Yes...the main display for the OBC for BMWs with the HIGH MID & HIGH CLUSTER is either the MID or the Nav screen.

The control of the OBC (like start/reset/set of the OBC features) is done with the buttons on the MID or the Nav screen.

But, you can still program ALL or just your select favorites of the OBC features to appear in the insturment cluster's 20 digit alpha/numeric display...and this is done by pressing inward on the turn indicator stalk until PROG 1 appears (then either press the SET button on the MID or Nav screen...and ALL the OBC features will appear...or press & hold the stalk until PROG1 appears, then begin to pick the OBC feature you want to appear by pressing the buttons on the MID or Nav screen...then when your done, press the SET button.

This will then allow you to press the BC button on the turn indicator stalk to call up the OBC features on the instrument cluster display (as long as there are no PRIORITY 1 Check Control warnings). The display on the HIGH cluster has first priority to the Check Control system...thus any Priority 1 or 2 warnings will wipe-out any OBC features if they occur because they have first priority of the display...where as the MID or Nav screen is the display for the OBC.
