bluetooth music

hey guys, so i know the 2011+ m3 model has bluetooth audio so you can listen to music wirelessly. I have a 2009 M3 and havent upgraded my navi since i got the car.

If i want the bluetooth audio is it as simple as upgrading to the 2012 navi, or is it more work?

Thanks

No, it's not easy as upgrading the firmware of the CIC unit. You have an MULF box in the boot of the car along with telephone module. You need to replace both with a combox.

Patryk from Bimmer Tech http://www.bimmer-tech.net/ can help you out.

Recently I upgraded my '07 M3 (CCC unit) with the new CIC unit, HD screen and combox with bluetooth audio streaming. I also got BMW Live and internet. Awesome. Worth every cent. Get in touch with Patryk and he'll help you out.

Just sent Patryk an email requesting his help in retrofitting my (new to me) 08 M3 Sedan... this is great info... Thanks to AussieM3 for sharing... I'm sure quite a few others out there would like to know this is an option.

.... 1st post!

Iphone 4 bluetooth audio problem

I have an issue with the bluetooth audio sometimes does not work.

I got it to work for a while.. then I change my audio source to cd/radio and now I could not get it to work again. I tried to re-paired the phone again, and still nothing. Under the bluetooth setting, I can see the phone icon lit up but not the audio icon. The phone audio is working just fine.

I believe I have IOS 4.

Any thought on what went wrong?

Thanks

A combox upgrade is needed to get BT streaming. It's one of the services we do on a weekly basis.

I have ANYSTREAM device that connects to my iTouch/iPhone cradle in my Jetta. The device works as: manually connect it, find it on your phone via Bluetooth and connect, play some music... say Pandora, and it will stream to your headunit the same as you would be listening to your iTouch device.

However, on my Jetta it didn't work. The late owner of the company foretold me that in certain cases, the device doesn't work-yes unfortunately the owner deceased, and the company closed. My cousin has one and it works both on his MB S class, and his honda; he loves his.

There is another device called Coostream. Works the same way. I'm kind of tempted to buy one for the Jetta.

I hope this is what you are looking for.
