Mein Auto: 630i
bluetooth and samsung s3

I have the 2010 630i (new idrive). I can connect my blackberry or Samsung s3 via Bluetooth for phone contacts easily.
How do I get it to play music via Bluetooth.

Sorry I think this question has been asked, but the answers are not straightforward.

Thanks again

You have to go to:
  1. highlight and then select (straight down on knob) CD/MULTIMEDIA
  2. go to BLUETOOTH AUDIO, select it
  3. roll down the list to your Samsung Phone, once you are on top of it click your OPTION button on the controller, this will open a secondary screen
  4. Roll down to the option to CONFIGURE PHONE
  5. Once this screen opens up there are two options, TELEPHONE and AUDIO. TELEPHONE is already active with a checkmark, go to AUDIO and select it to activate (checkmark will appear)

You will now see the option to select your Phone when you go to External Devices in your audio menu.

Mark - Does this work on your 06? I thought it was only newer models?

I had a 2011 528i and BT audio was not available. In my 2012 528i it is an option. I think it may not be an option for the 2010 year.
