Playing music via bluetooth

I have a 2006 328xi and have my bluetooth setup and also have an aux port. When i'm on the phone and go to my music app, the option to play my music via bluetooth comes up but once i hung up, the option disappears. Anybody know how i can play my music via bluetooth at all times?

Unfortunately, the bluetooth profile of early E90s (I have essentially the same thing in my 330i) is setup for phone operation only. I added one of these:

to the aux port in my console. Now I can play audio from my bluetooth phone (Android) over the AUX port:

Both devices can be connected at once (assuming your phone supports it); one as A2DP audio and the other as phone headset. If you get a phone call, the car will mute the AUX (and your phone should mute it too if it is the bluetooth audio source) during the duration of the call, after which, the audio will resume.

As far as I know, no A2DP devices initiate the connection so you have to do it manually. If you have an android, there is an app (BT Volume I think it's called) that will use some weird voodoo to figure out when you're in your car and attempt to connect. I have an app called Tasker and I set it to monitor for the phone's connection and when it sees that, it connects the audio to the A2DP device. I'm pretty sure there are apps for iphone to get around this too.

Look into blackberry gateway. It hooks up to your aux/USB and auto syncs when you turn on the car. Just press play on your device and qualit is fantastic. It streams digital so no audible loss of quality. I love it

I got the same unit, but I experience problems. It seems that if my iPhone is too close (?) to the device I get choppy sound (it skips). Have you experienced anything similar?
