Smile Synchronize Outlook Contacts via IPhone to Bluetooth.

Outlook works extremely well with the IPhone; simply performing a normal ITunes synchronization with your desktop computer will (should) automatically detect your Email settings, down load the settings to your IPhone as well as downloading your contacts to the IPhone. Paring your IPhone to your X5’s Bluetooth will automatically download the contact list to the Bluetooth. Subsequent connects to the Bluetooth (every time you start your X5) will rebuild the Bluetooth scroll list, based upon Outlooks “Full Name”, “Business”, “Home” and “Mobile” fields. To reduce the number of entries to scroll through, I moved the “Business”, “home”, “business fax” and “Mobile” numbers to the Outlook notes area. This procedure provides a concise scroll list on my Bluetooth while retaining the detail information in my IPhone. After updating your Outlook contacts, perform a ITunes to IPhone synchronization, which will in turn provide you with a new Bluetooth scroll list.

Randy,

Was there a question that you were answering here?

I use Outlook, iPhone, iTunes, BMW E70, Bluetooth, email, etc. without problems.

Lots of problems, no answers

Brian5, I was hoping to save anyone else from the frustration I had to go through. Everyone would say "it should work" but that is where the expertise seemed to end. I made three trips to the dealer to get the problems fixed, the bluetooth worked worse after every trip to the dealer. If your bluetooth works, don't make any changes and good luck.

Oh, OK. That puts it in context.

As QS said, which X5 are you talking about? I assume you're not talking about a 2008 E70 model?
