Scotland Cannot get I pod nano Bluetooth working in car

I got a new I pod nano for christmas and it has Bluetooth. So, I was thinking it would work in the wife's 2009 mini camden which has the superb harmem Carden sound system. The car has the USB, aux port and Bluetooth etc. went out the other day and switched the Bluetooth on in the I pod, hoping that the car and I pod could pair, the same way our mobile phones do, however nothing really happened....
So, how does this work?
Cheers!

To be honest, I am not sure what Bluetooth does on my iPod, I can connect to my iphone and use that to get on the internet with it but that is about it, never been able to do anything else with it. Use the USB charger cable and plug it into the USB port, that works fine with mine.

Thanks for that -however dont think you can move tracks forward etc on the stereo oing that can you? i.e. you need to be using the i-pod to do this - not ideal if you are driving (or worse still if the wife is driving!) cheers anyway!

I have the multi function steering wheel and I can move back and forward through the tracks with either the steering wheel buttons of the buttons on the cd bit in the dash. I think you only need the BMW cable for video - i certainly got my ipod working with the charger cable plugged into the USB port.

I also loaded music tracks onto a USB stick and popped that in there and it worked the same as the ipod.

Thanks for that. We have a usb memory stick and whilst er dont have the steering wheel controls, we can use the stereo to move onto the next track etc.
Will try the ipod with the cable when out at the car next. Was just hoping it could have worked with bluetooth, saves the unsightly wires!
A good new year to you sir!

I have and old iPod that I always keep in the car plugged in and hidden in the cubby hole. If you can get a USB stick with enough memory I would shove the music on there and just leave that plugged in.
