GOVERNMENT INSPECTION DEPARTMENT MISUNDERSTANDING
Drive ends in the middle in the station
Again a case for the slogan "confidence is good, looking is better": Because a driver did not understand the data of his navigation system correctly, its travel ended roughly - on the rails of a station.
Karlsruhe - an unusual sight was offered yesterday 1 of the Karlsruher Albtalbahnhofs to the waiting at track, when instead of the expected course a black BMW rolled over the rails. The 64-jaehrige driver brought its cars the inside one the station to a halt.

The man was wrongly bent, because he had misunderstood obviously the data of his government inspection department system. After driving through the paved rail range it continued its driving in the geschotterten range, where it came to some meters to a halt.
On Monday a Freiburger driver had rammed stairs, because he had paid attention to the navigation equipment instead of on the road.
Amen. I miss the days of plotting my course on a big fold out map. Even Yahoo/ Google maps take some of the fun (and pride) of figuring out how to get places with more rudimentary tools.Ya know I can read maps and directions, I don't need a device to explain it to me as I go.
That is the problem though, most only get liited time. It is easy once you spend a little time with it. It is like almost any technology. the MMI is just the same.
I don't own a BMW anymore 2 audis for the moment...I know you're an owner so you're probably going to be more defensive about this, but there's NOTHING intuitive or easy to use about iDrive.
We will have a new X5 in a year or two though Just letting them get the bugs out of the re-designoh yeah. I forgot you got rid of the X5. Nice move BTW. The A3s are siiiiiick.
It is the same reasn you probably have a HU you have to go to different screens to change bass treble etc rather than the good old knobs on OEM units in the 80's.How much more at your fingertips do you need? You stretch your arm out and make your adjustment. Having to take your eyes off the road to adjust your HVAC is simply stupid. I'll never buy a car with that crap in it just like I'll never buy a car without a REAL clutch.
