iTunes coding

Hi Guys... new to the forum from Ireland. I recently bought an F10 2014 msport. And I can't play my ITunes in the car, it's an iPhone 7. The bluetooth works to make and receive calls, and if the phone is connected with the usb cable it will play sounds from you tube etc. But for some reason the iTunes isn't showing on the screen, so was told it was an extra that wasn't added to the car when the car was made.

I have a guy that said it can be coded, but before I buy the cables etc and pay to get it done, can any of you let me know if this can be fixed by coding?

Thanks

I have never heard of ITunes-specific coding. Are you looking for some kind of ITunes interface on IDrive either via Bluetooth or usb cable?

What is possible depends on existing hardware.

IDrive can read external devices (phones, flash drives, etc) connected via USB port & wirelessly through Bluetooth. The ladder requires Extended Bluetooth (factory or coded). Additionally, you need BMW Apps to support things like Pandora, Spotify, etc.

Do you know if you have HU_NBT or HU_CIC? If you decode VIN, do you have 606 or 609? How about 6NH?

If you have 609 with 6NH, then you need 6NS Extended Bluetooth coded on vehicle.

That's way over my head...; Where would I go to find out what I have?

But looking at the chart you sent me, audio streaming by Bluetooth has got 2 tick's beside them. So would I be right to say, the coding can be done to both types of units. So the right man for the job would be able to get it working for me?

You go to linked website and enter short VIN (last 7 alphanumeric digits). Then check for above referenced numbers (vehicle option codes).

If your screen looks like HU_CIC image, then it depend on if you have secondary combox. If your screen looks like other two, then it is HU_NBT and can definitely be coded. From navigation screen > Select "option" button around IDrive controller > scroll to bottom > select version.
