Surely you can usb drives


Its an ancient BMW, E46 so around 2001...


AUX in maybe? My preferred way to listen to music in the car these days is Spotify on my smartphone. Connected via AUX. With a premium subscription you can even have off-line lists that you can listen to (great for airplane travel as well).

Even better if you have aux in is to add a Kinivo bluetooth receiver, adds handsfree calling and Apt-X audio streaming, and in both cases works flawlessly

Jeez, my 1990 BMW has factory aux-in so that's Spotify on my N5 and calls coming through the speakers sorted for the cost of a 3.5mm to rca cable.

I then made an aux-in cable for my 2001 e39 using an old motherboard to cd drive cable. The female pins fit the BMW male pins in the OBC perfectly. It took all of 15 minutes of googling/soldering a 3.5mm plug/fitting to replace the CD changer and I couldn't be happier. A couple of capacitor/resistor/thingies and you can even fool the OBC to think it has Aux-in, but I haven't got around to that yet. It works as-is so I haven't bothered to try breaking it !

I think this was the link I used. E39 aux in
