    Atrix won't keep sync with new BMW idrive. Drops Bluetooth. wont' sync Phonebook

    New 2011 535i with iDrive system.

    I tested with an iPhone and works nicely.

    Atrix drops BT and has not been able to copy phonebook over like the iPhone. Spins on transferring data.

    Very fustrating. I'd hate to move back to iPhone for the Bluetooth issue.

    Any help appreciated.

    what phone book? Apple products tend to make things difficult to use on anything other than an Apple product, but there's a way to do it.

    BT on my Atrix works fine. Again, this could be a compatibility issue with an Apple product. I'm sure there's a work-around/way to do it. I can't help because I don't use Apple stuff, but there are plenty here that do. Someone will likely have an answer shortly.

    Phonebook is syncing to Gmail. No Apple products involved. The only reference to Apple is that when testing with the iPhone, it worked fine. Also with a Windows phone. However the Atrix will not conduct the phonebook transfer (Gmail contacts) from phone to BMW.

    Thanks

    Similar problem with my 2011 e90 and a Motorola Photon. I was able to get contacts into the iDrive Office application and save them to the car, it wants to sync everytime I'm in the car (and keeps trying periodically and I wish I could turn that off) and if I am on a call, drops it with a squeal after a few minutes or so.

    I was able to get the contacts into the iDrive office application through a BT transfer (I think as that was what I was trying when the started to appear). I tried to do the TELEPHONE BT contact sync and that never worked, only got it to work via the iDrive OFFICE approach.

    Hope that helps and anybody with ideas on how to stop the call drops, please chime in.
