Reset the "Programmable Memory Keys"

Is there a way to reset the "Programmable Memory Keys" (The 1 - 6 buttons under the DVD slot)? I know you can re-assign them but I want to clear them instead.

Yes.. in the idrive settings under vehicle / tires there's the option to............ delete programmable keys data.

On both my '07 E91 and '08 128i:

From the Menu - Press i
Select "Settings" - press controller
Select "Vehicle/Tires" - press controller
Select "Programmable Memory Keys" - press controller
Select "Delete assignment..." - press controller
Select "Yes" - press controller

It seems the option only exists in CCC (DVD-based) iDrive. CIC (Hard drive based) iDrive doesn't have that option

how do you assign the programmable memory keys? I was able to delete them when i bought the car but it says something about pushing a memory key and the only one i know of is for the seats... I have a 08 335 with I drive. thanks! and can you assign them for both radio stations and phone numbers or one or the other?

I thought those were old programmed keys for radio. That def made some things easier for me such as night/day mode since automatic doesn't work, but I don't know how to reset them in CIC?

805beemer:
You select the function you want to store on the iDrive screen (be it an address, phone number, radio station, etc), then press and hold the key you want to assign for 2+ seconds.

It's also in the owner's manual. For the 2008 E90 335i manual it's on page 21.

justa3series,
That's what I am trying to find out

Daytona, (Probably grasping at straws here...)
I've noticed that some programming functions require the car to be idling & others require the motor to be off but the ignition on (so called "Radio-readiness").

Have you tried it both ways?

Also, I'm curious as to why you want to delete all of the settings.

You can store:

Navigation destinations
Radio Stations
CD
AUX
Phone Numbers

Check your manual under "Programmable Memory Keys" as to how to do it.

Press and hold the first and last shortcut key; you should be promoted to reset them all on screen.
I know it's a bit of a resurrection but nobody answered it and I had the same question.

Necro-bump!

By "first and last shortcut key", do you mean holding 1 and 6?

I tried that and it didn't work. It just assigned a function to either button 1 or 6.
