: Program "Star" buttons with MMI Programmer

09-28-2012, 03:04 AM
Is it possible to use Dashsoft or related tools to program the extra "star" buttons (one on steering wheel, one near idrive controller) to do functions other than NAV Voice Repeat, Climate Control Recirculation, etc?
Ideally, I'd like to use the buttons as idrive shortcut keys (for example, get me directly to NAV destination address input menu, etc.)
Is it possible to add search capability in the Phone contacts menu (rather than scrolling a large amount of names)?
