Can Only Use Bluetooth For Phone Calls

Whatsup everyone,

I am just about ready to give up but thought I had try here, I have an 07 328i coupe and I am trying to stream music through my bluetooth but cannot find any functions to make it work. I can only make phone calls.

How can I stream music through my bluetooth system? I do not have iDrive, but have an aux port.

Also, I don't have an USB port, is there a way I can install it now?

thanks.

An 07 has no built in music streaming function.

BMW just got that going in the last 2 years and if you want to do
the factory retrofit its convoluted and expensive.
There are two ways to go that make some kind of sense.
Get a Dension 500s bt or
you can get one of the cheap devices that allow you to steam through
the aux input such as a Blackberry gateway.

Or for the price of the denison, you can get an aftermarket double din with nav, usb, hd radio, bluetooth and more.

I just bought a Bluetooth device that goes on the end of the iPod connector. Turn it on each time you get in the car and it lets you stream music through Bluetooth. It was $30ish or so at target. Works well too.
