I drive best setup

I have had my first BMW for 3 days now and really enjoying it . I have the I drive with prof. Sat Nav with iPod connected. I was after some tips for best setup, what I should have ticked and what not?

I current notice that the scroll wheel on the steering dues not change the tracks on the iPod just repeats the same song !?

Any recommendations would be appreciated. Thanks

The scroll wheel goes through the current playlist - you need to make sure you're not just selecting one song in the first place. If you don't set any filters then the scroll wheel will go through the entire iPod.

I have the nano set as random so I suspect this is the reason. It's a shame as my previous cayenne did it gone with random set

My scroll-wheel works on random - iPod touch. However, I set "random" within the i-Drive rather than on the device itself.

If I set the nano on songs with no shuffle and the idrive on random I still only get the one song. I don't have any playlists set could this be the issue?

I have no playlists either, but I make sure that everything is set to "All", (i.e. All Artists, All Albums, All Songs etc) and then set the i-Drive to random.

Can anyone help why my 6th gen nano won't display the song list using the scroll wheel in the steering it just shows the current song playing

Random is selected on the idrive but not on the nano

Plug a usb stick with some music in and see if it then works. If it does the issue is with the nano...
