Issue with iPhone 5 Playing Audio via USB

Hi Everyone,

I have been having an intermittent issue with my iPhone 5 and playing music in my car. When I connect via USB and try to play music from the phone the sound starts playing from the phones speakers and not the car! The iDrive shows the track info and I can control the playback from there but the sound does not go through the car. It is maddening!! The only way I have figured out to get it to work again is to reboot the phone.

I am thinking of taking it to Apple but they will very likely say it is the cars fault. Taking it to BMW would be next to useless as well.

Anyone else have this issue or any suggestions?

Why can't things just work the way they are advertised to??!?
