Bluetooth. It worked fine with an aux in cable. I did not have an iPhone cable with me to try that.

Some of the settings in iDrive are off by default when they should be on. Bluetooth streaming is one of them. Go into Cd/Multimedia settings and enable Bluetooth steaming. Then you should be able to go back to the options of your paired phone (in iDrive) and enable bluetooth streaming.

This worked for me. Hitting the options button after highlighting the phone. Thanks! Some of the iDrive stuff is not intuitive for a person using it for the 1st time. But I have learned now to keep hitting that option button if I can't figure it out.

When my X1 comes in I hope it is fully integrated with the iPhone 5... One of the main reasons I bought the car is cause of the technology and gadgets...

What are your expectations? I think the iPhone integrates well but we don't use BMW apps or the snap-in adapters.

Both my wife (4s) and I (5) can have our phones synced and active at the same time which I could not do in our previous iDrive (no combox).

Honestly... it will all be better than what I have. I have a 2011 SS Camaro with no technology in it. My Fiance has a 2012 135i M package and I love her integration with her droid. Taking calls and listening to music is really all I am looking for. Taking delivery at the Performance center for her car is what really turned me onto BMW.

The Apple integration is much better than Android so you will be happy!

Perhaps this will help. I checked the BMW website:

http://www.bmw.com/com/en/owners/nav...eck_intro.html

selected appropriate drop downs and then keyed in my last 7 digits of my VIN, specified my carrier, and the iPhone 5. The website indicated that office functions are NOT available. So, it depends on the software installed in your system and the carrier.

True, no email. Also, my one big gripe is that it doesn't access the Favorites part of my address book from my phone. My last car did that and it makes calling people with several phone numbers easier. I've not figured a workaround for that yet.

I'm pretty sure you need BMW APPS for the office functions.

I have an iPhone 5 and I'm not happy with the way the white lightning usb cable integrates with the coral red interior. I purchased the Griffin Coiled USB-to-Lightning Cable and it integrates quite nicely.





I am also using a Monster iCable with a cigarette USB adapter for my wife to charge her 4s in the passenger or back seat.





I will sometimes leave the phone in the cupholder but usually tuck it beside the hand brake (when not in my pocket).

This morning, just discovered that SMS does show up on the display. I received a txt msg while driving and of course, it pops up on the iPhone screen. I didn't pay attention to it until I got to a stop light. Then noticed that a little email icon was displayed on the X1 screen. Never saw that before! So, selected the Office function from the main menu and there was the SMS listed! I was even able to get the TXT to Speech to work and text was read out loud. But I guess once that's done, it's no longer available to display on the X1 screen. It's no longer listed.

Sweet. I did not know these 3rd party cables were available yet. The white apple cable has been getting on my nerves since it is too long for the car. Will be picking one of these up!
