I have the AirEnabler Adapter Kit in my 335i with logic 7; I also have a small amp attached to it as well.

Problem is the iPhone 8 recognizes the air enabler wifi signal but it won't hook up to it.

So,

option 1

option 2

https://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B01N5FOVAJ?psc=1

I still want to use the FIO amp I have. I think it brings a lot to the table in terms of sound quality and enhancement.

Whats your thoughts?

Is there another reasonably priced option ?

The links seem to be for the same product.

Iím guessing you are not pre-wired for BT? What exactly is your goal? Will going out from your phone to carís usb not an option?

I don?t have a usb option. So, I must use a Bluetooth or WiFi connection. WiFi is uncompressed which is ideal for the logic 7 system.

I have had edited my option 2 above.

Please click on the link and let me know what you think.

You should check if the DNLA receiver supports fixed IP allocation and acting as an access point, instead of just a client device.

By default it will be looking for a Wifi DHCP server to assign it addresses so you must do so manually.

This will also complicate things for you if you use your iPhone on other Wifi networks since it too will need a fixed configuration to work with the car.

Bluetooth is easier to deal with.

The above advice is sound. Iíll also add that, looking at the way the aircast works, you are sending in an analog signal. It is not much of an upgrade from the days of jacking into an aux in plug on a stereo head unit. BT will be much easier to troubleshoot when it happens. If you receive a lot of calls or email, BT could be an issue though.
