Default Full Bluetooth - Streaming? - 11th June 2014, 11:16 AM

Picking up a new to me R55 this evening that has the "Full Bluetooth with USB" option. Simple question, can I stream audio via bluetooth?
Cheers

Anyone give me some guidance for streaming over Bluetooth from an iPhone 5 please? I'm assuming I can get a snap in adapter but guessing it'll only charge and boost signal from the aerial? This is my armrest

You may need to update the in car software first.

latest version here:
MINI Connected

Once updated connect phone as normal to car via blutooth

Now if you have a visual boost radio/sat nag installed you then simply click on the music icon and your phone should appear on the list of options to play music back from (from memory it's third one down.)

You don't NEED to have the snap in adaptor as you are correct that all it does is charge the phone and boost the signal.

No I would not that say that.

It's probably just a bit fiddlier. The only reason i mentioned the visual boost is because I have it and I don't know what the procedure is without it, however I doubt it wouldn't be too dissimilar.

I assume there is some kind of menu on the radio that you can scroll through?

If visual boost/sat nag was a requirement for full blutooth they would have sold them together from the beginning.

I think my advice is fiddle about with the menus a bit and see what you can find!

here's a visual guide of the visual boost version which might help point you in the right direction:
