Radio Stations and Listings

I purchased my 07 750 Li from Florida and it had all the radio stations from that area. Is there a way that I can either reprogram or delete the current listing and get the radio to find and store the radio stations/listings in the NY, NJ, region?

Not being rude but simple things like this can be answered by reading the owners manual.

Just so you know, I read the manual and tried doing the "auto list" feature but it did not work. The results were the same station listed on the entire list for each channel. It did not pick up any of the stations in my area automatically like it should have. Any suggestions?

Re: Radio Stations and Listings

Can you pick up stations by manual tuning. If not you have a bad antenna/tuner.

well you have to Manually set the station then you save it on the top numbered list. took me 5 mins to understand that system when i bought my car new. Midnight07 try adding them to the front list and please fiddle a little more with your idrive mate
