Navigation Gas

I was wondering if anyone has went into their navigation and click on information and then clicked on vehicle then click on gas station then click okay. the gas station (PUMP) icons will apear on your nav screen. but mine wil never go away i tried eveythink like re-clicking on nav/info and reslecting then closing i tried delete all listing, delete current listing... non of this works thier is s a gas PUMP every few miles that shows up on my screen, sick of looking at them. what if i click on food the food and gas will apear, maybe its a sign...from the BMW alliens.

Do 7's have the same iDrive system as the 3 series? In my Nav screen, there is a legend on the left side of the screen. If you choose the symbol "i" it will toggle the icons on or off, depending on what POI you searched for.

Select another icon such as BMW centers, and the nav. will show that instead. I do not know how to make the icons totally disappear. Like you, I've tried all the choices, etc., but at least fewer icons will be shown.

The iDrive in the 7 is quite different than the other BMW models. The simplest solution to get rid of the unwanted icons is to do as jek889 suggests, choose a destination type with few locations like BMW dealers.

I was thinking that a software update might be in order, but i have no way of checking the current version the 745-faq's does not help with this year.
