Using playlists...

I'm using an Ipod and also playing my music from a playlist.

When I select Random in options, randomly scrolling to the next song works fine via steering wheel/center console buttons, also selecting a different song via Idrive knob works too.

Now when I turn off my car, and turn it back on, only the random works. When I try to select an individual song via Idrive knob, it doesn't do anything and I have to go back to where it shows all my playlists, select the same playlist then select the individual song, but then I'd have to select "random" again.

Does anyone else experience this or am I the only one? I've gotten used to it, but I was wondering if this was just how the Idrive/Ipod is setup or if my car needs a trip to the dealer. Thanks.

This doesn't appear to be normal behavior. My '08 works fine with my 5th gen iPod in that I have no issue selecting specific songs via iDrive, and it remembers whether it was last on random or sequential.
