I am wondering if anybody can help with an issue I am having and/or is experiencing the same issue.
I have a 2012 5 series and most of the time it works fine but sometimes there are really long delays between commands I enter from my idrive and when the Pre 3 responds. Also, I can hangup but the car display shows the call is still active and it won't let me initiate a new call from the car. I can make a call from the Pre but then the car Bluetooth does not make the connection for 10 seconds or so. Also sometimes the car does not realize a call is coming through and I then can't answer using the car controls and if I answer from the Pre it won't connect right away but again has the delay.
The last related issue I have is that sometimes the steering wheel controls are out of sync with the dashboard display and either they don't work or I have the issue where the call still shows as active even if I hang up.
Does anyone know if there is a way to determine what the root of the problem is? When I speak to the dealership they of course say my phone is not tested and to be thankful I get any functionality; which is no help. I would love to know if the issue is webOS, the Pre 3, the Bluetooth stack on the device or my car. And again because it is so intermittent it is very frustrating because at times it works flawlessly.
If anyone has a 2012 5 series and has no issues or even a 2012 BMW in general I would like a response even if everything is fine.
