2013 BMW 535 Navigation/Radio shutting off

Hi everyone,

i have a brand new 2013 535. i have a problem with my navigation and radio shutting off by itself while i am driving. it will turn itself off and turns on by itself, almost like the system is rebooting itself. i have taken my car to the dealer 4 times, and the last time i went, they replaced the computer in the navigation system but yesterday while i was driving, the problem recurred.
does anyone on this forum have similar issues? what can be wrong?
i am tired of taking the car to the service department for the same issue.
anyone have any suggestions?
thanks.

Mein Auto: BMW 528i
I have a 2013 528i, and I'm having trouble with the navigation as follows:
  1. Fails to notify driver of off-ramp on freeway, along the route to destination (visually on screen, or voice guidance)
  2. Voice guidance gets way out of sync with actual position on route map.
  3. One time, the nav system was so confused, that the system literally rebooted itself during the planned route
  4. Voice guidance seems to be asleep most of the time.

Think it's ready for a visit to the dealership. Anyone else enduring a catatonic nav system?

It sounds like my parents X5. Nav turned it self on and off. In fact the whole computer did, all presets were gone. It was stuck one some random radio station but it was stuck different station every day, somehow all on non-English stations, weird.

Took to dealer , thank goodness that problem was still going on, so it was easy to diagnosis. It took them 3 days, basically, whole computer changed. Thereafter, the tech didn't like the reading, he took one more look, determined that HUD was also an issue. That was changed too. Basically, they took out the whole electronic module. It was all good now.

2013 535s have been out there since July 2012 - to help some of us who have had our cars a while be alert to this concern would you please provide (1) the in-service date (when you actually bought or leased the '13 535), (2) the date of production (from door label) and (3) the approx number of miles on your car your issue began to occur.

Thanks in advance.

I had the same issue and the dealer reprogrammed the head unit. Took 2 days, and it is solved.
