Question How to set idrive memory locations in Apple Carplay?

Hi,

I had a favorite set to Apple Carplay's Now Playing screen. After deleting presets, I cannot figure out how to get that preset back. No matter what I try in Apple Carplay, I get 'Unable to Save'. I've tried setting the favorite via the following:
  • With 'Play', 'Up Next' or nothing highlighted
  • Inside the up next area
  • On the main apple car play with 'Now Playing' highlighted
  • On the main screen with 'Music' highlighted
  • On the main idrve screen with 'apple carplay' highlighted

Does anyone know and remember the secret to setting this fav?

Background:
I recently decided to delete all my idrive memory function presets (favorites). Turns out you push and hold 1 and the world (connected drive) button for 5 seconds and you're forced to delete them all. You cannot delete them one at a time.

Anyways, now I want to set them up again. I've solved most of my map requirements, but I can't figure out how to setup a fav to the 'now playing' screen of Apple Carplay.

Have you tried going to the media tile, opening it and then scrolling down to the “now playing in Apple Car Play” and then saving the highlight?

  1. Press voice button
  2. Say, "Manage Mobile Devices"
  3. Scroll to "Now Playing in Apple CarPlay"
  4. Store favorite

Neither of the above two worked however yobyot gave me the idea of getting to where you select music collection, cd/DVD, now playing in Apple car play, USB. From here and highlighting Apple car play I was able to set the fav.

This may have been where yotbot was telling me to go and maybe I goofed his instructions heh.

Thanks folks!
