Pandora

Just picked up a 2013 X5 5.0 Msport. When I use Pandora with Bluetooth I get artist and title info (no album art) and can scroll ahead or back in the Idrive. When I hook it up with the USB in the center console it works great for the first song with artist, title, album, and album art. When the second track plays the artist, etc. remain on the first song. I also can't scroll. Any thoughts or advice. I would like to use the USB connection so I can keep the battery fresh. I have an IPhone 4S with iOS 5.1.1. By the way the USB/Pandora connection works fine on my 991?? Thanks.

Really?, on my 2013 X5M, when I connected my IPhone 5 or my wife 4S thru USB and Connected Drive App, I get song title/album art, like or dislike song choice, pretty much all the control on the Pandora app as in the IPhone.

In order to get the functionality of the App I connect to the USB plug and then select Pandora under the Radio sub menu. Also, my iPhone shows a different screen. If I exit the app or even turn the phone off(sleep) it disconnects and stops playing music. I think its a function of "BMW Apps".

So it seems that I need BMW Apps to connect Pandora through the USB plug. If no BMW Apps then I have to use Bluetooth??
