I have a 2012 BMW with NAVI, Bluetooth and iPhone4 in original BMW phone adapter.
My car, have the latest multimedia update from BMW (UPD01005), my iPhone4 have iOS 6.0.1 and I use Spotify App 0.5.9.10 (no other apps installed)
When I start Spotify the music plays fine and title info and cover art are displayed in the NAVI screen. The track numbers that are displayed are from iPhones Music App. And I cannot skip tracks with iDrive buttons or buttons on steering wheel. They link to iPhones Music App as well. So if I push Next or Prev, Spoyify stops and the next/prev track will be played from iPhones Music App. It seems like the Music App auto starts when the phone is connected with the car adapter or USB.
If I remove the iPhone from the adapter and use it with Bluetooth all buttons work fine, and title info and track number is displayed correct in the NAVI display. Only drawback, there is no cover art.
But this seems like the best solution for now.
So my question is: Is there a way to get steering wheel and/or iDrive buttons to work with Spotify when the phone is in the car adapter or connected to USB?
Just to further clarify, the issue I have reported earlier is NOT releated to a Bluetooth connection, instead I'm referring to a connection using the standard BMW ipod cable (which has a normal iPhone cable on one side, while the other side has USB & AUX connections)
