Programmable Memory Buttons are for more than just radio stations. Much more.

Old news, I'm sure, but probably worth reposting:



This is kind of lifechanging. The fact that you can program these buttons in this many ways is a major plus. You can program, for example:
  • Navigation to a destination (like to work or home from wherever you find yourself),
  • Speed dial your significant other,
  • Pull up analytics and stats (e.g. Sport Display),
  • Shutoff iDrive screen (for night driving),
  • Cancel navigation
  • Split-screen toggle
  • ... and so much more.

The fact that you can accomplish these things with these programmable buttons is worth the cost of admission alone!

OK, maybe I exaggerated just a little there at the end, but this is seriously awesome stuff! Oh, and you can simply place your finger over the button to see what you programmed on it.
