Bluetooth 2010 118d m sport

Post by Cobbers86 » Sat Feb 17, 2018 3:48 pm

Hi guys,

New to owning a bmw, just went and brought myself a 118 d m sport 143bhp.
I noticed that my phone won't connect to the Bluetooth. It's an iPhone 8. Anyone else have this issue? It's a bmw professional radio. Is this an issue with the stereo?
My phone literally can't even find a connection.

Also are there any members around here from the Cambridgeshire or Hertfordshire area? I'm considering getting a remap and would like recommendations if possible :)

Thanks

Rob

Car may not have been specced with BT option. Do a VIN check to see what options it came with from factory. viewtopic.php?f=17&t=55328

Just checked with the link you provided. It does appear to have it.

Looks like it should have it - if the original HU is still fitted..

When you press 'Menu' does it show a phone symbol on the display?
It may not be active all the time, you need to get it to advertise itself before it shows up on your phone search.

Yes it intermittently displays the phone symbol but then disappears.
Do you know how I might fix this issue? It’s the original radio installed.
