bluetooth/usb 6NH vs 6NK (& 6NF)

Hi guys

I'm planning on buying a F20. Went to three dealers and none of them were able to give the correct information about the bluetooth/usb story and the BMW website doesn't help either.

My question: i've got an iphone (4s), is it possible to make calls & listen to music with the 6NH bluetooth & usb option? I'm not looking for something to charge my devices.
Because no one could say, they added the 6NK & 6NF options. But that means that i also need a snap-in adapter.

So, anyone who has had any experiences with these option? What are the differences between 6NH and the 6NK/6NF combo? Will the 6NH display songtitles on the display? Does it offer control via iDrive?


Thanks in advance!

I'm not 100% sure about those Bluetooth you previously said but this is how I managed to have my music and phone via Bluetooth in my car.

I have a BMW 118i that has Bluetooth only for calls so it doesn't work for me
But my car also has USB/aux connectivity.
So I have an USB/aux cable plugged into the car and this cable connected to this device http://www.ebay.com/itm/Bluetooth-A2...item27c50f56a5

I make the phone talk to this receiver via Bluetooth and I use a snap in adapter for the hands free.


Hope this helps

@franchicob: Hows the Sound quality? I have recently purchased Blackberry Music Gateway and not happy with the purchase. Output sound is too low. Please suggest.

Hi mate

Yeap it's was sounding very good but after a while started making a wierd sound so I replace the USB/AUX cable + buetooth device for a single Bluetooth receiver - see below

http://item.mobileweb.ebay.com/viewi...d=190859943704

The Bluetooth receiver above can be used while charging so you can keep it plugged into the USB for constant power supply.

In regards the sound quality I'm not a expert in sound quality but for me it sounds really good and I'm very happy with it.

Cheers
