Mein Auto: 328i
Bluetooth music disabled EVERYTIME I plug my phone to USB

I'm not alone in being very annoyed by this.

On my [02/2014, S. Africa, no NAV, flashed 6NH to 6NL, latest firmware update] 328i, every time I plug my phone to USB, it disables Bluetooth playback PERMANENTLY until I go dig through a whole bunch of menus and recheck a checkbox before it's selectable again under multimedia sources! I cannot charge my phone while using bluetooth music, for example.

This is just ridiculous. My old VW would just start playing my phone's playlist/podcast automatically as long as BT was selected. When I selected USB audio, it would switch to that, and vice versa, seemlessly. AS GOD INTENDED!

My question is: Why does BMW blaspheme against the almighty? And is there any way I can fix this nonsense by coding something or other?

Try to change to 6NS and VO the NBT, which will solve your issue

I got the first part, but what does "VO the NBT" mean? Can you expand a bit on that? I'm still not superfamiliar with the bmw coding jargon

Connect => Read FA (VO) => Activate FA (VO) => Read SVT (VCM) => Right-Click on HU_NBT (the ECU itself not the underlying CAFD) => Select CODE.

Is there a way to do this on F25?

VO Code? Yes, it is the same process for any Fxx car.

Just did that. Made zero difference. Bluetooth is still disabled when USB is plugged in.

In my case, it's HU_ENTRY.

I have HU_CHAMP2 with 6NS and same issue. It is so annoying. My other car (Acura) doesn't have this problem. I can even listen to Bluetooth audio while the USB charges my phone. Wish there was way to do the same in my F25.

I have F25 with 6NL and 6NR, which is enhanced BT and BMW Apps. I wasn't sure about replacing 6NL but from the previous post it looks like it might not. When I get some spare time I'll give it a try anyway and post my results.
