Tip: iDrive Shortcuts

Want quick access to options / contacts etc within iDrive? navigate to the option you want, such as trip information, but dont click on it, just highlight it.

Now press and hold one of the 1-8 buttons on the dash for a couple of seconds, until you hear a noise. That button will now do whatever it is you were highlighting- from anywhere in the iDrive screens

really handy!

Nice feature...

Nice feature, I'm using it instead of idrive for main functions.

Another tip: if you don't remeber what you assigned to number, just put the finger on the number button, but don't press, it has touch sensor and it will show you assigned function in the top line of idrive.

Nice!

Thought that function only worked with Navigation systems, but it even works on my ´standard´iDrive!
