Is there a fix for reading non english song information?

My m3 connects to my iphone perfectly, only problem is it doesn't read anything but english. All the asian information is shown as "?????". Is there a fix for this?

Only Asia BMW can display BIG-5 Character. If you install Asia M-Drive system, BMW canada will void the car's warrantly due to BMW's North America standard.

Most aftermarket car audio gear sold in North America doesn't support it either. Its an industry wide issue not just BMW or their OEM supplier.

My wife's ML350 displays Asian language from iPhone.
