PostSubject: R56 Radio re-booting.   17th January 2014, 12:54

The 'Boost' radio in my 2010 Cooper S keeps re-booting.

It'll be fine for weeks, then it'll do it several times on a single journey.

It'll do it when the car is moving, and when the car is stationary.

Symptoms: For example, ipod > off > 89.1FM
It then takes a minute or so to recover and re-enable DAB and ipod.
Then a few minutes later, having recovered, it'll go ipod > off > 89.1FM again.

Has anyone else experienced this, what's the fix?

Thank you,
Richard.

Have you noticed it occurring in conjunction with anything else?

Mine has done this twice on separate occasions, I thought it was to do with the heater being on at the same time at a high temperature, I meant to get it looked at but it's not happened in months (obviously it'll happen on the way home now!)

I think maybe a specialist is the best bet, hopefully just a loose wire?! good luck!

It's only when using iPod.
It's fine with CD/FM/DAB/USB memory sticks
It did it yesterday on the way home, somewhere along Steers Lane.
It did it today on the way in, somewhere along the exit ramp at M25/J8


The whole interface is hardly intuitive or ergonomic.
What other audio systems have folks had fitted as replacements?

I never noticed this with my R56, although I have to say I didn't use the iPod (or in my case iPhone back when I had one) interface too much.

Sounds like it could be a bug in the firmware somewhere, with the iPod.

My cars Boost radio sometime has a funny five minutes, but usually that is due to the iPod Classic.

I was using a 4th gen iPod Nano and a non-BMW interface 'Y' cable.
Given up on that for now, back to a memory stick.

Solution? Just buy the proper ipod cable from MINI.

Very Happy

I've got to get a new iPod or cable or both. Which ever it is, it's an excuse for shopping Wink
