I apologize for not responding back then when you posted.
I didn't see your post until now.

To set a button for drive mode, go to the main menu and get to the driver mode screen where it shows "sport setup". Once you're on that screen pick one of the quick access buttons, push it in and hold until it takes, that's it.
If you go too far into the driver setup menu it won't allow you to use a quick store. If the screen you are on won't store, then go back one screen until it does.

I love the quick access for configuring sport mode, it's much quicker to get to with the button compared to having to use the scroll wheel.
I press the quick access, it goes to the "config sport" screen, I select enter, config screen comes up, and I select what I want.

If you can't get it to work, I'll go through it again in my car to see if I posted the wrong procedure, and I'll take some picts too.

All I have are phone numbers and frequent destinations in 1-8. Not very creative but works for me!

That's the beauty of the design and flexibility.

(1) Nav voice on/off (good way to have it repeat directions, etc)
(2) Nav Destination 1
(3) Split Screen on/off
(4) Random (BMW still does not believe its vehicles should remember the Random music setting)
(5) Climate Settings (ventilation)
(6) Satellite Images
(7) Call 1
(8) Call 2

BTW, Day/Night mode has an automatic setting now, so less need to make it a shortcut.

You should consolidate 2-3-4 to a single radio station from a shortcut off of your presets list and then use the scroll wheel (its on the steering wheel) to navigate through the rest. There is a post in this thread explaining it and I think it works great. Allows you to open up those other buttons for things like a favorite phone number, day/night mode, turn-by-turn list on one screen, and incoming messages (for texts and emails).

The trick is to push and hold the button on the item that you want to memorize just before you actually click the item.

For example, for sports display, from the main menu, select Vehicle Info, then scroll to "Sport display", but don't click it. Now push and hold the memory button you want to program it to.

This works for most of the things you can set to the memory buttons.

1 - Phone speed dial
2 - Phone speed dial
3 - Phone speed dial
4 - Phone speed dial
5 - FM station
6 - Sirius station (need to replace, since I just use steering wheel & presets now)
7 - Bluetooth Streaming Audio
8 - Navigate home

I forgot that just touching the button (without pressing) brings up a display showing you what it's programmed to do. An excellent bit of polish that I appreciate, and a huge step up from my E46.

This is kind of random, but I figured I'd ask here since we're talking about shortcut keys. I've programmed one of my shortcut keys to go to my radio "Presets", and it generally works fine when I press it (i.e. iDrive shows my presets). But sometimes I've noticed that even though my iDrive displays the presets, moving the scroll wheel on the steering wheel will bring up the standard Satellite channel listing in my HUD instead of my presets list. Pressing the shortcut key a second time always fixes this.

Has anyone else noticed any oddities with using the Presets as a shortcut key and the HUD?

I hadn't realised so many things could be assigned to the programmable buttons. A question i do have though, is how do you clear one once it's been programmed so that it's empty?

You can clear all of them by pushing and holding 1 & 8 simultaneously for about 5 seconds. I don't know of anyway to clear a single button.

Yes, it's a known bug with the most recent version of the nav firmware.

Prior to that, you could use the 'tuck' method which was to bring up the Presets list on the iDrive LCD screen, then push the iDrive controller to the left (push, not twist) and 'tuck' the Presets back under the source menu.

Then hit "nav" or whatever you use as your default and the Presets will stay on the HUD and stick upon restart.

Weird - I had the same issue. When I was taking delivery of my car, it wouldn't let me save Sports Display to button 8 (while the dealer was going over the features). Today I tried it again, and it worked.

Also, something cool I noticed is, these are touch sensitive buttons. You can tap on them to see what the button does.

You need to select the menu option and press the button to save, not to be in the page itself, in this case it will not save.

You can't clear (make it unassigned) a single button.

You can either program in another function to it, overwriting the old one, or push and hold both 1 and 8 which will clear all 8 keys.
