Question about NBT and iPhone integration
I have recently purchase an F30 (2013 335 MFG Jan 2013) which has enhanced bluetooth and nav, with bmw assist (but no apps), And a 2013 F10 (AH5) with NBT, which has enhanded BT and nav, with bmw assist (again with no apps).
I am noticing different (and strange) behaviour with my iPhone in both cars, in regards to listening to pandora.
Since I dont have BMW Apps, I do not get the fancy interface when I connect via white apple cable in the armrest when listening to pandora... this is normal and expected. The strangeness is this.
In my 335 which has the "older" nav, I can stream pandora via BT audio, but get no album art (again expected). I can ALSO connect the iPhone via the white apple cable to the usb port in the armest, start up pandora using the phone itself, and listen to pandora through the cars speakers.
I can use the idrive to skip forward, AND I get album art this way. Only downside is not having the pretty bmw apps idrive interface, and having to pick up the iPhone to change "stations" in pandora.
In the ActiveHyrid 5 with the NBT, every time I connect the iPhone via the white cable, I can not get pandora to play through the car. It starts for 1 second, then the playlist on the phone (music that is actually ON the phone and not streaming through pandora) resumes playing.
I push play button in pandora again, it starts for .5 to 1 second, and then stops and music on the phone plays.
Is this expected behavior for the NBT or do I have a problem I should take care to dealer for?
