Navigate in iDrive to a function, push and hold the shortcut key you want it associated with.

Example: Menu > Navigation > Destinations > "Home Address" > Start (don't press 'start', just have the border around it). Then push and hold Button 1.

From that point forward, a press on Button 1 will start navigating you home without any additional input or effort.

A neat BMW feature: If you gently touch (not press) a shortcut button a banner appears on the screen that tells you what you've programmed there.
