Nav Info in digital cockpit (UK)?

On the BMW website, it states that the digital cockpit shows nav info - on my test drive, I didn't see any nav info there when I set a destination, only in the HUD. BUT I had it sport mode the whole time.

Can anyone confirm if indeed you do get nav info in the LCD dash? My F10 does so would seem odd if the G30 didn't. Thanks

If you go in the HUD settings in the iDrive you can customize it. You will have to choose between if you like to see the info on HUD or instrument cluster, can't have both ( at least for now ). Or if you turn the HUD off then it will show in the instrument cluster.

On a slightly different note, I do not have the HUD but up until recently I have been getting the Nav directions on the digital cockpit as per normal, but this has now stopped. For some reason I no longer get the directions repeated on the cockpit. The only thing I think I changed was that I turned off the voice instructions. I've turned voice instructions back on but the cockpit directions still didn't work.

I did have split screen mode on, but I'm sure I have had split screen mode on and the cockpit Nav instructions working together previously?

I can't find any settings in the Nav, vehicle or iDrive menus which suggests you can enable or disable Nav directions in the cockpit, so does anyone know why the those instructions may have ceased?

Well, an outing today seems to have restored things back to normal and the cockpit displays Nav directions again. Not entirely sure what caused it to stop displaying that info, although I've half an idea my son, who had been sitting in the front, may have inadvertently (and temporarily) turned it off when searching for something else on the iDrive. Not sure how, but it's working again!
