Select music track?

When I press the up arrow on the steering wheel, I expect this function to skip to the next music track on my USB device. However, it seems to simply replay the current song. Pressing up (fwd) twice skips to next track.

Wasn't like that on my 335i, is this typical behavior or a setting?

You have to press the down arrow for the next song. The up arrow repeats/goes to previous song.

Up is actually the back button. Down skips to next track. Best I can tell, they set it up as if it were looking at a playlist....i.e. down to the next song on the list.

yeah, massively confusing....down is always "next" for all selections, be it music, phonebook, radio stations...

There has to be a way to code it to inverse this, i always confuse it myself too.

one would think that if OP tried using the up arrow and it replayed the same track, and went to the previous track if pressed twice, that OP would try pressing the down arrow to realize that it is next track....instead, OP decided to make a thread about it. nice

Yep it is opposite from my 330i too... so the down arrow is the skip to next song. Very confusing in the beginning ... then I thought the DCT Shifter (not the paddle) also down = + gear / so I think the engineers made this sync same direction? (just my guess lol)

Think of it as navigating through the iPod menu rather than forward or back. The player cycles through music top to bottom, and I'm sure that's why BMW went to this control scheme.

If you click "up" you are trying to go either to the beginning of the song playing or go "up" your play list . Clicking down tries to go further down your playlist.

One would think a passive aggressive attitude such as yours would be better suited for 4Chan and realize this community is above childish comments such as that. Guess not. Nice.

You also fail to realize I was under the impression it was a configurable option.

WHS. The track list is displayed vertically, think of it that way. Instead of forward and back, it's up (to start of song or previous song), and down to next song.

Cheers
