Bluetooth won't display correct music information

Hi, this might be petty but I really want it to start working.

I use my Bluetooth function to connect my Galaxy S5's Spotify music to my car. On the screen, it just shows "Unknown Album" and " Unknown Artist". I know it works though because sometimes it displays the actual artist and song but then it doesn't update when the song changes.

What can I do?

Does it do this when you first start your drive or while you are currently driving?

If it is when you first start out, try switching to radio and then back to spotify with idrive. That typically fixes any issues that I might have with bluetooth streaming.

It does it throughout the whole drive. Even after driving 20 minutes, I never see the music information. Only some rare drives, I start the Bluetooth then I see music information for the first song. After that song, its stuck on the first song.

Dont know what year X5 you have but if its post 3/2010 production then head over to http://www.bmw.com/update. Get the latest firmware copied to a usb stick formatted in fat32 and plug into multimedia port in center console and run the update from idrive. May fix these issues.

Mine does the same thing. Also, I can only click on the FWD icon once to move to the next song. I can change the music on my phone; however ,the X5 display never changes. My X5 built on 1/14/2011. At least I can hear the music through the bluetooth connection.
