    Xoom output to BMW

    Anyone here have a BMW made in the last couple years with the idrive/nav system that knows if its possible to output videos from xoom onto this screen? The screen in the dash is high enough quality that you can put dvds in that will play when the car is parked and also movies in the car utilize the surround sound. Seeing if there is an opportunity to play movies this way for the nondrivers in the car on road trips etc.

    I thought BMW's had built in Bluetooth? Why not use the Xoom screen and connect Bluetooth for audio.

    Yeah they do have bluetooth built-in but no idea how I'd get the sound to come though car speakers. My phone for instance pairs and of course sound comes through with that. No clue if its possible to get non-phone audio to pipe in.

    Any clues anyone, on video and/or audio input into a bmw from the xoom?

    I would think that the sound should come through the car speakers when you connect the xoom. Although I'm not sure.

    I have a Ford with the Sync system although the car has a good bluetooth system my xoom wont conect with it. I just plug a headphone jack into the xoom and into the headphone jack Provided with the Sync. The audio from the xoom works great in my car.

    I played with this briefly yesterday with my new xoom and my bluetooth audio system in my car. I paired my xoom very easy, then played a video but the audio from the video did not play through my car speakers. Once you pair and start playing, is there something you have to do to tell the xoom to play through bluetooth and not built in speakers?

    Welcome to the forum.Glad you decided to join us. Haven't paired my Xoom with my car but when I pair my phone right after it pairs it says there's another setting for audio out instead of just using it as a phone for calls.
