General conditions
The following device classes are supported by
the USB audio interface; see the information
and tables below for details:
Overview
With the "USB audio interface" (option code
6FL) for BMW and the "Bluetooth mobile preparation with USB Audio Interface" (option
code 6NE) or "Bluetooth hands free kit with
USB Audio Interface" (option code 6ND) for
MINI, suitable MP3 players such as the Apple
iPod can be connected to the vehicle via a USB
interface and operated by means of the vehicle's input elements. The "Extended connection
of the MP3 player in the
mobile phone" (option code 6NF) can be used
for selected mobile phones with a suitable USB
snap-in adapter to access the music data stored there.
Along with MP3 players, USB sticks can also be
connected to the USB audio interface to enable
playback of the audio files stored on the USB stick.
As regards connection of a mobile phone with USB
interface to the USB audio interface, it is important to
bear in mind that some mobile phones exclude simultaneous Bluetooth operation of the phone, in other
words there is no assurance that calls can be received or initiated.
More special features of using mobile phones as an
audio player can be found on page 3.
It is possible to access the audio files directly
via a playlist, but it is also possible to search by
musical genre, artist, album or track. The audio
files are sorted and displayed correctly in the vehicle
if the file information on the MP3 player (e.g. ID3
tags) only contains Latin characters and if all the
spaces are filled. Only audio files can be played back.
Access to other files (e.g. videos) is not possible.
Due to the variety of MP3 players and USB
sticks available on the market and the multiplicity of specifics that can vary from device to
device, flawless operation with the USB audio
interface cannot be ensured for all devices. The
devices tested for compatibility by the BMW Group
are therefore communicated on a regular basis. The
information on compatibility in this product information refers exclusively to new vehicles (as of date of
manufacture March 2009♦ and later).
♦ Changes compared to the last version dated March 2009
•
Apple iPod and Apple iPhone
•
MP3 players and USB sticks (USB mass memory
as per "USB Mass Storage Class" specification)
•
MP3 players with Media Transfer Protocol (MTP)
•
Mobile phones with USB mass storage (in
accordance with specification "USB Mass
Storage Class") or Media Transfer Protocol
(MTP)
An "Incompatible device" message displayed in the
car indicates that an attempt has been made to connect a device belonging to a class that is not suitable
for use with the interface.
Apple iPods are connected to the vehicle with
the "adapter cable for Apple iPod/iPhone" (Yadapter 30-pin plug to USB and AUX-IN) available
as an accessory from the BMW Group.
For the transfer of audio files to MP3 players or
mobile phones with MTP capability, BMW recommends using the Windows Media Player,
version 11 or higher.
Please bear in mind that DRM-protected music
tracks cannot be played via the USB audio interface.
Other MP3 players or USB sticks can be connected to the vehicle with the aid of a USB cable. The external device also receives its charging
supply via this cable (max. 500 mA); it is advisable not
to connect the external device to the vehicle's 12V
power socket at the same time. It is not possible to
access copy-protected audio files.
The USB audio interface supports the mainstream
compression formats MP3 (mp3), AAC (aac, m4a,
m4b), WAV/PCM (wav) and WMA (wma, asf) and
playlists in M3U format.
Persons considering leaving MP3 players or USB
sticks in the car must comply with the applicable
instructions for use. It is advisable not to leave MP3
players or USB sticks in the car for a prolonged period, because extreme ambient conditions can occur
in the closed interior of the vehicle (temperature,
relative humidity).
Please observe the notes on the following pages.

USB product information: Tested
MP3 players, USB devices and mobile
phones. New vehicles.
Apple iPod/iPhone
Apple iPods are generally supported from the
4th generation onward. This includes iPod
nano, iPod mini, iPod Touch and iPhone. The
Click Wheel is the identifying feature of 4G devices
and later generations. Older models have a scroll
wheel or touch wheel and are not supported.
Apple iPods have to be connected by means of
the "adapter cable for Apple iPod/iPhone" (Yadapter, 30-pin plug to USB and AUX-IN) available as an accessory from the BMW Group. The
adapter cable is necessary to play copy-protected
music files and to show playlists, and also for quick
access to the contents of the iPod. Use of the USB
cable supplied with the Apple iPod is not supported.
For iPhone and iPhone 3G, the relevant USB
snap-in adapter can be used alternatively in
combination with option code 6NF.
Skip forward/back in a podcast takes the iPod to the
start of the next/current podcast, respectively. It is not
possible to skip to chapter markers.
Only the soundtrack of videos is played back.
iPod shuffle can be used only as a USB device with
FAT file system. For more details visit:
http://docs.info.apple.com/article.html?artnum=61131
If the iPod freezes, one way of remedying the situation is to reset the device. For details visit:
http://support.apple.com/kb/HT1320
Select "About" from the main menu to view details of
the software version installed on the iPod. More
information is posted on the Apple websites. Please
note that iTunes can update the iPod's software
automatically, which could compromise the interplay
of the iPod with the USB audio interface.
To check the software version:

To identify the iPod model:
http://docs.info.apple.com/article.html?artnum=61688
An iPod can be disconnected from the vehicle at any
time.

MP3 players and USB
sticks
MP3 players with Media Transfer Protocol
(MTP) are supported. Some MTP devices can be
switched to Mass Storage Class mode. See the
instructions for use issued with the MP3 player for
details.
MP3 players compliant with the USB Mass
Storage Class specification are supported, as
are USB sticks. These devices have to be formatted with the FAT file system. Only the files in
the first partition are shown. With some MP3 players
is it necessary to start by switching on the USB connection and activating the mass-storage mode (USB
Mass Storage Class). See the instructions for use
issued with the MP3 player for instructions.
Once the MP player or USB stick has been connected to the vehicle for the first time, information about the music content is uploaded to the
vehicle. This enables convenient selection by
musical genre, artist, album, track and playlist.
If devices containing very large volumes of data are
connected, the device's directory structure initially
provides the only way of accessing the music. A
device with 8 GB flash memory will take about 10
minutes to synchronise. The time it takes for synchronisation to complete and the speed of response
to inputs depend on the storage capacity and the
technology of the device and on the number and
type of music tracks stored.
USB hard discs and USB hubs or card readers with
multiple slots cannot be used.
The use of USB memory sticks with integrated hard
disc is not recommended. Tests have shown that
adequate audio quality cannot be ensured for these
devices.
MP3 players and USB sticks can be disconnected
from the vehicle at any time.

Mobile phones
Support
After connecting the mobile phones to vehicle via
USB cable or with the corresponding USB snap-in
adapter, observe the display on your mobile phone.
On most mobile phones, a certain USB mode must
be selected or set in advance. The mode recommended by BMW can be found in the last two table
columns on page 6. As a general principle, the mobile
phone should be linked to the USB audio interface as
a Bluetooth device before connection.
If your MP3 player, mobile phone or USB stick does
not work correctly with the USB audio interface, the
problem might be due to defective or specially coded
audio files (e.g., bit rate higher than 256 kbit/s). Always consult the instructions for the device being
used.
Some mobile phones only support one storage medium in combination with the USB audio interface, i.e.
the audio files must be stored either in the mobile
phone memory or on the smart card.
More information regarding the compatibility of mobile phones can be found at
http://www.bmw.com//bluetooth
When an MP3 player is synchronised on a PC, it
sometimes happens that the software of the MP3
player is updated automatically and under certain
circumstances this can have a negative effect on the
MP3 player's compatibility with the USB audio interface.
Given the multiplicity of MP3 players, mobile phones
and USB sticks available on the market and the differences in technology, perfect in-car operation cannot
be ensured. The devices that have been tested by
the BMW Group are listed in the tables below.
If you have questions, please do not hesitate to
consult your BMW/MINI Service Partner.
