reverse the nav zoom rotation on control knob

Howdy

Everytime that I rotate the iDrive button to zoom in or out I am using the wrong direction.
I guess I'm using the turn right for zoom in (similar to screwing in a screw) and turning
left for zoom out ..

Am I the only one doing this.. I wonder if I can swap the wires to get the direction that's intuitive to me

if you look at the picture on the screen its a scale sort of and as you turn the dial to the right the red dot moves down the scale and the scale size goes up. Would make sense to turn to right to mnake bigger and left to go smaller though

Same here

Just got my 330d with iDrive and I find the same issue very irritating. It just does not feel normal...

Compared to the contortions that almost any Microsoft product puts you through, I'd say this one is pretty inconsequential.
