  2. F20 / F21 1 Series (2012 - Current)
    Hi all, im Toni from Switzerland! Just wanted to tell you about how tired I was of having my BMW F21 from 2013 with an old interface system that couldn't even reproduce songs from spotify. I felt like my car still looked and ran really good, but the digital part was getting kind of old. I heard...

    hello all, this is my first post here. i am trying to fix an issue my friend has caused on his 2007 x5 by being a little bit dumb and rather than unplugging the phone dock in the armrest he has removed it and cut the wires. ever since he has done this he has been getting a sos service...
  4. E63 / E64 6 Series (2004 - 2010)
    I'd like to get rid of the silly mobile phone holder/tray/flap from my center console storage bin. Is it possible to do this cleanly? It looks like there's some cloth lining glued to the hinge area of the phone tray. Anyone done this?

    I have a 2012 328-I hard top convertible with navigation, bluetooth and bmw assist, hard drive music. It's been interesting to find that the blue tooth died after awhile, but everything else works fine. I removed the unit, which in this car is a bit of a pain as it's located between the back...

    My bluetooth module died. I've a 2012 328-I hard top convertible. Does anyone know where it's located and can I buy a used one and plug and play? I've seen them used on ebay for $50-150 for a module. Appears to be Harmon Kardon. I think the bmw stealer wanted about $1200 and said they would...
  7. E36/7 Z3 (1996-2002)
    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...
  8. X3 E83 (2004 - 2010)
    I know there are a bunch of threads related to pairing phones with bluetooth but I can't find an answer to how to get my X3 into "Activate" mode at start up. I have a 2007 X3 with the R/T button on the steering wheel. I have the PK. I used to have a phone paired with the vehicle, but now I can't...
  9. E70 X5 M and E71 X6 M (2010 - 2015)
    I have a strange problem with my bluetooth phones. I had 4 phones (MAX) paired. I updated my software to the latest and all the phones are missing in the list now. The phone still connects but if I try to play music or messages from the phone the system thinks that there is no phone and asks me...
  10. E82 / E87 / E88 / F20 1 Series (2008 - 2014)
    Hi all, I have just purchased a 2008 130i, which has the included idrive(?) system? With the pop up screen and control knob beside the handbrake. Whilst removing the centre console to fix my shifter wires (pesky 20 gauge wires!), I noticed that there was a socket behind the folding armrest...
  11. 7 Series - E65 / E66 (2002 - 2008)
    Hello all, My 2007 BMW 750i is missing the 'Phone' option in the settings menu. The iDrive system has the 'Phone Connected?' label along the top bar, and the 'Communications' and 'BMW Assist' menus all require a phone to be connected, yet strangely enough the option seems to have vanished? I...
  12. E90/E91/E92/E93 (2006 - 2013)
    A few days ago I got in my car, started it up and I am not able to tune my radio. The dashboard shows it's there but makes me go through FM/AM then manual and no stations appear. Same for Bluetooth/phone. When I choose it, it just says Connecting and never does. Then I realized when I start up...
  13. G30 (2017 - Current)
    I put in my order Saturday for a 2018 530i (waited to get the power tailgate and total digital dash amongst other items.) One thing I really want is the wireless charging for my phone. I see in the online configurator that is still up for the 2017s that wireless charging is included with the...

    Hi , I had a faulty Radio unit, so I changed for exactly the same part number and model , albeit a used one . However I now switch on and the CD works but I have lost the TELEPHONE option on the display and also the AUX option. Also I am not receiving any signal over the radio frequencies...

    I bought my very 1st BMW. It is a 2003 X5 3.0i. Thanks! I am trying to pair my iPhone 5s. I have a face on the bottom left of the steering wheel and a phone button on the radio. No navigation system in the vehicle. There is a microphone on the right of the sunroof control panel headliner...

    I have a 2011 BMW 335i with USB and iDrive. I have been reading on the forums about retro fitting Bluetooth. What I have read is that is should be pre wired but just needs to be enabled. I called my local dealer and they told me there was no retro fit for my car. Has anyone messed with this...
  18. X3 E83 (2004 - 2010)
    I recently purchased a 2004 X3 3.0 from a private dealer last year in February. Everything worked until the car was used and needed several repairs. However, with the exception of the battery needing to be changed, my bluetooth worked for a while, then stopped and never came back. My gps...

    I have a 2004 BMW X3, which I purchased last year, used, yes, however, Im still learning and using all of its features. My problem, my gps and bluetooth disappears on me. In other words, when I reset my computer for repairs, the gps comes back but if battery failure, it never loads and I cant...

My goal is to get a Bluetooth adapter that will work with my factory 16:9 Nav and steering wheel controls. (Both music and phone) A plus would be USB for playing music. Here are the options...
