If you have Radio Professional it can't be activated.

I hate to bump this but am also wondering what is needed to stream music via bluetooth. I have the following options (I think I grabbed all the audio related ones).

What else would I need to stream? The car is an LCI e92, no Navigation/iDrive. In my instance what does the combox do?

Thanks!

You would need to retrofit the navigation system to use bluetooth streaming.

The Combox is handling your bluetooth phone, and USB port in the center console .

Basically, no navigation = no bluetooth streaming. The Combox is technically capable of bluetooth streaming, but the standard radio lacks the software to access that functionality.

Best bet would get something like Tune2Air, which is what I had to do since I have no Nav.
