Voice Commands List

Hi. Can anyone provide info on all the voice Commands for the 2017+ iDrive system with navigation? I wanted a cheat sheet so I can better utilize the Commands. Thank you.

Not a complete list but I used these:

"Sport Display"
"Navigation instructions on/off" to toggle the Sat Nav voice.

I think that BMW went with a cloud-based voice command (like Siri) in MY2016. Just say what you want and the system either does it or it will tell you what can be said instead.

Yeah you can use natural language and sentences, and the car will do it.

Like if I say "Text [wife's name] that I'm on my way home"

The iDrive will create a text message addressed to my wife that says "I'm on my way home" and ask to confirm the message before sending. It's nice because you don't have to make multiple statements to navigate through the screens. Just say what you want and it will navigate there and execute.

Basically anything the iDrive can show on the screen, you can dictate to get to that point.
