BMW USB Integration

Music to your ears. Literally.
Get in and play on - the USB audio interface lets you connect MP3 players, Apple iPods, USB sticks and mobile phones seamlessly with the BMW audio system. Tracks are played in HiFi quality via the loudspeakers and your music choice can be controlled using either buttons on the steering wheels, iDrive, voice control or the radio buttons. If a suitable USB snap-in adapter is available for your mobile phone and vehicle combination, you can connect and charge it in the central console using the extended connectivity of the music player in the mobile phone option. Thanks to this special equipment, mobile phone conversations take place via the vehicle’s external aerial for better reception.

How do you navigate through a library of 10,000 songs? Preferably on the road using the vehicle’s control functions. Almost all common MP3 players, Apple iPods and USB sticks can be integrated effortlessly with the audio system. The title of the track being played is displayed either on the control or radio display. MP3 players and Apple iPhones can be operated directly from the central console. All common formats are supported (MP3, AAC, WAV and WMA) as well as M3U-format playlists. To integrate an Apple iPod or Apple iPhone, the BMW Y-cable adapter for Apple iPod/iPhone equipment is required. The BMW Y-Cable is included with your vehicle at time of delivery for select models only. Speak with your sales advisor for more details.*
