hmmm, very odd. I tried holding down the power (volume) button for upwards of 45-60 seconds while driving and idrive wouldn't reboot. As soon as I put the car into Park, it worked with a 30-35 second press. The car wasn't turned off between the failed rebooting while in motion and the successful reboot in park.

Hopefully I'm never going to try it out again.
