Album Art 2010 E92

Hey guys,

Any ideas on whether or not 2010 E92s can display album art through the USB stick for audio?

I have idrive and CIC if that helps. While doing the forum search I came across the term "combox" but I'm not really familiar with what that is.

Hi there

All BMW before 2013 needs Combox to display album art and various other bluetooth upgrade. Combox is a hardware that will replace your existing bluetooth module. You can retrofit Combox and best place to shop is bimmer-tech.net Patrys is am amazing guy to help you out

Hey, thanks for the info. For album art, I think the price is a little steep (all I want is album art, don't really care for the other features). I'll probably get around to this after I do some other mods first (rear camera mainly ).

If you send us your VIN we will check what can be retrofitted in your car

Just in case others read this thread, M3's starting with Sept 2010 production (the infamous MY2011.5!) were available with the combox and can display album art as long as the car is properly equipped... My car was built in Sept 2010 with the combox and I can display album art on my iDrive screen.
