Just bought my 2008 535xi used and am still learning about all the cool stuff. My previous car was a 1997 528i so a lot has changed. The new car has navigation, bluetooth, traffic reporting, Ipod interface etc. Lately, while I'm driving, I get a series of tones and I can't figure out what they mean. It's 3 short tones, followed by a single long tone. Anybody know what they mean?

Thanks - reading the section in the manual on the clock wasn't high on the list. (How hard could it be?):)

I think all seller's have on their checklist to turn on hourly chime to vex new owners.
