Extra Cold Car = Rebooting iDrive

Anyone experience repeated rebooting of their iDrive system when the car is extremely cold (+10F or lower)?

I will watch my iDrive screen reboot 3, 4 even 5 times until the car warms up and then it's fine. I do not have this problem in warmer temps.

Wondering whether it's just me - or the nature of the beast.

I never had such an experience but the temp rarely sinks to the teens in DC, and I cannot remember when it has fallen to the single digits, if ever - that is cold! Sounds like a very irritating gremlin to me. I would check it out with your dealer.
