Samsung Note 6 Not Pairing with Idrive BMW Bluetooth.

Customer Question

On the 2006 BMW 525i from Japan I am facing problems pairing the Samsung Note 6 phone with the Idrive Bluetooth. What to do?
With the FM range in the Bahamas we go from 86. to 105 can I select that range on my radio without using a band expander.
Also can I expand the FM radio range in the car without a band expander?

With what you have described here it sounds like you need a dealer to reprogram some computers to allow for these features to work in your area as well as to check and make sure you have bluetooth in your model.It may come with the phone option but not all had the phone blue tooth install kits installed so this may need installed as well by a dealer and additional programming done.
