spotify

I have the base hifi system in my g30, is there a way for my system to play my spotify account, when my phone is in the car, without running it through my phone.. Also my f30 and f48 both allow me to check my inbox texts, but my car doesn't give me that option.. is there any coding I can get done for this. my car is my office so this would be very very nice.. as well I want my car to broadcast wifi, what should I due to get this feature..

With iDrive 6 there is no way to stream Spotify without a phone. I would recommend Apple CarPlay if using an iPhone since the music quality is much higher over CarPlay than Bluetooth.

How about over cable? Can you expand as to why CarPlay affords better sound quality?

Also remember that CarPlay support connectivity over BT on the G30..

CarPlay uses WiFi. Bluetooth is used just to pair and initiate connection.

You need enhanced bluettoth option to read your inbox, mail etc... This can be coded by me or anyone else. To broadcast wifi and have internet hotspot connection you need to check you Connected Drive subscription and pay for the Hotspot feature if your hardware supports it.

Spotify is streamed over bt and Carplay over wifi. You need your phone in order to use Spotify.
