iPhone 5 / Bluetooth Audio problem

When pairing my iPhone 5 via Bluetooth to iDrive, only the "Telephone" feature comes up, and not the "Media". I want to play my music thru Bluetooth. Anyone know why my car isn't giving me the Media connection option? Any suggestions?

Do you have enhanced Bluetooth? It was an additional option in 12 I believe.

BMW Assist must be factory installed for A2DP to work.

You need to enable Bluetooth Audio before adding your phone.

Go to Media, scroll down to find Bluetooth Audio.

Remove the bluetooth connection to your car from the iPhone and add it again. Now you can select Audio.

We discussed this with you back in October. You don't have BMW Assist w/Enhanced Bluetooth & USB so this isn't going to work on your car. Bluetooth audio is a premium feature.
