Mine works completely fine, though I do agree that some places need to be updated and I dont know why some places that are very well known arent stored on the disc. I will eventually get the upgrade.

I honestly dont know why iDrive is considered so bad, I think its fine and I've used Mercedes and Audi navigation systems too.

Yeah, like I said, mine HAS the find by name command, but it doesn't work right. It can find stores through the category menus, buy won't find them by name search. If I increased the range in the name search, it found some WalMarts in another state. But there was one less than 10mi away and several within 50mi. If your name search actually work consistently, you're lucky.

Not a perfect system.
But I wanted to have Idrive. No regrets.

Not perfect but no regrets. I find the overall POI's to be weak but they were on my Garmin C330 as well. This has more to do with the database than the controller. Some day hopefully we can get POI updates for your area via satellite

On the other hand I love the I-drive.

My old IS350's NAV was AWESOME.
