    Miami1683 when you say you had issues with the 535 are they the same as my issues or something different?

    I have a brand new 2010 Mazda 3 and can make and receive phone calls, but no music through the system yet. Hoping the next software update helps fix this.

    Update - I installed an application called BUMP which allows you to transfer your contact info when you 'bump' phones together, and after that my phone will no longer pair with my car. I think it bombs out when it goes to transfer the phone book, because initially it will pair, then after a few seconds the phone gives an error about com.android.phone stopping and I have to force quit it. Does the phone push the address book / contact list to the car? Or does the car request the contacts from the phone? Does anybody know?

    Its an 06 325i - I have been communicating back and forth with support from the Bump app, but so far no luck. I can pair just fine with a standard bluetooth headset so I think the issue really is pertaining to the transfer of contacts.

    Mazda 6 Bluetooth works after phone UPDATE

    I now have Bluetooth stereo. It works great.

    BMW owners: Update your phone and you will probably be working.

    I have a 2004 E60, 545 with the BT kit. Last total software update was 5 weeks ago. My droid synced immediately with the car, but after the first call, BT on the phone crashes. it will reconnect, then crash again, then it's done. I hope a solution is found!! The Droid is a great phone.

    There is still no update fix for Droid support from BMW NA. I recently got that they are still working on this. So still some5'x and 3's seem to have the issue.
