It is the first time I’ve ever even sat in a BMW, not bad. Gonna have to go through this manual to figure out how to listen to music through my phone tho. This infotainment system is not awesome.

Congrats!!
Unfortunately for me, BMW's infotainment system caters mostly to apple car play. I can still connect bluetooth to my Pixel 3 phone but I definitely miss out on all the other quirks and features. I will die on this Android hill :p

Okay, it’s Friday and I’m bored. 2014 M235i that I literally know almost nothing about. But it’s fun to drive and gets better than 8.8mpg’s. So it’s the new daily. It needs some Gav'sPurpleZ Gav'sPurpleZ detailing but seems to be in decent shape for the most part. Only plans right now is winter tires because it will be my winter bitch.

Fantastic color! I've wanted one of these for a long time. So don't beat on it too hard, that way you can sell it to me later 👍

Connect phone to usb, doesn’t recognize anything is connected. Bluetooth works for phone calls but can’t select to play music through Bluetooth.

In settings and connections. Do you see the audio icon and is it lit up in white? If not you can edit your phone and enable audio. But you should be able to stream through bluethooth no problem.

I’ll have to look later today, I don’t recall seeing that. I was just hitting mode because I had the usb plugged in, but that was gray like it didn’t detect anything.
Also found this sweet thing in the glove box. Have to find my old iPod I guess.

Yeah it seems your car was not spec'd with the technology package, which gives you a larger screen, different i-drive wheel setup, and some other features





I only connect my phone to bluetooth for phone calls, and being able to read text messages on the screen. For music if I'm not listening to the normal radio, I just have a USB stick plugged in that I've loaded up w/ music :LOL:
