1. You want that $100.00 in your pocket or an Amazon Fire TV don't you? Well here's the deal. With our new updated look we are in desperate need of an updated logo. The 'old' one has certainly served us well, but it's time. Find all the details here: bit.ly/1q0k6Wa

    While I suspect the issue lies with the vehicle and not the phone, it occurs to me that others may have had a similar problem and perhaps someone has found a solution - so here goes.

    Recently got a 2009 BMW X5 with iDrive and NAV, and while the Droid paired easily, it will not upload the phone book. This is a major inconvinience, because now I have to make all outgoing calls via the phone instead of iDrive or voice commands.

    I also have a 2007 3 Series with iDrive and NAV, and it works fine in that car (full phone book, etc.).

    Any BMW owners here that have had this problem and found a solution?

    check with manufacturer for any firmware updates that may have come out. You may need to interface the system in your car with a laptop possibly requiring a special usb cable. That worked for me. not in a Beemer but.. anyway, likely worth a look. good luck

    Problem solved! It was a stupid user error. I had not previously noticed the DROID notice in the top bar asking permission to transfer the address book info. Once I selected "Always" and "OK" - all was well. Had to unpair and re-pair with that step, but now all is well.

    Hopefully this will help someone else in the future.
