PreSet's for Sirius

Greetings,

New to the forum. I just bought my wife a 2013 X3 and I have questions about configuring Sirus presets. I was able to set all of the preset stations up, but when on preset screen I see that station names, but I have been unable to set it the screen to show the artist name. If I click into the station I see the current song details, but I would like to see the details automatically when I go the preset screen. Any help would be appreciated.

Same experience

I realized the same thing. For some reason in preset mode, you can't get the artist and song data. I am not sure why since I was able to do that with the my 5 series. Hopefully, someone here knows an alternate way.

If you switch to the satellite radio menu, you can switch that list between artist/song/station name... but not on the preset list.

When I use the presets I just use the idrive and push it to the right to station info and select it. The only issue is you will have to do it every time you restart the car. I have a 2013 X3 also

Thanks, I found that option as well. Its annoying that BMW engineering didn't think to add title and artist to presets...for most of us that's setting we use to access channels.

Having only owned my X3 with the new iDrive for one month I found this feature to be annoying as well.
