Playing songs over Bluetooth : 2011 328i

Hello,

I have a 2011 328i sedan with Premium Package and Value package. The car has BMW assist with ENHANCED BLUETOOTH.

Many people have said me that I should be able to play songs from my iPhone over bluetooth. I have tried looking for it but could not do it. Does someone know how to do it ?

Thanks

Nah but it makes it easier to pair it for Bluetooth audio streaming. Play with your Bluetooth audio settings. For some odd reason connecting "phone" bluetooth wouldn't automatically connect the A2DP function...at least that's how it is on my car with iDrive

I dont happen to see any Bluetooth audio settings. Is there some guide or some steps listed somewhere which I could follow to try that out ?
Even the manual doesn't list anything for that.

Do you have your build sheet available? Bluetooth streaming requires Combox (option code 6VC), and I'm not sure that's included if you don't get iDrive. If you see that listed or don't have your build sheet but want to continue investigating, I imagine setting it up without iDrive if it's possible at all would involve choosing BT Audio as a source on your stereo and then pairing your phone at that point -- or maybe the pairing interface is under Settings somewhere? Sorry, I haven't played with the non-iDrive stereo very much so I'm working from a pretty rusty memory and conjecture.

I don't know if this will help you or not. Everytime I turned on my bluetooth, I have to go into the phone setting and manually turn on bluetooth audio in order to stream music thru my iphone. I do have an idrive car though.

Pair the phone with the car. Make sure both phone and audio boxes are checked in the display once sucessfully paired. Then hit the CD button on the controls. Select your phone and it should play via blue tooth. Mine works just fine that way.

This was introduced for 2011.5, so make sure your car's production was 9/2010 or later. If it was earlier, you can't stream audio over Bluetooth.
