Angry Callers name blocked by iDrive button-description

Hi,

I noticed this annoying problem recently so Iīm not sure its always been there or not.

When someone is calling you the iDrive displays the name (if u have that person in your phone book) and their number on the screen.

The name is shown on the top row and the phone number on 2nd row.

The problem is the iDrive displaying the description of that button that happens to be pre-selected within 1sec thus laying the description text over the name of the caller. Only way to see the name of the caller is to scroll with the iDrive controller down so the description text goes away.

I wish it didnīt always display the description of the option you happen to be on, that it could be turned off or delayed more somehow but i doubt its possible. iDrive settings are more locked down than iPhone IOS.

Anyone else found this small but rather annoying problem?

I could take a picture to show if my description is hard to understand. Let me know!

Yup, same here. I also see the name in my extended instrumentpanel, but it is still annoying that the idrive blocks it.

I didnt know that. I have the extended instrument panel too, will try to check if the name is visible there.

I just canīt believe this issue exists, itīs like they didnt test it at all. Why else would the button-description overlay and block the caller name..


Thanks for the tip

I have the same problem. Another thing you can do is scrolling down with the idrive when someone calls and then you should be able to see the name too
