    The Bluetooth system on my current car (Toyota) supports the registration of multiple phones. Only one can be active at a time, but it's just a matter of the driver selecting His or Her phone from a list on the vehicle's ICE system. Do the base-level BMW systems allow something similar?

    I’ve recently bought an e46 with an Xtrons pf7146bs head unit. What lead do I need to connect my phone for screen mirroring? All I can see is a mini USB port, I’ve ordered a mini USB to micro USB lead but they don’t seem a very common thing so wasn’t sure if I’m right. Can anyone confirm?

    E46 compact 2004 318ti. The centre console there is a phone cradle with button and also the button on the steering wheel. Now is this phone cradle totally redundant?
