A) what is the traffic map everyone keeps talking about
B) where is the setting for night vs day mode on the map (or is it only on the 2011s since that's what most ppl have who are posting on this thread)?

Solved the mystery. As UK cars have sat nav & FM/AM built into the idrive as std the 2 buttons assigned in the US to AM/FM and mode are designated 7 and and 8 and are programmable

You need a 2011.5 iDrive with COMbox

Why does everyone do the night/day one?

2011.5 has an automatic feature right?
I don't remember ever changing it in my 09 before..

Nice! Too bad that you're not in So.Cal. We track our Ducs quite a bit out here. I have about 4500 miles on my 2010 (..with more than half being track miles), and no problems at all. It's a solid bike!







Okay guys, sorry for the O.T. convo.....

....carry on!

Because you can't program whatever you're trying to program . It's basically phone numbers, nav addresses, radio/sat stations, and stereo sources (CD slot, USB, AM presets, FM presets, etc). I've tried to program several functions, like the DRL on/off one, and I get the same message.

***just a side note, some features need to be assigned in full screen not split screen mode...


also: just rearranged mine a bit:
1:Night Mode
2: Split Screen
3: USB/Ipod
4: CD/DVD (now that I have video in motion coded and working)
5: Vehicle Info
6: Idrive off

I was using "Map" as a dedicated button, but I can just use the "Nav" key on the center console by the idrive knob for that...

Perhaps it is limited to the newer idrive...I never used this feature in my '08 so I couldn't tell you, just that in my '11, "TPMS", "oil level", "display off" etc. do work. Hopefully some more '08 owners can chime in.
