PDC front, random music - instant ON

Hi, it is possible to have parking senzor PDC instant ON? Wenn I put rear gear, they switch ON, but wenn I go normaly front and I want to park to the wall or car in front of me, they doesn´t work until I switch them with park button :-( - TERRIBLE

Random music - Everey time I want to listen random music from playlist or album I need to switch it ON, why it doesn´t remember it????

It is possible to coding these things?

You don't want them on at all time! Just think of how much they will beep in traffic...

You can program one of those 1-8 hotkeys to remember to select random. Just go to the menu selection where you pick "random", don't click it with the idrive controller just yet. Hold down one of the 1-8 buttons and then you can just hit that whenever!

This was the only thread I could find in the coding forum that covered the topic I posted at Park Distance Control (front).

Since this thread is several years old, I was wondering if in the last 4 years anyone has figured out how to activate the front PDC without having to press the button (i.e. front PDC is always on)?

Newer cars come with Auto PDC, I think one of the LCI versions have it. Older (pre-lci) doesn't have this feature.

Yeah my 440i GC has park assist and auto pdc. I accidentally coded my pre LCI 420d with auto pdc but it didn't do anything.
