What do you use your "memory buttons" for?

...besides the usual radio stations or calling a contact?

Don't put the wife and girlfriend next to each other. You might dial the wrong number by accident. Separate it with the lawyer or liquor store

I agree, you should put the fun stuff together like the girl friend, fun fat chicks and strip club and seperate them with the not so fun stuff, such as the wife.

I have an unconventional one, for the Tone - Surround effect. I like the surround effect, but some talk radio sounds echoey so I like to turn it on and off quickly.
My 2013 E46 had a little speaker button near the ashtray for this, and I got used to it.

Great handle! SAVE FERRIS on the town water tower was one of the best gags.

One of my all time favorite movies. Made my teenage kids watch it with me a couple of years ago- they loved it.

I like slender chicks, never have been a chubby chaser. Now my friend G.U.E. - he'd go after anything.

Now, my real memory buttons:

1. NAV Home
2. Wife- Work
3. Wife- Cell
4. Daughter Cell
5. Son- Cell
6. Fav AM talk station
7. Fox News
8. Fav FM Station

Shout out to my Bimmerfest friend north of the US border. Good man here; super helpful, insightful and friendly. I've been spending most of my time in the 5 Series section. Nice to see a post from you. I hope all is well!

What do you use your "memory buttons" for?

I use one of my presets to toggle on/off night display of nav maps. Another for home phone. Another for significant other 's cell.

Good reading, but what memory buttons are you talking about? The ones on the radio?

Is the "Route List" option available for MY 2014? I can't seem to find it!! I even tried the voice command "root list" (sic) and it displayed traffic list. Am I missing something?

Are you trying to get a list of the turns on your nav route? If so, "Route Information" is the voice command that you're looking for.

And yes, the eight "radio" buttons can be set to a lot more than just radio stations.
