    Just wondering if I should have the SC look at this

    Seems like I'm rebooting the screen once or twice a week. The other day I had an odd need to reboot. My wife's phone was the paired phone. While driving my wife took and then transferred to her phone. After that the audio volume for all radio/streaming/USB was locked on a very low setting. Couldn't adjust, couldn't mute either on screen or scroll wheel. A reboot fixed it. But just seems like screen is locking pretty frequently

    A couple of possibilities...

    You could be doing something different than other users. If you can track down something specific you are doing that causes the console software problems, it could be a bug in the software.

    At the last software update, perhaps the update wasn't completely successful, perhaps not all of the software updated properly - and doing a new update might fix the problem.

    Or, you could be having a problem in your specific car.

    With my late 2012 S P85, I've gone through periods when the software has required periodic reboots. That hasn't been a problem with the releases this year though.

    It will help the Service Center if you can reproduce the problem. While they can look at logs for your car, the type of problem you are seeing may not be viewable in the logs (except for noting when you are rebooting the console processor).
