I'd absolutely love to know how you're doing that. I have used my iPhone and various iPods with my RT, with the data cable of course, and the bike's radio absolutely will not recognize any playlists that aren't named BMW1, BMW2, BMW3 etc. The dealer has even confirmed this as has BMWOA. And if I'm not mistaken, even the manual says that.tvguy said:That not correct... YOU CAN CONTROL an iPod. You have to buy the $70 cable from BMW to hook it together. It works fine WHEN THE SYSTEM WORKS...
BMW has serious issues with the BT and the USB connection. The system will play music for awhile then stop and say "NO USB CONNECTED"
If you are using a USB STICK - then you DO have to name the playlists BMW1, BMW2, 3, etc.
To view different info about you iPod playlist you have to select what you want displayed with the mode button.
Attached is a PDF of the audio system for your bike
sorry about the delay in responding, i took a week long bike trip and really enjoyed the nanopod on the RT except it played only in ALL mode. i had previously looked at the manual but i get your sentiment in not wanting lazy asses (myself included from time to time) keeping this thing a buzz without reading the manual first. With regard to my issue, i am going to check out the root directory since my directories are properly named. (bmw1 etc)Kornholio said:Instead of holding mode down, just press and release it. It will select your BMW playlists.
BTW, your manual explains all of this in much detail.
