530e Reprogrammed by BMW and lost eMileage meter!

Anyone else get the new software update on their 530e?
Just had it done last week and they took away the electric mileage meter on the center dash. That was the main screen I used.
This really annoys me since I would set battery control charge based on the estimated mileage on that meter.

Is it configurable within idrive?

If not then sounds like a functionality change there.

Which meter are you referring to? The battery remaining gauge? The mileage remaining under the battery remaining gauge? Something else?

Mine was reprogrammed last week as well, I still have it. I did have to fix things so I could use the BMW Connected app though. Was annoying but seems to be working now.

It was selectable with the tip of the signal stalk in the bottom center between the speedo and power rings. It showed how much electric range is left.

What did you have to do with the app? I think my app works ok.
It's strange you got to keep the electric range meter and it's gone for me.

I'll have to take a look. Didn't think of that since it was there before they programmed it.
