Thumbs down android phone bluetooth won't work well with iDrive

Hey guys!

Happy holidays!
I have a Samsung Galaxy Note 2 with 4.1.1 The bluetooth connection is pretty awful. My iDrive doesn't display any info, the next button won't work. Phone book is all messed up. I also try htc droid DNA 4.1.1. Pretty similar poor results. My iPhone 4s works excellent with my car. Is there anything I could do about this? I don't want to give up the android phones just yet.

Does yours show Album info, music playing, artist? 03/13 songs, etc?
How about your contacts, etc.

No issues with my Galaxy Note 2 (Android 4.1.2) able to use address book, text messages, music control, song display. Also had no issues previously with HTC G2 (Android 4.0).

When you connected your phone the first time, did you get any permissions popups on your phone to allow your car access? (you gotta hit accept/yes to those)

thanks Borisimo, Since this M3 is in Taiwan. I think the software is different E90/E92/E93. It supports iPhone with no errors. It is not that compatible with Droid DNA and Note 2. I am gonna call 1-800 tomorrow.
