Default How to stream audio (music, podcasts) from phone to 2006 BMW 525i through bluetooth?

Hello all,

I am trying to help my boyfriend set up bluetooth audio streaming from his phone to his 2006 BMW 525i. The BMW has the ability to receive and make phone calls by pairing the phone through bluetooth. However, it does not seem to be able to stream other audio, such as music and podcasts, through bluetooth pairing.

Is there anyway to set up bluetooth audio streaming from his phone to the BMW's sound system without retrofitting an aux input? The car doesn't have an aux input either. What would be the best way to do this?

Thank you in advance!

Welcome to the forum! There are actually several options, depending on the amount of effort you want to put into it. Read through these posts.


Better Bluetooth Streaming


I myself actually got the Sure Electronics board for Christmas and am going to attempt the install today.
