Iphone 5 (7.0) Music
« on: July 01, 2014, 12:57:31 pm »
Does Blue&Me only work with iTunes or iPhone Music? Basically, I use another app for my music.

When I plug my phone in, it automatically fires up the music from my iTunes, to which I then change to my chosen app and play a song. The music plays, and the song name appears on the dash, but the timer stays at 00:00, and after the song changes to the next, the previous song name stays up for 10 seconds, then the sound cuts out. I have to change through AUX, CD and then back to Blue&Me to resume playing...for that song, rinse and repeat.

When I took all the songs off iTunes on my phone, I wasn't able to access Blue&Me Altogether.

Is it mandatory I use iTunes? I can do so, but it's more of a pain if I do.

I assume there is no Bluetooth media player function?

Thank you.

    Basically iPhones are not Abarth friendly! Which is crap for me too!

    Can't you just update the iTunes library on your phone using the locally stored songs and use that just for the car?

    Sorry, I don't know how Apple products work (other than iTunes PC) - I use an Android which works a treat

    My iPhone 5 works just fine with my Abarth's Blue & Me. However, check this post. It may mean the end for Blue & Me.
