Customer Reviews

Frustrating but should be great

I was excited about this functionality as the two apps that I listen to in the car are both supported apps (Audible and Deezer). Audible is working fantastically thank you. Deezer however is not, the screen always displays correctly but 4 times out of 5 the sound comes out of my phone not the car speakers( I have tried on another iPhone and still the same). Perhaps this is an issue with the Deezer app itself but it still makes it a connected drive issue. The really frustrating thing is that I can't play it through the phone Bluetooth audible option either, you can play stuff from my music but as soon as you turn Deezer on it automatically connects as an app and I get the problem above. Please can you fix this. It should be much better than my last car but is actually much worse, as I can't play my music at all.

Works fine

Works fine with my 2016 F30 3 series. I'm not sure why there are so many bad reviews?

Only downside is the UI could use an overhaul. It's still in the old iPhone 4 style. But functionally everything works great!


Works perfectly and is a great addition for my car,i now have an all you can eat data allowance on my phone and have internet radio everywhere i go!!
