And, yes, iDrive has had its detractors. But in the week I had the car it ALWAYS came up on the same audio source/same station I turned it off on. MFT doesn't do that in three consecutive starts... It's position info or current audio source/program info never just stopped displaying for no apparent reason. And on and on I could go.
Hey, I bought the FoFo. I paid for MFT. But to defend it because other systems might be less than perfect, in the face of all the evidence that suggests MFT has been deeply flawed--in absolute terms and probably the worst of any OEM auto infotainment system yet produced--seems odd. Eepecially in this forum where removing a temperature indicator and shrinking album art were viewed as huge problems.
