I know that 2004 BMWs used a Bluetooth protocol that is now obsolete. There are no longer any cell phones made that will pair with a 2004 BMW unless you get a very expensive upgrade to your Bluetooth module from BMW. Not worth it. When my wife got a new phone several years ago, she had to switch to aftermarket Bluetooth devices because as I recall, it was something like $2k to upgrade the Bluetooth in her '04 330i.
I was under the impression that 2005 BMWs use a more current Bluetooth communication protocol, but I don't know that for sure. If your car is an early 2005, I would suspect that perhaps it uses the same protocol as the '04s.

Bluetooth connected to x5 but can't play music


You'll have to confirm this with BMW as we have a 650, 135, and X3 not an X5, but your car won't play iphone based music via bluetooth. It will sync contacts, make calls and some other things (particularly with the newer apps) but it won't play your music.

To play your music you have to have the package that allows you to connect your iphone via an iphone cable (usb at one end, iphone connector at the other - what you use to charge it). With this connected you can then see all your music and control your iphone through the screen on the dashoard.

What are the step by step instructions for bluetooth pairing 2005 BMW X5? Not 2004 or 2006.


if you go the http://www.bmwusa.com/default.aspx and at the top of the page go to owners then owners manuals. Pick out your year, when that loads pick out your model. when that loads it will go to the page to download the manual but also towards the bottom of the page it has videos that show you in detail how to sync your phone. Very detailed and very helpful. I hope this helps you and good luck.
