Avic Z2 In My 540i How Do I Reset Computer

I just installed a Z2 with Ipod, Bluetooth in my 2000 540i. A question for any techy out there.
My trip computers are all working but I cannot reset them any more. I had a 2000 528i and I installed a N2 in that car and I was able to reset the computer from my turn signal (BC button) but I cannot do it with the 540. I could not reset it in the 540 even when I had the factory stereo from the turn signal. Anyway I can reset this from the turn signal?? I don't know if the installer for the 528 was more knowledgeable than the 540 installer?

Yah man, I always dig seeing pics of double din installs in our E39's. Very few have pulled it off tastefully IMHO.
