BMW Connected App

My apologizes up front if this topic is OBE. Any road, I'm having difficulties running the initial self-diagnosis test on my phone (iphone 5). I've followed the instructions via BMW's web-portal and from an achieved thread on said subject from another website. With that said, my attempts to sync the car (2012 335i) to the phone are:
-apple usb attached to phone jack
-turn on the Connected drive app
-plug the usb cable into the armrest connector
-start the self-diagnosis test

Results...after the self-test starts my progress bar will move slightly forward before I receive the connection to vehicle failed message.

I would deeply appreciate any assistance or guidance on troubleshooting.

I think you need the snap in adapter to make the Connected Drive app work.

Can't do. I'm w/o the cradle, but tech package and enhanced USB equipped. All indicators I've seen from various source to include the app itself show the white apple USB cable as a option to sync.

Figured out the root cause -- won't work w/o BMW apps installed. Streaming stations from the iPhone app all you can do w/o the car outfitted w/ said app.
