iDrive Crashed & Rebooted today

Today my iDrive crashed and rebooted after failing to play Pandora audio. Anyone else seen this?

Full Details:
2012 F10 and iPhone 5, running latest versions of all software, including latest from BMW update. Connected iPhone 5 via USB cable. Launched Pandora and could control channel via the iDrive interface as expected, but the audio only came from the iPhone speaker, not through the car speakers.

I unplugged the phone and plugged it back in several times, waiting several seconds each step. The iDrive display correctly allowed control of Pandora. The iPhone screen correctly showed the BMW connection. But the sound only came from the iPhone speaker.

Finally I gave up and started listing to XM Radio. About five minutes later and while I was driving, the iDrive screen went blank, all sound stopped, and the iDrive rebooted itself.

I have problems with my iDrive as well. Last week it displayed "NO SIGNAL" in orange letters and required switching off to clear the error and restart the navigation. This happened 5 times during a 50minute commute. Then it was ok for a week but today the error occurred again (just once) and then later the navigation froze and the system reset itself. I have the Professional navigation.

I also have another issue in that no matter what song was last played from the music collection it always resumes playback from one certain song.

Will be going to the dealer when I get chance.

You're not suggesting the software is written by Microsoft are you?
