This project aims to create a Bluetooth interface for vehicles equipped with the BMW IBus. It supports A2DP, AVRCP and the HFP protocols. AVRCP Metadata will be displayed on all supported devices along with full integration with the vehicle to control playback. Additional functionality will be added to allow users access to their vehicles service data and module information. Additional support has been added to emulate the factory telephone system.
