Mein Auto: 2011 X5, 2012 528 xi,
AUDIO Bluetooth

Hello to all,
just purchased 2014 528 xi with M sport pckg. The audio Bluetooth connection keeps disconnecting every 3-5 min. I have the same problem on my 4 as well. In my previous 5 I didn't have the same problem using same iphone 5s.
Two questions : any of you has the same issue and 2- any suggestions how to fix it?

thanks for your reply

The Bluetooth Audio can be funky.

I had an LG G2 and could not get Spotify to work via BT. Regular audio and Pandora worked.

I now have the G3, and all audio apps work.

I could not get Bluetooth Audio to work at all.

Then one day I "fixed" it by launching Pandora. It worked, and then after that, all other audio apps worked too.

Strange coincidence maybe, but I'm not complaining.

I do get occasional drop-outs of less than 1 second but no disconnects.
