New 2019 30i yesterday

BIMMERPOST
     Featured on BIMMERPOST.com
I bought a new 30i yesterday. It wasn't exactly an impulse buy but I didn't research this purchase the way I did the 128i we traded in. There is a new threshold to be called a BMW genius? The guy didn't really help me at all with the technology.

1. When I used the wireless charger on my iphone 10 the light turned blue but in 2 hours I went from 28% to 26%. So it must have gotten some charge but is this normal?

2. Appleplay........and connecting a phone. Is it possible to have the car recognize 2 phones but always recognize the phone of the primary driver if she's in the car but if not, recognize the other? The bluetooth appleplay is a great idea but I've already decided that the way my Ford Explorer does it is more logical.

For your questions :
(1) not normal, your phone when placed in the wireless charger pad should get charger ... may be you have a case ... try it without the case
(2) You can set up two phones but the car will always recognize the first phone ... so make sure you always ride before your wife

Yep. The black wheels would not have been my choice. But, now that it's in my garage, I like em OK.

My experience with the wireless charging varies. It seems to me that if the CarPlay connection is actually used, the phone keeps the charge rather than actually increasing the charge. I assume itís because it uses the WLAN. Still, itís nice to have Waze running in the background and not having to worry about draining the battery. Oh, and I have one of these super thin phone covers, so expect even less than optimal charging connection.

I will check my setup... both my wife and I have iPhones, I think I set it up so mine is primary, and hers is secondary. I will let you know.

You sure "she" is his wife? Ah Ah Ah.......
With such beautiful Z4 and best color combo, I think girls will rush to jump-in.

Congrats on the purchase!

Have you tried creating a second profile and adding the second phone to that profile?

I'm not happy with the way the car handles the phone choices. It seems like you ought to be able to just his the phone you want to use on this trip and that's the phone that you get. But it ain't that easy. I'm going on a 4 week trip. When I get home I'm going to sit in the car and see what BMW can tell me.

I gave up on Apple CarPlay. It is buggy. Sometimes it demands to take control over the UI when you want to just listen to the damn radio; sometimes it locks up. Happened to me a few times - I honestly get nothing from it. I switched back to normal iPhone mode.

I have a samsung mobile phone but for music I just use an ipod with apple music which I leave more or less permanently connected to the car via the usb. I don't use CarPlay as this works well enough through then idrive.
