This is so you can (for example) have cold air blowing on your face even in winter when the climate control is blowing warm air all around the cabin.

In this new X3, the central face vent temperature control is buried in the idrive menu system, rather than just being a dial on the dash.

Like this:

^ What he said. On the G01, you hit the "menu" button on the left side of the climate controls, which kicks the iDrive into "climate menu" and now the previously physical dial between the two middle vents is now a digital dial on the iDrive.

I just pinch/push out to zoom on mine. But can someone tell me how to change the actual direction it's showing me travel? I get that the arrow is always pointing NW/SE etc. But i'd prefer it if I was always traveling "up" on the map, regardless of the direction I was going. It's annoying to be going forward buy my arrow is going down. haha.

- have your actual map showing on the screen.

- hit sideways on the idrive controller.

- go down to the map view option.

- choose "direction of travel", or better yet, perspective.

you can also change the autozooming feature here (I hate it).
