Welcome to the new world of driving.
So we all have - in effect - bought iPhones on wheels.
My touch screen froze and I performed the screen reset procedure (hold down both scroll wheels until the screen goes black) - this resolved it.

I have had the car since the beginning of June.

I assume this will happen again - how often does this happen to ya'll - just curious?

I’ve done it a few times over the last 3 years for various reasons. It’s probably crashed and rebooted spontaneously once or twice as well. I wouldn’t worry about it unless it keeps happening in similar ways on different software versions.

The first time it worried me, I was driving on the freeway doing 70 MPH, on A/P. Kept driving and in about a minute all was back to normal.
The second time it annoyed me because my passenger freaked out. Despite my assurances that all was well. After the car rested for about an hour, all systems normal.
I say, "Its a computer that drives, these things happens".

First time I had to reboot today. I think it was because I read this thread! The screen was displaying okay, but I was unable to selecting anything (music, A/C, etc.). Touching any of the icons would do nothing. So, pulled over and rebooted. Then all was okay again. ( I have rebooted previously for whatever reasons, but this was the first time I needed to, as the screen was froze)

I've had my M3 since 9/20. I've only put 5300 miles on it but have never had this problem. However, lately when I get in the car the screen stays black for perhaps 2 seconds instead of lighting up right away. That doesn't bother me and I'm assuming that has to do with the last software update.

My 3 does this most mornings.
