Idrive does not show song list after car turned off

If I start playing an album, I can see all of the songs for that album listed. If I turn off the car, when I come back, only the song that was playing shows up. The rest of the album songs are not listed. Is this what is supposed to happen or not? It is painful to have to go back through the menus to get the complete song list back. Also, the button the steering wheel that allow you go through the songs seem to work backwards. If I hit the "up" button, the ipod moves to the song below the current one. if I hit the "down" button, it goes to the song above the current one. Any thoughts or suggestion on how to fix?

Normal with newer software; my 550i does this.

Can't explain why they thought this was a good thing.

Yep, that's normal (or what passes for normal in BMW's world anyway)

Actually, if you get the new V27 update, it will fix this.
When you turn your car back on, comes back to a full playlist, not just the song.
If you have 6FL this is an important update, lots of fixes/improvements.

You have to ask (sometimes beg ) to get the upgrade, you'll actually have to complain about something for them to do it.

I am under the impression from the OP that we're talking about the ipod and 6FL.

As far as I know, there's no way to see what version you have yourself.
I guess you could tell which one you don't have depending on a few things, ie: If you press AC auto on, and the vent setting screen doesn't pop up, you have a pre-V26 version.

They will only update it if a problem shows. Doubt BMWNA will do much about this. Maybe, though, if you find a willing SA. But if the problem is there, and it is provable, then they sould fix it for you.

Well,
After the dealership trying to upgrade the software 3 times, it worked and my ipod issues are fixed and the system is more stable.

Not that it would help me, but why doesn't BMW somehow integrate the Dension unit? Seems like it has more ipod-like functionality.

The iDrive iPod option in my 2008 E92 xi works brilliantly with both my iPhone and iPod.

The place I would like an upgrade is to allow the iPod (ok, perhaps the iPhone has a better chance) to create new playlists without the need of iTunes.
