Is it possible to reach the temperature control with the iDrive controller/knob? Does tilting down take you to the temperature setting? Is there any temperature setting in the main climate menu?

Just tried this and tilting down does not take you to temperature settings or do anything.
So easy to change on screen anyhow so would probably take you longer using idrive controller via climate menu. Voice activation works great to change temp also. Used voice also to turn a/c off and on which saves going into menu.

Hi @Eclipxe
Is there any specific reason you're trying to manage the temperature through the knob/controller?
I adjust the temperature quite a bit and in my seating position it is not easy to reach the screen. I like to just do everything via the iDrive controller. I also don’t like interrupting my music by using voice controls.

My seat position, is also too far back to easily reach the touch screen. You CAN change the climate settings with the iDrive controls, but it is even more involved than using the touch screen. I'm not positive, but I believe the BMW assistant is capable of making the changes for you, while you keep hands on the wheel.

Still waiting for my car, but can’t you choose items on the screen using gestures instead of reaching all the way to it?

You can assign two hand gestures (two fingers, open/close hand) to different functions (and the temp menu may be one), but temperature control lends itself very well to voice commands, including interpretive commands like "I'm hot" (and the temp will be lowered) - the assistant also recognizes which seat you are speaking from, so controls either the driver's temp or the passenger's, depending. Voice control on the iX is pretty impressive, and even allows control of the sunroof (open/close - "I am setting transparency to 100 percent").
