Steering Wheel Radio Presets?

2007 X3, NAV, No SAT radio

When using the steering wheel up/down buttons to go through the radio preset stations, I notice sometimes it will go through all the FM modes 1 & 2, but at other times it will only go through a single FM mode and go through the same stations.

For example it will only toggle through stations in FM1 mode but at other times it will switch to the FM2 stations.

Is there a setting for this?

No. This is not expected behavior. The MFSW sends the same signal each time you press the button. The radio interprets them as it sees fit.
