I have a 2009 335i with X-Drive and an iPhone 5. Has anyone been able to get Bluetooth audio working on a car like mine?

It is so weird that BMW isn't' prepared for the "state-of-the-art" cell phones on the market. New adapters should be built as the new cell phones come out. I have an Iphone 5 which has the new plug-in. No way it will work. I can still plug the charger into the power source and pair the phone.

It is not the iPhone, it may be your car.

If there is no Combox and Navigation in your car then Bluetooth Audio and the full iPhone intergration will not work.

I don't have the navigation on my 2013 328xi. But I can't believe that paying for an expensive car like this doesn't come with A2DP. I just rented a mazda 3 and it has streaming music over BT. Are you saying that the base model of a 328i does not provide A2DP over BT? I just can't fathom how BMW is getting away with this.

For what this may be worth -

I've found a few helpful tricks/observations in getting my bluetooth audio to stream over my speakers - specifically Audible Audio Books and MP3s on my LG G2 Android device:

1) start the playback on my phone before I even get in the car. It isn't necessary, but it seems as though the car's BT initialization is looking for an active stream on its way up, and it often just works (assuming it was turned off while using the same input source.) Oddly enough it has also been able to just start my audio book for me under some situations, no rolling start needed.

2) Even though my audio system is "on" and already was last pointing at my BT audio, I often find that I have to toggle to radio and then back to the BT source. I do this using one of the physical buttons on my console - I believe it's the Mode button, just right of the FM/AM button. This is the first thing I now try when I get in the car and my BT audio isn't coming through my speakers.

3) There are two inputs that can enable BT playback. One is under the external devices (I think that's the caption) and another is specifically under BlueTooth (Audio). When I first was trying to get it to work, I sometimes found relief hopping from one option to the other, eventhough it's the same device and is already paired under each menu option. I hadn't needed to do this since I started toggling the MODE button mentioned above.

4) My MP3 player seemed to "push harder" than the audio books, and when I first was struggling with it, I would just play an MP3 over BT and then start my audio book leveraging the already established stream. I haven't needed to do this in a long while as well, but it did yield results early on when I'd no experience with the system.

My car was produced on 10/22/2010, if that's a helpful point of reference.
