Does anybody who is running Developer Beta 5 use Bluetooth audio streaming, particularly in a BMW?

I'm having some serious issues with track-lists not updating correctly and the first song in my library playing the first 5 seconds and restarting from the beginning over and over again. It's literally unusable.

I remember similar issues when iOS10 was in Beta but this seems more critical than issues I've faced before.

Bluetooth streaming seems fine on other portable devices so I'm unsure if the car will need a Bluetooth firmware update or if it's something for Apple to iron out.

Anybody else having issues in a car?

What BMW (model and year) and radio?

I had the same issue the past two years with the betas and Bluetooth streaming, especially music.

I experienced the exact same thing as you are right now, but at soon as iOS hit GM it was ironed out. Not saying it will happen again, but it did manage to work out automatically the previous years for me.

I've got a 2017 F22 M240i running the latest iDrive 5 Pro Nav.

I'm hoping there are improvements to this soon as I like running the betas but this is a bit of a pain the way it is currently.

I don’t have a BMW, but there has been a lag/delay with changing tracks in the latest betas for me
