    d 2008 - iDrive reports incorrect location

    Navigation has been playing silly buggers for the last week or so Ė itís showing me as living in the middle of the Bristol Channel when in fact I live about 40 miles south of there!

    Iíve tried the hold both eject buttons and mute to reset the iDrive unit but no luck :(

    Reading on e90Post, a guy cured a similar problem by disconnecting his battery for 10 mins and then reconnecting and driving down the road. Iíve never disconnected the battery in the E92Ö is it likely to cause any unexpected gremlins?

    The E46 never minded but Iím fully aware that this thing is to all intents and purposes a 2 tonne computer with a few moving parts.

    Cheers guys

    Cheers mate. Just had a service today and had one of the turbo pipes replaced. Will wait until the sting of that bill has disappeared before risking disconnecting the battery

    On another note they gave my wife the franchise 'Manager's 12 plate 320d (doom blue SE with manual seats and a reversing camera - appalling spec). Much to my surprise and proudness she called me at work to complain that the car they'd given her was incredibly dull and she couldn't believe they made BMW's like it

    I knew I'd turn her... She even complained it was slow

    Just got around to doing this a minute ago. No joy as of now - I'm apparently still negotiating one of the busiest shipping lanes in western Europe - about 5 miles south east of Cardiff

    I'm hoping that when I actually move it off the drive it will try and locate itself again... fingers crossed.
