2009 BMW 750i: Seat Calibration
July 31, 2009
Yes, seat calibration. It's what our longterm 2009 BMW 750i requested upon shutdown yesterday with a ding and this message. Apparently HAL lost track of where in its range of travel the driver's seat was.
Here's what the owner's manual--accessible right on the spot with one turn and press of the iDrive knob--had to say about it.
I suppose this is used to ensure the seat memory functions are accurate, but they seemed to work normally.
I obeyed the electronic overlord's prescribed instructions, though, and motored the seat all the way forward and then back to my normal driving position. This seemed to please the machine.
