Click your controller to the right; you should now be active on the right screen. Press the controller down, and a list of options for the right screen should appear.

Twist the Idrive controller when you get to the second screen you showed.

I just picked up a 2014 550i this evening and having the same issue as the OP. In the second pic he posted, I too don't have a sub menu that will allow me to select trip info, vehicle info, etc. as pictured in the owner's manual.

Did anyone come across a way to change the right side of the split screen to something other than the map?

The posted picture is the result from pressing the Option button instead of the controller.

Press the controller once to the right. The split-screen map scale text will change from black on grey to red on black, confirming the selection focus is in the right-side pane. Press down on the controller to open the split-screen content menu. Make your selection, press to confirm, done.

You can also use voice command, e.g., "split screen trip computer" or simply "entertainment details" (which is only in the split pane, thus no need to say "split screen" first). Short commands for voice navigation are in the owner's manual.

Got it figured out, thanks again. I haven't even gotten through the manual yet but I will certainly read up about the voice commands!
