Date Display

Hey guys,

I was wondering if there's a way to display the date on the GPS screen or speedometer display in a 2011 x5d?

Thanks.

The little knob on the left hand stalk will switch your time/temp to date and vice/versa.

Is that what your looking for?

Glad I could help, I found it while reading the owner manual during the two weeks between order and delivery.

If I had to wait 2 weeks for mine, I'd probably have done the same thing!

This is cool feature.. I also found by accident after owning X5 for more than 9 months or so.. This helps me, during the Warning (Gas reserve etc), Console and Navigation screen does not show Time/Temp.. I need these for curiosity...

Console and navigation screen does show time but not temperature. To show time on the navigation screen, press down on the idrive when in map mode. It will switch on a little gre box with time, bluetooth phone signal bar, and if radio is in HD or not.
