Can't stand the radio display

Since day 1, I've regretted not getting Navigation. I can't stand the radio and ipod interface in our cars.

I want to be able to scroll through, for example, a 100 song playlist a lot quicker. Right now the only option is to rotate the tuning knob 90+ times to scroll down the bottom of my playlist. Hell, even if there are 50 songs in my playlist, I almost never have the patience to scroll to the bottom 50.

I'd like an interface kind of like the Bluetooth phone interface, where you can Alphabetically search for a contact. Anyone else have this pet peeve?

So some of yall know what I'm talking about. I've tried using the track scroll vs. list scroll and although it is faster, I don't find it a greater benefit. Unless you know the track before or after the song you're looking for, it's a constant back and forth scroll.

The worst part of all this, is scrolling thru the list keeps eyes off the road. The navigation lists like 10 songs at once, and scrolls quicker, therefore it is much safer.

And although the BMW Station for iphone fixes the functionality issue, it's definitely not the solution for me.
