  2. F10 / F11 (2011 - 2016)
    Hi all!! I have a F10 535i 2010/2011 (prod. date 2010/04), updated to the latest sw version (as far the dealer told me). I was using the bluetooth handsfree with my Samsung Galaxy S4, Samsung Galaxy S2, and my Xperia X10, without any issue at all. Only phone, I don't have A2DP for streaming...
  3. F10 / F11 (2011 - 2016)
    My wife just got a 2014 528ix. I was setting up her phone for her. The dealer and many people have told her see could view her incoming txt on her Main Screen and Heads up Display while driving. So far I have not been able to make that happen. Using a Bluetooth setup she can receive calls...
  4. F30 / F31 / F32 / F33 / F34 / F36 (2012 - current)
    I drive 2012 328i and it's been a pain in the butt to not be able to use iDrive like I used to when I had iPhone 4 (I currently have iPhone 5). They had to take in my car for brake changes and etc. for a few days so I had the X3 2014 as a rental. This was when I noticed the new iDrive was just...
  5. F30 / F31 / F32 / F33 / F34 / F36 (2012 - current)
    :thumbdwn: In my opinion BMW is taking way too long to release iPhone adapters and updates for Apple iPhone 5 & 5S models. Is it time for the tech guys at BMW to rethink their strategy on technology? The latest iPhone5 has been out for over a year and the only adapter available for BMW's is a...
  6. E90/E91/E92/E93 (2006 - 2013)
    Hi All, I have a 2010 328xi and I am not sure how to stream music (via iPhone 5 - pandora, spotify, iTunes, etc.) without using that annoying auxiliary chord. Phone calls using bluetooth work just fine. Was wondering if there's a way to get it to work with my music sans the chord. Any ideas...
  7. E90/E91/E92/E93 (2006 - 2013)
    Hi everyone, my iPhone 5 has paired with my iDrive just fine. Then, recently, the radio occasionally mutes (iDrive and all display stays on), the green SOS light stays on for a second or two, and after about 10-15 seconds the radio sounds comes back on. The sound cuts out no matter if there is a...
  8. General BMW Questions
    Hello. I was wondering if anybody else had difficulty playing music from their iPhone 5 with the idrive on the 2014 328i model? It syncs into Bluetooth and recognizes my contacts but will not recognize my music with either the Bluetooth connection nor USB connection. Sorry if this question...
  9. F30 / F31 / F32 / F33 / F34 / F36 (2012 - current)
    So here's the deal... I custom ordered a BMW 320xi through my dealer. I told him specifically: the only option I care about is being able to plug in my iPhone via USB and access content (mp3s, audio books, apps with audio output, etc) FROM the phone and mount it on the dash (NOT in the arm...
  10. X3 F25 (2011 - 2017)
    Hi, I drive a 2012 BMW X3 and love to play Pandora in my car - I have an iPhone 5 with the latest OS (6.1.4 I believe) and connect it via a lightning cable. The issue I have is, when I plug it in and start playing a song, the name of the *first* song will get displayed on the BMW screen (most...
  11. E90/E91/E92/E93 (2006 - 2013)
    ** UPDATE: Problem Solved, see post #8 for resolution ** I updated my iPhone software to IOS 6.1.4 and my phone contact list stopped synching with my iDrive. The only contact listing that displays in iDrive is the "My Number" listing of which I don't need to know! I synch my iPhone with iCloud...

    http://www.bimmerfest.com/forums/attachment.php?attachmentid=369616&d=1365091642 Despite being out for over 6 months BMW owners still do not have the ability to snap their iPhone into their cars. The BMW Snap-In adapter not only charges the phone but allows access to your MP3s and connects...
  14. E60 M5 (2006 - 2010)
    08 M5.....I recently performed the update to ios 6.1.3. Ever since, I can no longer control my iPhone from the steering wheel controls and the song title does not appear in the display. You can still listen to music through the aux input but no controls. Bluetooth and charging still works. I...
  15. X1 E84 (2011 - 2015)
    I've got my new X1 with the tech package. However, I did not order the BMW apps. So I resigned myself to the fact that my iPhone 5 will not be able to download my text messages on the idrive display and BMW office would not work. However, yesterday my husband's android phone was synched...
  16. E90/E91/E92/E93 (2006 - 2013)
    I was at dealership yesterday and nobody could answer this question! WTF? They all had different opinions. It was like bad comedy. So I searched on here and never could find definitive answer. Maybe someone can give simple answer to these two questions if possible. So here goes: 1) If BMW...
