How to get OEM Bluetooth streaming without modifications. All BMW

Sun May 28, 2017 12:25 pm

In my search for getting bluetooth streaming for my car that has 6FL USB/AUX in the armrest, I bought one of these.
https://bmwstream2air.com
It arrived Friday, and I plugged it in, paired it and got music, but no track detail. So, despite their claims, it doesn't always pass through the A2DP info.
Being a little racked off with the result, I did a bit more research and found that the go to solution is a ViseeO tune2air WMA3000B
I got it off Amazon for £66 (cheaper than the BMW Y-Cable) on Prime and it arrived yesterday.
Plugged it in this morning, paired it according to the instruction, and voila, External Devices now shows my iPhone and all the music on it. I tried my Audible app and all is good.
My phone stays connected to the car too while sat in the cradle, so when a call comes in it just pauses the music and instantly switches to the car BT for phone calls. Perfect.
If you have the 6FL USB/AUX but no BT streaming in your car, this is the perfect solution to not having to use the Y-Cable and have something plugged in.

I have a 2009 X5 3.5D M Sport. Would I get the same results as you?

If you have the usb/3.5mm jack in the armrest, I don’t see why not.

Sounds a good buy, Do you get music album art work as well as the music info?

I've used Viseeo units in a couple of Mercedes, worked first time in both, no quirks or difficulties. Pity my E70 only has aux in, no USB.

I only have Aux in the armrest too, no USB. Does that mean this won't work? :(

I've just bought one of these and its awsome, the sound quality is excellent especially through the individual audio.
