Does anyone know why this Advance car eye 2.0 cannot be installed with a climate comfort windscreen option already in the car. BMW parts advisors just say it is prohibited.
To my knowedge, the screen has no electrical elements and I can only assume it is to do with adhering something to the glass, possibly affecting a laminate or coating?
If that is the case then no web cam could be used

Amazingly quick response from BMW.
Apparently the issue is that the camera will not function in park mode when the climate comfort screen option is installed in the car. However, it is supposed to function normally in driving mode.

Sounds like a load of BS. Any decent dash cam will just monitor and work of a "always on" and "ignition on" fuse, so it knows when to switch modes.

BMW needs to stick to making cars.

The spec. claims that in parking mode, the camera uses radar to detect movement nearby.
I wonder if the other windscreen treatment interferes with the parking mode radar function?

What is the climate comfort windscreen option? Is this a UK thing?
