Question Does your Galaxy Nexus Stream Audio to the F30?

I got my F30 335i yesterday and so far, although it says it's enabled for audio streaming, I can't get a sound out of it - is this an Ice Cream Sandwich / Galaxy Nexus issue with the F30?

I believe it's only compatible with Apple iOS right now. My understanding is Android compatibility may be added at some time, but haven't heard of anything further on it.

Why not just use a cheap USB stick ?

I like to download podcasts daily and so having 3G in the car and not having to take the USB stick indoors each day is the most convenient...

Bluetooth streaming audio is not dependent on the iPhone to my knowledge.

Ok.
have never downloaded podcasts so didnt think of them.


Checked the galaxy Nexus on the online BMW Bluetooth Compatibility chart and it says Bluetooth Audio is not possible on the Nexus.

It does work on the Galaxy S

I have an S2 (custom ICS ROM, stock Samsung music player) and Bluetooth audio enabled and it works a treat. Plays tracks, shows artist/album/track/track number and can skip tracks using the dial.

All I did to set it up was pair the phone and make sure audio was checked (I unchecked data transfer).

FYI, using Vlingo for voice commands as wasn't having much joy with the BMW commands, its awesome.

I don't have a Galaxy Nexus but a Galaxy S (the first one) and it streams audio without any problem.

When you set up the bluetooth, you do indeed have to make sure audio is selected or it wont work

I can now stream bluetooth audio from my Galaxy Nexus, however pausing/resuming tracks doesn't seem possible, just skipping tracks...

I think that's by design. You can check the possibilities for your phone here: http://www.bmwusa.com/Standard/Conte...hframedin.aspx ..a quick check showed me the following:

Audio playback via Bluetooth
Playing audio tracks

Operation via Control Display
- The "Fast forward/reverse" function is not supported.

Display of title information
- The length of 'play' time is not displayed
