The standard Bluetooth interface provides a wireless connection between the vehicle and Bluetooth-compatible mobile phones. The phones are operated via the hands-free kit, multifunction steering wheel, iDrive Controller or Voice Control depending on the equipment options of the individual vehicle. Your local BMW dealer will be happy to inform you about which mobile phone devices (and software versions) are compatible with the standard Bluetooth interface.
How do you navigate through a library of 10,000 songs? Preferably on the road using the multifunction steering wheel or iDrive button. Almost all common MP3 players, USB sticks and iPods can be integrated effortlessly with the audio system. The title of the track being played is displayed either in iDrive or on the radio display. The internal hard drive operated via a USB 2.0 interface is integrated in the glove compartment, and players can be operated directly using the USB connection in the central console.
BMW is the first automobile manufacture to provide an interactive and multimedia Owner's Manual that is integrated in the vehicle. The hard drive saves animations, slideshows and language settings as well as information on fitted, standard equipment. Within seconds, the driver is able to access valuable information about their vehicle.
