Idrive Failure

The other day I left my car in a supermarket car park for 20 minutes. On return, I got in and started the car and noticed that the DAB radio was now playing AM - and had lost my pre-set stations. When I engaged reverse the parking sensor display did not come up on screen and so I decided to select nav and nothing happened. When I pressed the menu - I had lost all of my bluetooth, options and was basically left with a couple of menu options. The car didn't even know what country it was in, what time - nothing at all. It even showed up a picture of a 3 series when I went into vehicle info. It didn't even know that I had a professional sound system and said Bang and Olufsen.

Took it straight to the dealer who said the software had corrupted - they re-installed everything and its been fine ever since.

Has this happened to anyone else?

This car was brand new on 29th March 2013! Not impressed!
