iDrive POI Search
BMW iDrive POI search

The POI database is separated into a number of categories.

The iDrive navigation system includes a searchable POI database. The database includes a number of categories, and at one time each category had to be searched separately. That was somewhat inconvenient for people who weren't sure what category to search, so it's now possible to run a POI query of the entire database. If your iDrive system still has a limited search functionality, you can contact the service department of your local dealership to inquire about potential system updates.
