iOS 7 Music Playback on 2014 NBT

Does anyone have problems playing non-native music apps over USB or Bluetooth? The album art work and song/artist info does not update for me after playing the first song on Spotify or Pandora, for example. I have iOS 7 and a 2014 with Tech package.

Yep, seen that with a 5S and the Spotify app.

I found a cheap fix, but it's better than nothing. If you move the iDrive knob to the right or press option when on the album artwork/track info screen and toggle the "Random" setting (off -> on or on -> off) it will update to the current song.

My iPhone 5S does this sometimes when I am playing iTunes Radio. It will not update the album after the first song.

Welcome to the frustrating world of Idrive/Spotify problems.
This happens to me too, been long discussed on the spotify forum but no solutions yet.

I have a new issue now too, on songs from my own collection (ripped songs in my library on spotify thus not found on Spotify itself), the music stops randomly and the iphone gets disconnected. Pushing the media button or play again on spotify starts it up again. These are local files and i'm playing in offline mode...

App that does work?

Has anyone used an app that does work with album art and/or song info over Bluetooth? I.E. Beats, Rhapsody, Rdio, etc?

I have this same problem. Looking for a fix but can't find one. Let me try the toggle maneuver.

That's a good work around. I'll try with iTunes radio. Thanks.

On a slightly different topic, my iPhone 5 running iOS 7 seems to crash from time to time whilst playing music (standard Music app. for iPhone). This happens irrespective of whether playing over Bluetooth or via Lightning cable.

Anyone else have similar issues?

I'm experiencing the same issue on my M235. I'm going to be pretty bummed if this isn't addressed with an update. I have access to iOS8. I'll give that a try this weekend and report back if it fixes it. I'm afraid it is a problem with the car though...
