E64 BMW 6 Series builds on BMW's sporty heritage with aggressive lines and an incredible motor to back the design up. Available in coupe and convertible trims with a standard 4.8 liter engine producing 360 horsepower and 360 lb-ft of torque, the 6-series is a popular choice that exceeds expectations.

Yet another iPod interface issue

I have a 2010 650 convertible that I replaced the CD changer with interface part number 65410411033. It will play but it cannot be controlled by the steering wheel or the deck. Also the music is not identified either. I have attached a pic of my screen when it is playing.


I really hope I am missing something simple versus taking this thing to the dealer.

Have you tried it with an older iPhone or iPod? Don't forget that the iPod interface is at least 6 year old technology. In technology terms 6 years is a very long time.
The issue may be down to this gap. That's the first thing I would be checking. The other thing to check is which "CD" number you are choosing from the menu.

Still no control or music id. My iPod nano uses the 30 pin so it plugs right in without the adaptor required for my iPhone 6 Plus. I can't figure out this $300 part!

The "disc" selection on the idrive screen is simply labeled "songs". The number 6 key On the head unit just changes to fm mode. It just stays stuck on "please wait"

I loaded the same music to the internal drive via flash drive and it plays fine and displays all info.

I don't get it
