Radio Pre-Sets?

Anyone ever had the radio presets disappear? It happen to me when I first got the car a year ago. Now it's happened again. Only AM/FM lose the settings the Sat keeps it's presets.

I Love LA. It lets me ride in the winter with the top down.

I had that problem the last time I brought the car in for service but realized that it was because I was using the spare key and that data is stored uniquely on each key.

I have something similar happen a couple of times a week. Only it is my Sat presets that will "disappear", they come back when you next shut the car off and it sits for a bit. Just turning it off and back on quickly does not bring them back. The FM presets are fine. Not only do the presets disappear but you cannot change to any other SAT station through the main list, they all disappear.

I took it back under warranty when I first got it and they updated the Idrive software. Didn't fix the issue. My wife and I just chalk it up to an Idrive quirk.

It happens to both of us and we each have our own key with our own presets coded. Maybe it just gets confused when we swap keys back and forth for starting?
