Hi, I have a 2014 BMW 3 series GT, I am a newly converted from iPhone and I absolutely love my new edge 7. However its a little gripe I have, but I am unable to play my music through my cars audio. I can only assume its BMW dragging their heels with updates to their connect audio. But am I the only one facing such problems... does anyone know a workaround? I have spotify and love my audio and this is ruining my experience... I will not get another BMW! I love me Samsung edge 7!!
I too have a S7 edge and a BMW albeit a 2012 3 series convertible and the only way to play music from your phone through the car stereo is to use a bluetooth or NFC music streaming device - I use the Arcam miniBlink as it supports Aptx which allows for higher data transfer rates and hence better music.
The car allows an iPhone to connect via a cable whereas Android and Samsung in particular (you can't connect a S7 edge to a TV using a cable - they withdrew cable support years ago) don't.
I use S7 edge with no problem for music. Spotify pauses as I turn of ignition, start where it left of as I get in the car again.
All through samsung connet.
What I miss is the calendar display in office of car.
Connect your phone to the car using the USB cable and assuming that you have the BMW application on your phone, then go to the Office option on the iDrive and you'll see your calendar entries.
