Is it an hourly indicator or an anti-fatigue setting trying to make sure you stay awake on longer drives? That chiming was a setting in the older x5, don't know if its still a setting on the e70

I need check the time when it happens but it is not the temp because I had that happen and saw the dash notification. Like I said it is really random as far as how long I have been driving or speed it's all different every time. But thanks for the help

I also think it is the "hour memo". You can turn it off if it bothers you. It is in the manual I believe.

My wife was driving today and had a destination set on the navigation system and was talking to me through Bluetooth she mentioned she heard a beeping sound that she never heard before. She thinks it was a reminder that there was an upcoming turn. The voice was still active, but ata much lower volume.
