2016 318d Steering Wheel Audio Controls

Post by asa201 » 02 Sep 2017, 10:13

Hi there,

My first post so let me know if I don't provide enough information around my 'problem'

I have a BMW 318d MSport Tourer (2016) and all seems to be going well other than a couple of minor issues I'm trying to resolve. One is with the Steering Wheel Audio Controls; specifically the little wheel scroller on the right hand side.

The scroller works fine on the radio, and on the telephone, but not on bluetooth media streatming, or USB audio connection to the phone. The dealer tells me this is expected but it seems such a simple thing for it not to be working...

I'm using an iPhone 6 and it seems, according to the BMW Compatibility Checker, that this is fully supported. Any ideas what's going on?

I will defer to maxwell on this, but BMW have a long history of not being very 'good' with external devices via I-drive, so it wouldn't surprise me if the software doesn't cover the functions you describe...........

Andy?
