I have recently bought a 2018 Renault Megane Dynamique Nav, and when I connect my IPhone 7 Plus through Bluetooth it will not allow me to play multimedia. I can make and receive calls no problem through the R-Link Bluetooth, but when I go to multimedia the Bluetooth icon is greyed out even though it does show ‘Aaron’s IPhone’ to be connected. When I go onto Spotify to try and play music to see if it just plays it just keeps pausing automatically on my phone instantly! Anyone have any idea how I could sort this out?
I experienced the same and found a solution on the net that i was a little sceptic about, but worked! You need to download at least one song into your apple music app for first use of the streaming service. Do that and you will find the bluetooth streaming icon on your r-link system not grayed out anymore. Start spotify (or another music app i guess) and all will work fine, also in the future. Good luck!
