Hi folks:

I have a 2014 535d and an iPhone 6+ with current iOS 8.1.2

I am having an impossible time with the devices communicating properly. Yes, you can make a phone call. However, forget about using podcasts, or switching between podcasts or songs, or fast forwarding or rewinding. It's an absolute mess. Does anyone have any ideas?

Similar experience, only not limited to the latest iOS. The BMW integration, when hard-wire connected, seems to want to play music from the iPhone's onboard library (the iPod part). It won't let you play music from another source on the iPhone without cutting back to the iPod music after a second or two.

If you run the connection via Bluetooth, all of that works fine - but then you lose the advantage of the BMW Connect functionality.
