Question another quirk i've noticed.

why is it that at the top of the satellite radio list it does not say the artist or song name that is currently playing yet reads:"fav alert deactivated"

is the only way to read/see what is playing is by activating entertainment in my second screen? thats annoying if so

You can switch it from Favorites to Name of Song or to Station name.

I don't want to hijack, so when this gets answered, can someone tell me how to program the "seat memory buttons" to act as a "favorites" button? I read somewhere that could be done.

push the i-drive to the left and then scroll to categories and select. Then go up to all channels and select and that will display the song and title.

I don't know what to tell you except to go back to the dealership and let your salesman show you what's going on --- I'm sure it's just something simple that hasn't been selected or unselected -- good luck!

You have a favorite set, therefore causing the alert but you also need to change the view from Favorites to something like "All" as you have it set to "Favorites." Start by removing all favorites- hit option then delete. Change the category to all, and your done. While you're at it change the view to channel or artist name. Since the steering wheel control view is only channel name I like iDrive to show artist.
