Fast forward?

Is there a quicker way to fast forward media than holding the forward arrow(next to the hotkeys)?

I've been listenting to podcasts via external usb that are an hour long. Holding the forward arrow only skips 7 seconds at a time. If I want to listen to something 40 minutes in it's going to take forever to get there.

Am I missing something?

Not that I can find.

The fast forward and reverse doesn't even increase the advance time the longer you hold it down. It seems to take forever to FF to something.

You would think there would be some sort of iDrive control over this. The iDrive wheel is perfect for this kind of function, but all it will do is skip tracks when clicking on buttons.

That's why I figured I was missing something, thinking maybe I could scroll with iDrive. Bummer

When I stream podcasts via Bluetooth I skip to different sections/songs within the podcast using my iPhone directly. Not sure if you have control of your device while connected via USB though as you describe.

That's fine for a phone, but what about stuff on a memory stick or loaded on the HDD?

Plus, playing with the phone while driving is expensive in CA.
