Random song titles question

Have the High End audio system. I like to play tracks off my ipod in random/shuffle order.

My question is, how do I get the system to play the tracks in random order and stay that way? ie whenever I turn off the ignition, and restart the car, it always defaults to playing the tracks in alphabetical order again and I have to check the "random" box on idrive again.

it appears that its only random if you let it get to the end of a song. If you go to the next track, its still alphabetical. Sucks!

This is not the case-go to screen on the right and click random-it SOMETIMES goes away and needs to be redone but not every time car is turned off-and yes sometimes going forward makes it go alphabeticaly but if you go nd redo random it will eventualy work.

so you can get it to the point where when you hit UP on the steering wheel controls, it chooses a random song?!

I have the same annoying problem. Random works for me but it always reverts back to non-random if the car has been turned off for an unknown period of time. If I shut the car off and come back a few minutes later, it seems to remember it. But if it's left overnight, it defaults back to alphabetical, non-random.

Would appreciate any tips anyone might have to make the "random" setting permanent.

I decided to do an experiment last night and it worked.

Typically, I turn off my iPhone overnight as it recharges for the next day, but it occurred to me that this could be what is causing the bimmer to go back to the regular alphabetical list of all songs.

Well, last night, I left the phone on while it charged and sure enough, when I popped it in my car this morning, it resumed from the previous spot and Random was still selected.
