  • It should be the best. Hard to believe but BMW has been doing this a long time, 13 years now. They were to first to combine multiple systems into one interface. The first couple of generations were horrible but never giving up and listening to customer feedback paid off. I would say the same for CUE and MyFord Touch but there is no excuse for them since Tesla got it right the first time out.

    allthingshonda: MyFordTouch was a particularly frustrating because they had such a good early start with SYNC but MFT was two steps back.
    As for iDrive vs. COMMAND, I haven't used either bur I wonder about the balance between better organization vs. more inputs. When it's not your own car you probably prefer the better organization of iDrive. But when it is your own car and you learn where things are, you might prefer the fewer inputs required by COMMAND.
