Question about Cell Phones

Bluetooth BMW 530i

I have a 2004 BMW 530i. It has iDrive and Bluetooth connectivity. I successfully paired my Apple iphone 5 and used it to have phone calls on the first day. The next day, the car recognises and auto pairs with the phone but then whilst driving it drops out and goes through the process of reconnecting. Every time it does this, the radio audio drops out. It also drops out and reconnects during phone calls. I have tried turning off Bluetooth on the car and the phone and reconnecting but this does not help. Google search comes up with a 'these symptoms are coming from a faulty MULF bluetooth control unit" and recommends replacing the unit at a cost of AUD$400. Is this really necessary?

Pair iphone to general motors car


  • Get into your GM vehicle with your Bluetooth compatible cell phone and turn both on. Use the dashboard controls to turn your GM's Bluetooth system to its "Discovery Mode."
  • 2 Go to the Bluetooth application on your phone and turn the Bluetooth mode on to its "Discovery Mode." Now your phone will begin searching for other Bluetooth devices within its range. When it locates your GM's Bluetooth, your phone's screen will show the name of your vehicle and ask if you'd like to continue syncing the two Bluetooth devices. Select "Yes."
  • 3 Enter the numeric code that appears on your GM control panel screen into your phone and continue the pairing process. While pairing, your phone will share your contact information with your GM to enable the Caller ID on the dash screen to work.
  • 4 Confirm successful pairing by making a phone call. Make calls using your GM's voice activation, which is done by pushing the "Phone" button on your steering wheel. You can also dial from your phone's keypad and the sound will transfer to your GM's speakers.

    My iphone wont connect to the bluetooth in my valkwagen golf car?


    As I have learned the hard way the iphone's bluetooth is only to pair with wireless bluetooth headset and car stereo. You cannot connect to any other kind of devices. Also you must have Iphone Os 3.0 or higher to stream music to your car stereo. If it still does not work then the belkin bluetooth audio receiver should solve your problen

    Iphone won't work with bluetooth in mazda 3 2010 My iphone shuts off whenI try to use the bluetooth system in my mazda 3


    iPhone has had bluetooth since the first model in 2007. With iPhone OS/firmware 3.0 (free for all iPhone users), iPhones are fully A2DP compliant and link with Mazda bluetooth.
    My current experience is with a 2010 Mazda3 and iPhone 3GS, where I get phone and iPod functionality via bluetooth (yes, without jailbreaking), though the steering-wheel controls are limited to play/pause and volume only.

    Halfway working bluetooth


    You cannot at present use iphone's Bluetooth to transfer files/link up phones/computers etc as Apple has intentionaly crippled the Bluetooth so you can only connect to some handsfree kits and headsets.. this is to force use of itunes only for file/music/apps transfer and of course to prevent copy of said files between your iphone and other phones/devices to force each person to buy apps and music (prevent theft by file sharing)
