My 2003 Nav Had More Features !

I have a 2006 330i (which I leased for 2 years and will be ordering a 2008 335i coupe very soon)

Previously, I had a 2003 330ci with NAV. WHY did BMW get rid of the feature which allowed you to spell all or part of a business name and search for it ?

Am I missing something ??

The latest iDrive update gives you this. Unfortunately, you can't just walk in and ask for it, you have to have something wrong with your software. Search for iDrive update and find symptoms that it fixes. If you have any of them, I'd recommend you ask for an update -- not only will it fix the problems you are having, but you'll have the search feature.

Now It's Shutting Down & Rebooting !

Just this weekend, my iDrive shut down by itself.
Last night, during a 20 minute drive, it shut down and rebooted THREE times !

This is the first major problem I have had with the car in 1 1/2 years.

That's pretty stupid that you can't just walk in an ask for them to fix it..

You cant ask them to fix it because there is nothing to fix. You are asking for an additional feature rather than a "fix".

However, since your idrive resets itself, definitely take it into the dealer and they will reprogram it under warranty.
