I think that probably carvings is trying to download info, radio is probably off but not always.
The reboot happened to me for the first time in 2 1/2 yrs ownership. My experience is almost identical to yours. Rebooted shortly after pressing OK and BEFORE it 'downloaded info' as it does first thing in the morning. After a quick reboot (blue e) the 'downloading info' came up. I was listening to XM Radio at the time. I have no idea if I have received any Nav system updates or not. I'll ask for one at the 45,000 mile service in a few months.
As an aside the 'downloading info' message has always bugged me, during this process CarWings is receiving the latest drives from the vehicle, it uploads much more than it ever downloads. I suppose they don't want you to think big brother is watching by saying 'uploading info', which we all know he is.
