Default Combox retrofit, possible to code bluetooth features??

Got a 2010 535 and recently installed a combox. My only purpose was to have bluetooth music streaming without having to use the aux port.

It streams, but how it is set up is clunky. It doesn't automatically connect to my phone, or resume playing on turn on. To get it to start streaming, I have to select AUX and then the phone so that it switches into the phone/bluetooth mode.

Also, I thought the steering wheel buttons worked for a moment, but they do not any more. Not sure if I changed a setting on the phone or car, but I believe that they should work.

Anybody run into these issues and know a solution? Thanks.

Update: Now that I've had it in for a couple days, I've noticed that the combox automatically connects, but I still have to select AUX first, then Bluetooth. Once I do that, the music starts to play. Not a big deal, as it's a lot less steps, but I'd prefer if it just played automatically.

Also, I have confirmed that the steering wheel buttons do not work, that I'd like to fix as changing songs on the phone while driving is not wanted.
