    Slow Loading IDrive

    Just had the software upgrade done on a 2006 650. The iDrive still loads..well, sporadically. Sometimes it comes right up. Sometimes you are already backed out of the garage before the view of what you just ran over comes on the screen. Is this typical? Is there a cure?

    Re: Slow Loading IDrive

    i think this is a function of when the car comes out of sleep mode. for example if i am in a parking lot i try to unlock the car when it is as far away as possible so that when i get to it the system has finished booting up.-lex

    Re: Slow Loading IDrive

    That is a good point and in my experience true. I wonder, though, do any of you leave your car "unlocked" say in your garage overnight? I do and I have been having second thoughts about whether my car actually can enter "sleep" mode. I find my normal lawyer screen to last iDrive screen or to PDC as I back up out of the garage to be very quick each and every time. I also wake up the car in parking lots pretty far away so again my iDrive becomes active very quickly (~10 sec). If not in my signature I am at v25.01.00 or TDS E060-07-03-520.

    1) use the switch to turn it off as soon as you are going forward, if you cannot wait.

    2) ony the functions listed on the menu for the "Assistance Window" are available - radio is not one of those.
