[Fixed]iDrive issues with iOS 8

[FIX: simply rebooted iPhone and problem was solved]
So I'm having some issues with iDrive and my iPhone 5, not sure if it's related to the iOS 8 update but issues have arisen after the update was done.

If connected via Bluetooth I cant change anything from idrive everything must be done from phone.
while connected via USB:

When I pick a song it does not play right away, I have to press play on my iPhone for the song to play, I can go to the next and previous song and the next song will start up right after switch but if I pick a song in the playlist using the heads up display songs won't switch, I'll get a check mark next to the song title but no song change.

Also if I switch playlist and pick a song via iDrive I have to press play on my phone for the new song to start playing

I resynced my iphone via bluetooth to see if that would help but no success.

Anyone else having a similar issue or know of any advice for troubleshooting ?

PS: also, my satellite radio won't show my favorites, I can add stations to favorites but when I go to the favorites menu nothing is there

my car has 2900 miles on it

Always happens when a new update comes out. Give it a few weeks.

Clyde, did you have to have your satellite radio activated by the dealer?

No I called Sirius to activate, at first I only had half of the channels so I called them back so that they could resend the signal, I have all channels now but can't add anything to a favorites playlist, I wonder if the issue is from Sirius or from the car

Just fixed it. Had to turn my phone off and back on can't believe it was that simple and I didn't think of it.

As for the satellite radio thing. My faves were in the preset menu which can be accessed from the beginning radio menu

Interesting. The only issue I have at the moment is the album art not changing when I am using Spotify. This is the same issue I had on my F30, ugh.
