BMW should send this car back to
Microsoft. The i-drive is worthless.
In theory, it is a good idea, but in
practice it sucks. Do you know you
can't listen to the radio in the car
when parked for more than 15 minutes?
The whole computer system has to stay
on and it drains the battery. The CD
has almost no functionallity. It
forgets where it was the last time you
had it on everytime. The voice
recognition is useless as it takes so
long to do anything. The navigation
system takes you to the wrong address
by making bad assumptions (and not
telling you about it). Overall, it is
a disaster and I will never touch a
BMW again. (I bought this model when
it came out and have suffered with it
for 3 years.)
