I am waiting for my iX to be delivered in a couple of weeks, but I had the opportunity to sit in an iX and play with iDrive. While it is slick, and the response is snappy, I was a little frustrated with the GPS view and the route planning capability.

I was not able to figure out how to enable a 3d map view to give the view a more realistic look. Has anyone figured this out so you can give your map a better view?

Also, I asked the car to drive from Denver to Las Vegas, NV and it set up the route, but did not calculate in the number of charging stops nor the amount of charging time at each stop. Is this available and did I just miss this feature? I have owned Tesla, Audi, and Porsche EV's and they all had this capability.

Thanks in advance.

I was wondering if you already checked this video on YouTube? Although it's a bit old, it could still be of some help.

Thank you for sharing that. Unfortunately, that video just reinforces how 2015 the map looks - no realistic 3D view to provide a real look and feel to a map. Hopefully, BMW will update it to reflect an improved map look. My Taycan can do this within its map feature, and Porsche has never been know for modern user interface features.

Oh! I am so sorry the video wasn't useful enough. Let's hope BMW updates things so they are a bit easier to operate.
