Hi everyone,
I have an issue with the bluetooth audio in my F56... I use the usb port for my ipod and it works flawlessly. The problem is when I use the bluetooth audio with my phone. Once it starts playing a song it suddenly fastforwards the song, then stops it and then it is working ok. I unpair my phone then pair it again still the same issue. the songs are ok because I have listened to them many times with speakers and headphones.
Has anybody had the same issue? How did you fix it?
Thanks!

Ah I should have read this before replying to Berty's asking you to to the same things I see you have already done. So the problem appears to be specific to Bluetooth.

My problem is the bluetooth audio doesn't work for youtube. Once connected to the car, my phone (samsung s4)plays the stored songs via bluetooth but youtube audio doesn't work.

In order to compare with others, you need to state which phone/os version you are using. Obviously it does not effect everyone, so is probably specific problem to your phone model or os version.

I'm also having problems with the car playing music over bluetooth. The symptoms are the same as described in the original post. The music over bluetooth will pause, and then skip to catch up to where it should be. This is an LG G2 running Android, paired with a 2015 Mini Cooper hardtop.

Texy, you know bluetooth problems aren't limited to this one person. There's another thread on this forums about similar problems, which you replied to on the same day you replied in this one.

There are other posts in this forum describing bluetooth problems, so it's very unlikely the various phones we have are the problem. Additionally, in this thread, the poster was told by their technicians they had dealt with a few other cars that had bluetooth issues:

In my situation:

- The phone doesn't do this with any other device, so it's not the phone
- Multiple apps exhibit the same behavior (media player, Amazon player etc) so it's not a particular app
- Music from the car's harddrive or from the phone over USB plays fine
- The car has the Connected XL package with the "enhanced bluetooth" option included

The likely culprit is among the iDrive software, car firmware or the bluetooth hardware. I have updated the software from the BMW website, but there has been no change. I'm bringing my car into the service department under warranty, hopefully they can sort it.

If anyone else has had this problem I'd be interested in hearing about it, especially if you were able to solve the problem.

Collecting all the links to the various bluetooth threads for everyone's ease of finding:
