Discussion of BMW's 4th generation E65/E66 7 Series flagship. The E65 generated much controversy, due to its radical styling and iDrive user difficulties. Nonetheless, the E65 broke records to become the best-selling 7-series iteration ever, especially after its 2005 facelift.

navigation and stereo sound issue

This morning on my hour commute to work my 07 750 started a strange problem. I have researched and found nothing like what I am experiencing.

My navigation worked flawlessly yesterday on my 250 trip home from out of town. This morning it just says initializing... and it wont eject the disc.

Right along with that my stereo sound will cut out every 5 min or so and make a qucik high pitches sound for a brief sec then after about 5 sec of silence the sound comes back and works fine for another 5 min until it happens again.

I read somewhere how to reset the MOST bus system in the glove box so i unplugged that plastic ring for about a min, and that did not work.

Im thinking that if the stereo problem is being caused by the nav issue then all i need to do is figure out how to reset the nav and i should be fine, maybe thats me just trying to stay positive.

I have an appt at the dealer next week and I have 2000 miles left on my CPO and maint plan, however it specifically states it does not cover the stereo or navi.

Any info or help would be appreciated.
