iPhone 5 Bluetooth problems pairing with BMW

Got my new iPhone 5 last week. Need to test my apps on the latest device…..

Couldn’t get it to sync to my wife’s 1 series. Looking on internet loads of people seem to have the same problem. Some suggest its a naming problem, some a bug that needs fixing. Have to admit i was quite annoyed for a while – it would just hang at the passcode stage. However I decided to try the old turn it off and on again trick – actually i did a hard reset – and whoa it worked first time. Paired no problems. I remember when the first iPhone came out a load of people said it was worth rebooting it every now and again but I got out of the habit. Bizarrely Ive been having a problem with printing on my iMac that rebooting cured. That hadnt been rebooted for about 6 months. Perhaps i should do it every now and again!

    which device did you reboot? the iphone or the cpu on board the BMW? My BMW dealership was of no help to me at all. I am having issues with my iphone 5 pairing with my 2008 BMW 535i. My iphone 4 worked just fine. I sure could use some help here.
