Subject: [E36,others] OBC "memo" chime?
Has anyone figured out why the clock chimes
at 15 seconds BEFORE the hour, rather than at the
Hour? I keep having to explain to friends that
it must be german engineering.... Any thoughts?
P.S. Yes, I know I can turn it off, thanks. >>
In Germany, traffic and weather is broadcast every hour on the hour (as well
as at other intervals). This beep is simply a reminder for autobahn travelers
15 seconds in advance of each hour so they can tune in the radio in time to
catch the latest report.
