IDrive reboot while driving

Hi all,

I was driving home from work tonight and I was scrolling through my music (which is on a USB thumb drive) and all of a sudden it locked up for maybe 10 seconds and then everything just went black and the whole system rebooted. Any ideas? Has anyone had it do this while in the middle of driving!? Thanks!

My IDrive on a previous E9X vehicle rebooted continuously. They had to re-install new software. If it persists, take it to the dealership.

Yes, i had the same issue a few weeks ago. All in the sudden the screen went black while radio kept playing. After a few seconds the screen restarted. It even did this 2 times within 10 minutes.

Ok, well I'll just see if it happens some more and take it to the dealer if it does. Thanks!

Unfortunately, that's the downside of having computers in cars.. just things that can go bad. How many times are we restarting our computers? It happens.

+1. It's a computer with software. Im in the business and I can tell you that regardless of how hard we try, software will always be released with bugs. I dont know of any software that's bug free
