erase stored date in idrive

i am returning my 2009 335xi tomorrow ( picking up an 11 335CAB ) and want to erase the stored information in my idrive. i dont want the next owner seeing all the destinations in the navigation, cant figure out how to delete everything. a buddy of mine picked up a used 535, and he had all the previous owners info in the system

any one know how to erase or restore system to factory defaults ?

Sounds to me like you don't want the wifey seeing where you go? haha JK, there is a reset procedure, but im not sure if it clears the data.

Try going into your idrive settings menu and clear all data. That might work?
