Silent satnav!!!

Chaps and Chapesses

On my annual trip down to Cornwall this morning. Uploaded the route into the idrive no worries.

But I'm not getting any verbal commands from the satnav. Checked obvious stuff. Volumes and that the verbal instruction icon isn't crossed out. Still nothing. Not even cutting the music out.

Also weirdly the voice command thing isn't doing anything. I press the button on the wheel and I get the icon on the screen but no gong to be able to give an instruction. Has anyone had this before and can offer a solution before I finish my coffee at the services?

Ps - admin feel free to move this to the techie bit. Forgot this is prob wider than just e90 when I started!!

Thanks in advance everyone

Is it the DVD or hard drive version? Mine also does this from time to time (DVD) I just take out the disc and clean it. Always seems to do the trick.

Cheers. Weirdly mid journey it just started working again. It's like she just decided to have a lay in this morning!! And voice commands got up at the same time. Maybe they were both out on the lash together last night or something!

Anyway, all good and thankfully not an expensive trip to the dealer. Although would've prob been a warranty job anyway I'd hope.

FIO I've got the HD version. Since learnt this afternoon you an do a reset by holding the volume button for 25 secs. I also found I needed a software update which I streamed into the car. Maybe that was it.
