Unhappy Software bugs

Just picked up my 2013 X5- 35i diesel. Great car but 2 major bugs. First is that when iPhone 4s is bluetooth connected and I try to use Siri to write a text or respond to an email or search the web, hitting the microphone button on my iPhone makes the car dial my own phone number. Strange. Same thing happens when I use google maps and the woman's voice gives me step by step instructions. Anytime she speaks "Turn left on Main Street" the car dials my phone number.

Also, one other bug. When I turn off the car and have the climate control turned off, leave the car for a while, I come back, turn on the car, and the climate control turns itself on. Doesn't happen when I leave the car for short periods of time, only an hour or more. Again, Strange.

Thoughts?

My diesel does the same thing with climate control. I can't comment on Siri, because I find her next to useless, and haven't tried her in the X5.

My 335d does this. I take it as a convenience feature. It seems to remember the settings across a short shopping interval.

To take a famous line we always hear from our SA, " normal vehicle operation ". It's been like this for years.

I"m bringing the car in on Friday. I'll let you know what they say. This is ridiculous. I have to turn off bluetooth to use google maps and siri. I wouldn't care that much if the Nav system was good but it honestly sucks.
