I just got my car, stuck a USB drive (100 songs to start) into glovebox USB slot and it loaded in a minute.
1. I put some MP4 format videos on there, but it didn’t recognize. Besides dvd, can you play video in any particular format with usb? I suspect no, judging from the manual.
2. How do I use the voice command to search for music or to just play a particular song?
This is a bmw 630i 2010 model, it has the new gear (same as the 2011 etc.) and new idrive.
On a separate note, the steering is so light when you start off, and is heavier at higher speeds. Is this the electric assist? Its quite good.
Not sure if the “active steering” is in this model (rear wheel turn dependent on speed)?
