Most likely your image format is not ok for the car to display. Really high-res images won't display. I don't know if the max image quality is documented or not, but even embedding JPG > 1000px x 1000px don't seem to display.

I usually do JPG, 600x600, quality = 75. That always works, and 600x600 is plenty larger than the iDrive screen's resolution and iPhone/iPad is still good quality.
