How do you connect to the Bluetooth in a BMW 5 Series?

I’m renting a BMW 5 Series while I’m on business this weekend and I want to connect my phone to the car’s Bluetooth so I can make calls and listen to music. How can I connect my phone to a BMW via Bluetooth?

Bluetooth capabilities open up a whole world of hands-free possibilities that can make your drive more efficient and keep the roads safer. To connect to the Bluetooth in a BMW 5 Series, just follow these simple steps:
  1. Enable Bluetooth connection on your device.
  2. Select Communication from the iDrive menu, then Manage mobile devices, followed by Connect new device.
  3. The Bluetooth name for the BMW should appear on your phone as the name of your phone should appear on your BMW.
  4. Select either one to begin pairing.
Once you have successfully connected your phone through Bluetooth, you can enjoy a multitude of hands-free operations. If you’re interested in more car-related convenience, be sure to check out the Jerry app to find out how much you can save on your car insurance premium.
