I went from a s8+ to a s9+ and while the s8 worked with usb to car radio I can not get my s9 to connect to radio so i can play the music that I have on my phone on my radio. I can bluetooth it to my radio but I want to use the usb because I find I get better sound quality when using the usb.
Solved! Go to Solution.
I also have the same issue and it's not a problem with my head unit, it's the phone. Tried everything, updating my head unit, phone, apps, tried different connection settings, reset my phone, head unit, etc. Super frustrating when you buy a new phone and old features dont work, its like a step back in technology.
I can confirm this is not a problem with my S8+ or my note 8 or an iPhone x and surprised Samsung hasn't fixed this BMW claims they have been trying to with Samsung but no solution yet
Same problem for me as everyone else in this thread. Samsung S9 with Pie update. No USB audio, no bluetooth media audio. All other phones working fine in my VW. Please push an update to fix this.
Moved from iPhone 7+ to S10+ - Same freaking problem. My friend and I got a deal from Verizon; we can't connect with USB with toyota and bmw. Meh !!!
The problem with BMW is - there is a bigger screen and with bluetooth the image of song doesn't show up. It looks so bad, so we thought to use USB but even that doesn't work at all.
