    I've got a 2015 335i xDrive F30. I've previously used a Samsung Galaxy S9+ just fine with it. I recently upgraded to an iPhone 12 Pro Max, and the media controls are just not working. I can make calls just fine--the car gets the address book and I can place calls with the iDrive system just...

    Hi all; We have a 540xi that is primarily my wife's car. I had created a USB stick with Flac files for times I am driving and that has been great. I am about to take a road trip to Chicago in the car and started fiddling with music options before the drive. The car has the Airplay...
  5. E85 / E86 Z4 (2003-2008)
    My car doesn't have bluetooth. I'm not sure any of the older cars do. In any case, I bought an inexpensive bluetooth device. It's plugged into my cigarette lighter port and easily paired with my Iphone. I now need to connect it to an unused FM frequency. I can't get to one. Everything I do...

  9. F07 Gran Turismo (2010 - 2017)
    My car seems to find around 10 apps for my phone, but none of the 4 I want: WAZE, Play Music (the Google Play Music app) and a podcast app. I believe all the software is up to date on my vehicle and my phone. I understand that BMW might want to force use of their app over WAZE, but, in my...

    On my 2018 F31, been happily (for the most part) using Car Play with my iPhone 6s. I mostly listen to Podcasts and find it useful to use BMW iCOntroller and Car Play to select and navigate the podcasts. Then on Friday, I upgraded to IOS12 and now my iPhone and BMW are not so happy using...

    Hello all, I just bought my first BMW and I'm very excited about it, a 2012 X5. After owning this beast for two days I know why BMW drivers are so loyal now. I wanted to ask if anyone knows anything about the media player and what is the latest version? I'm having trouble updating it using...

    I know this subject has been covered many, many times, but as I am brand new to my ’06 X3, I am finding that the majority of the posted information is dated. I am needing to add an iPhone (7 Plus) interface into my ’06 X3. I have the Business CD installed - No DSP - No Nav - No Sirius I do...
  19. X3 E83 (2004 - 2010)
    I am a new X3 owner, having just acquired an '06, and while I have searched and read the numerous posts here about an iPhone interface, most of the links have expired and the products are unavailable and/or are hard to find. Some of the "experts" I have contacted have even moved on the the BMW...
