Multimedia options for F20

Post by DomGreenslade » Thu Jul 12, 2018 9:54 pm

Hey there

I've just bought a 2013 F20, which has S663A, S6NHA, S654A and do not have a combox at all. I also do not have a USB in the glovebox, only in the center armrest, with an aux port too. Essentially, plugging my iPhone X into the center armrest does nothing other than say its not compatible. I even bought a Y cable, and it does the same kind of thing. I phoned BMW, and they basically said that my radio is not compatible with my phone, it will connect via bluetooth for calls, but obviously doesnt have bluetooth music streaming, nor will it connect via the cable either, so my only option at the moment is AUX, which renders the iDrive kind of useless.

So i'm looking at alternatives of what I can do. I have seen Tune2Air as a possible way around things, but realistically, what are my other options? Retrofit a combox? Replace the entire head unit? Any help would be amazing.
