2013 535 xDrive - Rear/side camera question

Hello -

First time BMW owner - and brand new to the Forum.

I have had the car for about a month - and am trying like heck to get used to the various technology available to me. Now to my question...Just noticed today that I am 'not' seeing the rear view camera view when I go into reverse. When I first put into reverse - I get the bird's eye full 360 view...when I click the 'camera' button on the center console, it switches to the side (front wheel well) camera view. How do I get the normal rear view camera view back again? I am certain that I have the buttons pressed in some odd configuration. Any help from you experts would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance.

Just push down on the iDrive knob and it will switch back to the rear view camera. You will notice a red check mark on "R" camera on the display

Every push on the iDrive knob changes the view from surround view cameras to rear view camera only and vice versa.
