If only your key is around, the car should have switched to your profile. If two keys are close to each other, then the car may sense the wrong key and pick the wrong profile.
There are two easy ways to make sure the car has switched to your profile when both you and husband are traveling together, and you suspect that the profile is incorrect. If you are OUTSIDE the car, grab and HOLD the door handle for 1 to 2 seconds. OR, if you are INSIDE the car, press the unlock button in your remote once (no need to press lock first).
Each profile has separate seat memories, radio station presets, memory buttons assignment, last used iDrive display settings etc. So if you program your seat memory under your key, you cannot access that with your husband's key (each key has two seat memories). You should also make sure you have set your iDrive for seats to go back to last used. You can "rename" your profile to under your name instead of #1 and #2. But don't change the profile through iDrive, use my two methods above; unless it's for guest/extra member profile. Otherwise it will be very confusing next time you drive the car.
You can also program one or two radio presets or memory button assignment to be different from that of your hushand; this way, you can quickly tell which profile the car is using.
