Multimedia Capability – Audio Catalogue Search
The CD / Multimedia menu includes a sub-menu which allows you
to search the audio you have saved using the following criteria:
Genre / Artist / Album / Track
To enable use of this facility every audio file stored in the car must
be encoded with data (it is called the ID3 tag). This information is
not always available on an audio CD.
On the hard disc drive there is 4GB space allocated to a database
called Gracenote. This database is accessed when an audio CD is
ripped and the audio file is saved with the track data if it is
available.
There will be additional options for BMW ConnectedDrive
customers to supplement missing data. The Gracenote database
can also be updated during a workshop visit.
