Playing IOS App through car stereo
 
A radio station I enjoy when I am in its region has an iphone App that plays its programming. Is it possible to play the music from the app through my BMW?

I don't believe that this app would be supported in Carplay, and it's not the same as playing itunes through the bluetooth connection.

Play app via USB or Bluetooth Audio. No need of CarPlay for this.

Thanks, that's the info I was looking for and I tried it out and it worked fine through BT audio.

I did notice that I had to turn my iPhone up to full volume and turn the car's volume control much higher than other media sources.

All in all, it works well. I was going to try using the TuneIn app which is supported through CarPlay.

If you connect via cable you'll probably find the source is louder.
