iPhone Bluetooth issues


Sep 11, 2019
Switched over to an iPhone from android, and when I connected to the car there There doesn’t appear to be a way to configure the phone so it plays media from applications and instead all of it goes through the car, unlike the android where you can actually select if you want music or applications or both or none to go through the car.

Has anyone else seen this or know how to address it? I’ve got some apps that need to be running while I’m driving and I need to get the notifications, but I usually have Spotify Playing from the car itself, so I can’t hear any of the notifications coming through since the audio on the car is not set to the phone.

Bump for this. I have the same issue, there doesn’t seem to be any (apparent) way of controlling the music on the phone from the car. Given that my 15-year-old BMW did that it’s a bit of a surprise!
