  1. Hi All, So, I have a 5 series with the following options 6AA Bmw Teleservices Bmw Teleservices 6AB Control Teleservices Steuerung Teleservices 6FL Usb/audio Interface Usbaudioschnittstelle 6VC Control Combox Steuerung Combox 609 Navigation System Professional Navigationssystem Professional 612 Bmw Assist Bmw Assist 615 Extended Bmw Online Information Erweiterte Bmw Online Information 616 Bmw Online Bmw Online I have been trying to get the connected drive app to work on my iphone but it never really seems to do anything or give me any options. MY car is an 11 plate 525d msport and im just wondering if anyone else has had any luck getting this working?? even if its for things like fuel left etc I have registered my car with BMW themselves so it shows the car and VIN in the app, but it just does nothing.. I suspect I need a subscription but cant find a clear answer on this.. Any help much appreciated
  2. Hi All, New to the site so a big hello. I've upgraded from my old E46 325i saloon which was a brilliant car and lovely to driving but was not big enough for the family. So I've gone and bought a 2009 530D M Sport Touring and I love it (I'm sure i'm not the only one that's done this). The car is so more refined that the old E46 and i'm loving all the toys like the pro nav etc, which's brings me to my question. I have a iPhone 5C which connects via Bluetooth to the car and works fine for calls but the phones address book does not sync. I've tried deleting the phone from the car and the same on the phone but no joy. The car just has the syncing symbol even after over an hours drive. I'm kind of lost for ideas and can not find anything on Google so thought i would ask you kind people. Any help would be appreciated. Kind regards Giles
  3. I'd been looking to dock my iPhone 5 securely & easily in my 2006 E60, allowing me to play music through the OEM head unit while keeping the phone charged. However, having spent far too much on tweeters, subs and amps recently I either had to wait or find a cheap alternative...so I accepted I wouldn't be able to control via iDrive and waited a couple of days for the cheap parts to arrive: iPhone 5 dock with 3.5mm plug (£4) Small piece of stainless steel (free at local metal works) 3.5mm male to male lead (£3 2A cigarette light charger with iPhone 5 lead (£3) Steps: Removed trim around ashtray (plenty of guides online for that) Cut a hole in the stainless, shaped it to bolt under the centre console trim in place of the ashtray. Glued the iPhone dock to the stainless steel. Connected 3.5mm cable to rear aux input and hid under the console, popping up where the ashtray was. Connected in-car charger. Put console trim back together. (By the way, I had no USB or jack connections under the arm rest) End result looks like this (note the ashtray lid still shuts too, so completely hidden when not in use): A notable downside for some people is the charger seems to interfere with radio signal (weakens it).

    Iphone pairing problems

    Took delivery last week of a 2004 E60 530i Se Auto. I am new to the E60. The problem I have is getting my older iphone to pair. The idrive see's the phone but will not pair. I have tried other phones (Samsung and HTC) no problem they pair first time. I have been down to the local dealer (Bowkers) not helpful. So I am crying for help please. Anything would be helpful.
  5. Just picked up a 525d Msport as a replacement for my 335i Coupe. Generally like the car a lot, the whole package seems so much more modern that my 2007 coupe. Just missing the outright power of the 335 versus the 525d, but I am getting used to it. I have a question for readers, when using my iPhone as the audio device, it will display the album art as a large picture in the main window for new albums. It won't however shrink to the smaller picture in the top right of the main window after that (as shown in the BMW brochures) any ideas? Also on the sat nav, when I have reached my destination, the smart panel display below the speedo/tacho continues to display directional arrows and distance? This again, seems wrong. Is this a fault? If anyone can provide any information about these issues it will be greatly appreciated before I take it back into the dealers.
