: Review of new iDrive controller

04-21-2008, 11:40 AM
A new iDrive controller will make its appearance this year in both the E90 3er Series refresh as well as the F01 7er Series and it will have adjacent function buttons, la Audi and Mercedes-Benz, but with a design that should make BMW's easier to use. Our friends at BimmerFile sent us this spy photo of BMW's new iDrive controller which represents part of the four generation of BMW's cockpit controller system.

The iDrive controller itself is essentially a data entry instrument that controls curser position, data entry, and function selection. It controls:
Satellite navigation,
Telephone functions,
Entertainment (radio, iPod, satellite and digital radio),
Climate control settings
Vehicle settings and preferences.
