iDrive screen startup: random displays

Anyone else have this problem?

When i start my 335i, the initial screen varies from day to day and start to start. Shifting to reverse (I have the camera package), I usually get the three-camera display and no Park Distance Control display (but the audible alarm is activated). It takes a minute or two for the display to complete loading its info and that's when I get the PDC display and can then shift to the backup camera. But sometimes it goes straight to this display when I light off.

Now in Drive, I sometimes get the BMW screen and sometimes the lawyer screen. Hitting accept or timing it out, I then hit the button to show the nav map. Sometimes if says Nav Loading. Sometimes it goes right to my previous nav screen displayed. Sometimes if goes to the Nav menu. Sometimes it remembers my last split-screen setting and sometimes not.

When I shift to Sport, it always gives me the Sport Settings display. but when that times out, sometimes it gives me back my nav screen and sometimes it rolls over to the HP and torque dials.

There's more, but that's the flavor, a dice-throwing program to decide what I see next on the display after startup. Anyone else seen this or should I call a shaman and perform an exorcism?

Not quite this issue, but mine just becomes unresponsive and shuts down. I think more and more people are having trouble with idrive...
