  3. BMW i4 Infotainment & Technology
    One of the main criticisms in reviews of the i4 is the lack of physical buttons for basic climate control features. Now that I have my car, I would agree. I hate touching and smudging the screen… Therefore I am surprised that AFTER you select the climate control button on the main screen, you...

    LATER EDIT: Looks only my car has a problem and it’s not suggesting charging points along the route. If anyone knows hot to fix this, I’ll be greatful. Hello! Unfortunately the BMW Navigation system on the iDrive 8 is not as good as the Tesla one. It doesn’t show you where to stop along the...

    Does anyone know if the Drive Recorder function works or can be programmed on iDrive 8 system while PARKED? I've had my M5 emblem stolen multiple times before, and with the 50th Anni emblem, not so sure if it's even a wise option to have. Or perhaps I should just invest into some dash cam with...

    This solution (12 min in the clip) will for sure be the next wireless charging solution upgrade in coming versions of BMW: Place for 2 phones in upright position facing driver and passenger, ”phone belt” and ventilation - and no usb charging port harassing. A bit later in the clip he says that...

    So I was requesting my dealer to change some financial conditions on the financial leasing plan (not the car options or anything), and the dealer stated to do that they must generate new agreement, no change to production. so far so good. Then they said some options changed in price, but very...

    Bjorn's iX 10KM challenge brough forth something really interesting. He was told that the i4 and iX share two different software platforms for the idrive Normally the number one reason for investing in different software would be different hardware. That would mean that any assumptions on what...

    So there are plenty of review videos that show only small portions/monitors of the new iDrive system, however I don’t see any in depth videos or reviews. Anyone have a good one they can share?

    Hello everyone I learned today, that due to chipshortage, the iDrive button / wheel will be produced whitout the possibility to write letters and numbers on, using your finger. The wheel-button simply doesn't have the hardware for that. Anyone have an info if this could be switched for at...

    Hi all, Went to my dealer last week for service and had a look around the iX they had there. Interior is amazing, and the 2 LCD screens are huge and super crisp. It even looks a bit like they're too big for the amount of content they display, but oh well, better to have a larger than a smaller...

    It looks like the chip shortage has an impact on the i4 after all. Not on the big display on the dash, but apparently on the touchpad on the BMW Controller. According to the user manual, the controller has some touch-functions as well (not push but touch). Yesterday I was trying out stuff on...

    Okay so that's a lie, but there's no accurate way of gauging the true charging speed. We somehow need to get BMW to add a small number showing current kW that follows the current speed inside the bar. Here's a quick illustration showing what I mean. It should litteraly take a single BMW software...
