ID6 vs. OS7

Anyone moved from a car as per the subject? I'm currently in a G30 5 series waiting for my G20 to arrive, and spent some time in a mate's 3 and I find OS7 a huge step back in terms of ease of use. I'm sure it has its plus points in the terms of what it can actually do, but ID6 is a far easier system to use in my opinion - so much so I'm regretting my choice of car.

I had a M340d loan car yesterday and agree itís not easy to use compared to Id5 or 6. Itís like BMW feel the need to change it for changes sake. Apple havenít changed the iPhone, the functionality is basically the same all the way through. BMW take note!

ID7/OS7 is super simple as soon as you have some time with it. There are some strange hidden menus, but if there is something you use often enough just set as one of the favourites (hard button bar).

Yeah there's loads of menus within menus, and as as I can see if you're using CarPlay then you can't adjust the equaliser settings / bass & treble etc.

What version of ID7 are you on? I can definitely adjust my EQ settings while using CarPlay.

I liked ID6 in my previous car and had gotten quite familiar with the logic of its functionality. When I first started using OS7 it was a bit of a change getting my head around it. After having used OS7 for the past few months I think it's great and a big step up from ID6. Maybe in time you'll feel the same.
