7 Series - E65 / E66 (2002 - 2008)
Discussion of BMW's 4th generation E65/E66 7 Series flagship. The E65 generated much controversy, due to its radical styling and iDrive user difficulties. Nonetheless, the E65 broke records to become the best-selling 7-series iteration ever, especially after its 2005 facelift.

It's my son's car. Display is frozen, not displaying the normal view, some CD player functions not working. I can find out more, but I have to ask him first.

Try to reset on the entire car. Disconnect The negative battery terminal in the trunk. Leave it off for about five minutes and then reconnect it see if that clears it. See if he's getting any kind of error message from the navigation drive. And ask him if he has any other issues with the iDrive controller. Another words can he view radio functions and not the CD functions. When you say CD functions are not working. Ask him if it's the single cd unit, The multiple cd unit above the glove box or both?

Here is a thread you can read in the meantime. It may be some help.
