Mein Auto: 2013 528xi
Manual for Nav, Radio and Communications

Just picked up my 2013 528xi. Coming out of a 2010 model so the car is basically familiar to me. I generally just play with the car to find new stuff but I also skim the manuals to see what new stuff I may have missed. My car did not come with a manual for nav, radio and communications, even though the user manual refers me to that manual for information on those functions. I know there's a user manual accessible via iDrive and it may be there but there should be a print manual. Can't even find one online. Anybody seen this manual and did it come with your car? Thanks

Just heard from my client advisor who was away for a week. He's sending me the manual that was missing.

Downoad the PDF version from BMWUSA.com. Great to have on your laptop so you don't have to run out to the car (or post here) when you have a quick question.

Thanks. That's the first place I looked and couldn't find this particular manual. I found owner's manuals for every model but not this one. I'll look again though.

I had this issue too. Brand new 550 and no Nav/Entertainment manual. My sales person sent me a new one from...somwhere?

Anyway, I was unable to find a link to a PDF version. I would love if someone could point me in the right direction.

The car has a built in instruction manual built into iDrive and it's pretty comprehensive. Give it a shot.

I find the in car manual somewhat inconvenient and hard to use given the relatively small screen. It's certainly a good reference, but for actual reading and learning, I think it isn't entirely practical. For me, in my case, I much rather have a printed and PDF version.
