iDrive Navigation and Phone

Hi,

Wanted to see if others were facing similar limitations with iDrive.

I cannot seem to make a phone call while using the Navigation on iDrive.
Is this a limitation or another one of my dumb user problems?

Even though I have the old iDrive system I'll try that when I head out for lunch today & report back! I'll try phoning you..

Thanks Luke.

here's the sequence of events:

Nav on
Phone call comes through
Junkie picks up the call
iDrive / Car cancels the call after a few seconds
Junkie gets pist!

Gents - the iPhone works fine with Nav. It must have been the HTC !!

Solution - bin the HTC phone.

Problem solved.
