Exclamation New to the 2002 745Li; need some guidance

My 745Li is in the house and I wanted some assitance from current owners.

1. The previous owner could not find the instructional DVD which comes with the car. If anyone of you have one you can share please do PM. The car has so many features that it will be useful to view the DVD.

2. I want to change the home destination on the navigation. It continues to display the seller's home as the default destination when it starts and the city in the settings of iDrive. How do I change that? (The seller's old city appears on the top of the screen during nav)

3. How do I access the Logic 7 menu from the iDrive?

4. The front arm rest has some stuff in it which I have no clue about? It looks like a place where you could slide a CD but there is also another magazine to store the CDs near the glove compartment.

5. How do I get to home screen (with the 8 way choice)? I can easily move from one place to another (navigation->entertainment) but can not come back to the main screen.

6. How do enable PDC when I am parking into a spot. It comes on automatically when I go into reverse. However when driving into a spot it does not come on. Is there a way to enable it without having to go into reverse?

I am in the process of getting the delivery of my 745Li from BMW....but when I testdrove it I played around with the I-drive...and the sales agent explained me some bits of the car...so I will share those with you.......

6. PDC can be enabled right below the gear lever on the bottom right handside of the steering wheel....it will say P-something....pressing that will enable PDC and give a visual on the car's idrive screen!

5. To get to the home screen....shift the selector in the NORTHEAST DIRECTION (OR DIAGONALLY RIGHT) which will highlight Car settings and thus bring you to the main menu where you can see what option to access and in what direction.

4. Front Armrest has the place for your BMW integrated Cellular Phone and a CD Storage Magazine....and the dash-in CD changer is where you can play in your 6 cd's and access them thru the I-drive by going into the Entertainment section which is I believe SOUTH (direction or jus DOWN) Also, you can have your favourite CD playing... inserted into the front dash and hit the volume knob and change tracks on it without interfacing thru the I-Drive!

3. I believe if you have the Logic 7 option installed....you should be able to access it while playing the Cd's through the Entertainment Section....in the memory submenu...not too sure about that....but hitting that memory submenu should take you to the Bass Treble & Logic 7 settings...

2. Not so sure about that one...havent gotten a chance to play around with it that much yet...as I only went for a short testdrive

1. Good Point...infact I'm in the same boat as you for that one....a DVD wud be nice....but my vehicle doesnot have one coming with it....

THanks Folks. I have send PMs. I figured out the logic 7 thingy, it is in the memory settings of the entertainment menu.

You can also go back the home screen by pushing twice in any direction.

iDrive should come with an instructional video. They should store it in the car so anyone who is driving it can listen to it for a few minutes instead of cursing the system.

I received both a CD and a VHS tape titled "A guide to features and operations" when I bought my '03 745is. Did they stop giving those out with the newer models? The video shows you how to use just about every feature on the car and sure beats having to read the manual just to figue out how to adjust the radio. It even has an index of features so you find the specific feature you want to learn about. I don't know if it's still available, but the part no. on the box is 99-00-0-002-732.
