G30 (2017 - Current)
The next generation 5 Series, chassis code G30, arrives at dealers in February 2017. Looking like a scaled down 7 Series and riding on the CLAR platform, the new 5 Series will have a focus on lightweight and sporty performance. Engines options will come from BMW's new B family for the 530 and 540 and a turbocharged V8 for the M550i. Read more about the 2017 5 Series

TOTALLY CONFUSED WITH M550 Settings

Had my AW 2019 M550 for a few weeks now and two little things are driving me bonkers.

1- When I start my car, sometimes it defaults to random satellite radio settings and sometimes it starts up with my presets checked. Of course I want me presets when I start my car

2-Also, when I shut of my car, sometimes when I hit the start button and open the door radio shuts off, sometimes radio keeps playing and only shuts off when I lock the doors? I want the radio to shut off when I open the door.

Are these two things related somehow? ...my F10 was so simple.......

Thanks in advance

#1 Mine does that as well. Two partial fixes: (a) depress media button (sometimes twice) to bring up the presets, then select the presets; (b) press mic button on steering wheel and say "presets". If someone has a permanent fix, that would be great.

#2 press the brake pedal while depressing on/off button.

You need to pause just about 1 second before opening the door after shutdown to be sure it all turns off. If you open it immediately, the electronics don't shut off. Also, if you have a passenger, the electronics shuts off when the last door is opened. Also, make sure you have the idrive setting to shut off upon exiting. You can press and hold the radio volume knob as another way to shutdown all the electronics. (Pushing the brake when shutting off the car may be the other person's coincidence).

Surely pressing the brake pedal while pressing the start button STARTS the car and doesn't shut it off?

sorry. I meant the opposite. Just press the start/stop button. The radio stays on but when you open the door everything shuts off.

My car does the same thing itís weird if I park the car get back in it goes from presets to say radio. Same thing with the car after park. But I think in the I drive you have an ignition off option thatís what shuts the whole car off.

Absolutely drives me crazy. I listen to preset stations exclusively. Every time I get in the car, I have to press mode five times to get to presets.

Drives me nuts too! One of the most annoying things about my 540. I lock the car to make sure everything is powered off now. Then, i realize I forgot something so I go back into my car. I have to unlock it again and listen to everything power up only for me to close the door and lock it again so everything powers down. Very annoying.
You might want to program one of the 7 buttons to take you to the radio presets. I know that means you have one less button to use for other things but you will use that button every day.
