Sorry if this has been asked before
I have just purchased a 2012 320d sport and I'm struggling to get my iPhone to play music via usb (phone is iPhone X)
I have used an original apple cable and each time it says that it is not supported
I have checked for software updates and it says my vehicle isn't due any

Can anyone shed any light on how to get music playing via usb and not having to use a phone cable

Hello all, new member here. I have a new 2018 330i w/ xDrive, and I am using BimmerCode. I have had success with a few items, but I am having difficulty with the following. Any help would be much appreciated.

1.) Full text messages on iDrive screen
2.) Screen mirror to watch Netflix, etc. (I have an iPhone 8)
3.) Fog lights on automatically with DRL.

Thank you all in advance.

New member here.

Has there been any updates on how to play music on a '13 328i through Bluetooth on an iPhone? I can get Bluetooth audio just fine so I can make calls and such but can no longer play music wirelessly. It was fine until a few years ago when iOS 9 or 10 came out.

I tried the search bar and saw that a few other people have had the issue too; however, I didn't see anything that explicitly says how to fix this.

I had a very unusual experience in my F30 328i that I have not been able to replicate since. I do not appear to have the ability to stream music through blue tooth on my iphone, though I can use it to make calls over the speaker system.

I have a pair of Sennheiser wireless ear buds (bluetooth). I recently started my car while listening to a podcast and my phone paired with the car's audio system and started playing it through the speakers! I have never had the option to do this in the past.

The truly bizarre part was my car was acting like this was a phone call, it popped up that I was calling my own phone, had the timer running, etc... It also messed up something on my iphone (xr) because after I left my car I could barely get any audio out of my speakers. I later restarted my iphone and since then have not been able stream through bluetooth. Any thoughts on what might have happened?​

I have the same issue with Bluetooth audio randomly not working. For some reason the Bluetooth "audio" option is shown as deselected in the iDrive bluetooth options screen. this happens randomly for some reason. When this happens my phone is still connected via Bluetooth but can only pick up phone calls and cannot stream music.

Two things you can do....you can simply select the Bluetooth audio option and reestablish the connection and ability to stream music. Or you can always erase your phone from iDrive and set up again as a new phone. This will also fix the issue.

ive tried erasing my phone multiple times as well as new phones but i still cant get the bluetooth music streaming to work. could you walk me through how you did it so music streaming is possible? i also have a '13 328i xdrive model but none of the tech package stuff.

Hello, new here. We (my wife really) have just bought a nearly new F31 (may 19) with prof media. However, looking into what I can do I was surprised that I can't stream music/podcasts via Bluetooth. Are there any options to enable that?
