Hi,
Sometimes while driving, I hear a beep sound like "DID DID DID DIIIIIIIIIIID". No Warning sign in computer and dashboard. I don't know what is that. Is anyone know what is this beep related to? Thanks

Hour memo? Check your iDrive.

Does anyone know why BMW even put in this "feature"? Seems to create more problems than any convenience it may offer.

These threads crack me up. Always "random" and "sometimes"! :)

Sometimes random like exactly every 60 mins!

Some where in iDrive, there is this setting. If it's set to ON, it will beep 3 times every hour (or every 60 minutes depending on how it's set).

I know what it is but I have no clue what it's for :rofl:

Makes sense though. You rarely drive the car for more than 2 hours. So if you just drive it like 15 minutes 4 times a day, it seems random :)

lmao. I didn't know of this Hourly chime thing when I first got my car and made the same post as you did.

Go into Settings - vehicle/tire info - date time - turn off hour chime
