Nav Issue

I've searched through the various thread s for this issue w/no luck.

When in guidance on the nav system how can I display next couple of directions. For example, the map shows location & direction and the dashboard (center between speedometer & teach) shows the next turn/exit etc. But I'd like to know the next two or three turns/exits like I can do on my Garmin. There must be a way to display this.

Any help/guidance will be greatly appreciated.

Try using the split screen, arrow display. It will show next turn......

I think the OP is asking how one might access a "list view." That is, a written list of the roads and turns that are coming up along the chosen route.

This is a common feature on most navigation systems, but I also have not been able to find it in the BMW navi menu - or any other menu.

Ohhhh......

That would be nice. My old Lincoln LS had a "preview" function where the vehicle icon would travel the whole route. Kinda nice......

Push the iDrive controller to the left 2 times from the main Nav view, and select "Route Information". This will show the rest of the route and mileage for each segment. I don't think it shows the turn direction, but it will show you the route. I believe you can select a route segment and change it as well, but I have not done that.

I just press the "NAV" hard button, scroll to bottom, and select "Route Information".

It's awkward but I've come to accept it.

I use one of my programmable memory buttons to bring up the turn by turn directions easily and quickly as I find them more helpful that relying on the map at times. I also use it to review a new route to get a specific idea of where it is taking me, among other things. Just looking at the map overview sometimes just isn't enough AFAIC.

Position your iDrive controller on the instruction/screen you want, press and hold your selected memory button.

I find that the easiest way to do it is by voice command. While in guidance mode, just push the voice command button the steering wheel and say route information. After you are done, just say map.

I have young kids so voice recognition works stellar when they're home but crappy when they're in the car...

By god, you're right. I spent five days on the road this month not finding that menu option, but there it is. Thanks!
