Video: Play music from an iOS device in your BMW – BMW How-To
There are lots of different ways to enjoy music in your BMW. In vehicles with Operating System 7, by selecting “MEDIA” you can see the list of audio sources on the left side. If you want to connect an external device for playing music, for example your smartphone, Bluetooth audio or the USB cable can be used. Two external devices can be used as a Bluetooth streaming audio device. If the Bluetooth device is not listed in the device list, make sure Bluetooth is activated on your smartphone. It could also be that “Bluetooth audio” may not have been activated.
You can do so by selecting “MEDIA”, “Mobile devices”, select the required Bluetooth device and press “Connect now”. In this menu you can also add a new Bluetooth device or delete one. Please be aware that your BMW does not have access to the settings of your smartphone. That’s why it’s best to change the volume on your smartphone, before you change it in the vehicle. When playing your music via a USB connection, it is best to use the cable supplied with your USB device. Connect the USB device to the USB interface. Select “MEDIA”, “USB” or the name of the USB device. Select the preferred external device and enjoy your music while your device is being charged.
