The fix for this seems to be the iDrive firmware update, which is a DIY (you need a USB), with a download directly from BMW.

For those who have not done it, there are several threads out there. It does not mess with any coding you may have done. It also improves Bluetooth connectivity, album art display, and Chinese/Korean/Japanese character displays.

Have VIN ready, download from here, and instal:
