2018 iDrive 6 Problems

I have been having issues with iDrive 6 since I bought my F15 in October. Comes down to two things.

1. It forgets that I am in the presets. So if I am listening to FM, I will start the car and it with be in FM instead of Presets. Same thing with SiriusXM. So each time I have to fiddle around to get back to presets.

2. It forgets what I had displayed when I turned the car off. I will have the map on the left and entertainment on the right of the display. I start the car and it either show the tiles or the vehicle menu. This happens once every couple of starts.

I just had it at the dealer for a software update. That actually made the problem worse.

Anyone experiencing this with the 2018s? Any solutions? The preset thing is driving me nuts.

Sorry, this happened randomly in my 2017 X5 40e AND 35d as well. Sometimes it would do this EXACT thing you are describing on back to back start ups. And yet sometimes the iDrive screen kept the info I had/wanted...and then just like that, next start up just what you are experiencing!

I upgraded my August 2016 unit from ID5 to ID6 and it appears to have no issues in retaining it's last display. I suggest try re-saving your personal profile again with the radio/navigation active on the settings as you prefer them
