My Ride: e46 325xi
Radio/Navigation HELP!

Hey everyone! I just purchased my first bimmer (e46 325xi). I made the switch after years of owning vw's and audi's. I've searched the forums and I've searched around online and kill me if this information is posted somewhere and I just couldn't find it. Anyway, I cannot figure out how to preset radio stations, I can't figure out how to switch between functions when i hit mode, I can't figure out how to put in an address to use my navigation. I really can't figure anything out to be honest. I am blonde, but I am not this dumb I promise. I'm not sure if there's some kind of underlying problem or if I really just don't know how to use it. Does anyone know of a manual online I could download, or any other website/forum post or anything where I can get more information on how to use this thing? I've been researching for hours and I can't find a manual or walk-through specifically for an e46. Thanks to anyone who can help!

The manuals are available as PDF downloads at:


Scroll-down to appropriate year/model and select the "iDrive" manual; that should provide the necessary guidance on inputing addresses into the navigation system.
