2012 MCS Vert joystick

All,

Does anyone know how to change the scroll direction of the joystick? I have a bmw as well with their idrive and they scroll in different directions! (ive only had the mini for 2/3 weeks now!)

Thanks in advance.

No, no, no - you've got it all wrong. Since the OP has got used to the direction the BMW turns, that is the right way that all controls should turn.

One nice thing is how so many Brits think it is right for a switch to be moved down to turn on, whereas Merkans think it is right to move it up for on. And actually 'up for on' is pretty much right as that is how serious switches (including the ones in your consumer unit) work - the idea being that it is harder to accidentally knock something upwards, so 'up for on' is safer than 'down for on'.

Angib - that is EXACTLY right. BMW is always right...the nun, you obviously are not in the know..

unfortunately ive had the bmw for too long to get out of the habit!

down is up and up is down....maybe thats why americans suck at COD? ;-)

Seriously though its really bugging me, anyone know how?
