    BT only supports phone, not music !

    But there is a very big harddrive in your soundsystem, use the usb cable to upload 10.000 files !

    try resetting car battery. If that doesnt work, see if that works on a diff phone. If that fails, try resetting NIT. If that still fails, you need to rebuild the NIT unit. I lost bluetooth a few years ago when my battery died. Put battery back in and the function's grayed out. I didnt bother with it until an opportunity came up at a service when my mechanic tried to update the system software to fix the bluetooth, and the whole system wont reboot. We sent it out to get the radio "rebuilt" for about $800, not too bad

    Remove any existing Bluetooth pairings from the car and the phones and try pairing again.

    Your car must be one of very few …

    So I could enter your car with my phone ,stream music just after pairing ?

    No extra device installed nex tot the Harmann Kardon Infotainment system ?

    Sensational … I must say … never seen that before ...

    Correct. This works on both a '14 Speciale Coupe and a '15 Aperta

    The stock infotainment system on my 2015 Speciale also plays music and works the phone over bluetooth. I think there is a change in the infotainment system from the italia to speciale.

    was it working and it stopped working, or was it never working? sometimes the iphone updates mess with it, you have to delete it from the car and the phone and re-pair.

    What ‘Avia11’ said! Mine plays music also. 2015 Speciale. Haven’t played music in ages, so not sure if new phone updates have caused any issues. I have also had a flat battery and replaced that so will re-post next time I take the car out and let you know.
