What functions did you assign to 6 programmable buttons?

I have the car for a month and 1300miles now, but whenever I'm in it, I can't do anything else but drive it

So far, I programmed 3 keys:

6: turn-off the display
5: night-mode for the map
4: turn on/off split screen

What other functions did you guys find convenient to assign to the shortcut buttons?

ps: This is 2011.5 so I already have buttons for cd/nav/etc for quick access.

Programmable buttons you say, where they be? I take it your referring to the buttons under the radio screen?

wow, i never knew those 6 buttons were programmable. I thought they were for the CD changer, and the only programmable key was the button under the M-button.

I learn something new about my car everyday! Yay!

The buttons numbered 1 through 6 on the lower dash. Not sure if you have to have iDrive.
