Heads Up Display Question

My car is in the shop for service and they gave me a 2013 328i loaner. Funny thing about this car - it is all basic but has a heads up display! The HUD shows much more data than mine - for instance, callers pop up as do music tracks. I don't get any of this on my HUD.

I'm sure it's a format/settings/coding issue but can anyone clarify? What do I need to do to get these additional data on my HUD??

Settings/Headup Display/Display Information. - then check the boxes for the info you want to display

Don't think so - on the 2012's...the only way to get that info is to have it coded...

The same is apparently true on the 2013's. Funny though, I was driving along the other day with the sun behind me shining directly on the instrument panel. I could see the outline of what appears to be several other bits of data display that doesn't actually show up unless it's coded properly, which mine isn't.

Love the HUD, just hate the fact that you can't see it with polarized sunglasses. I have to tilt my head to change the polarization.

I coded my 2012 for telephone and entertainment in the HUD, it is the way it should have come! However my car which had a 12/2011 build date was not at the proper integration level to even have that as a code-able option. I had to beg my SA to upgrade the software on my car to the newest level, something they really aren't supposed to do unless there is an actual issue. Anyway i kept on him and even offered to bribe him. Finally he gave in and did it, without any extra compensation. Well they did charge me for an hour of service for it.

Anyway the down side is it erased all my previous coding and my Dinan software. Not really a big deal to re-code if you have already done it once, but it was annoying to not have my car for an additional day when I had to drop it off to be re-Dinan'd.

The 2014 year model F10 has the Entertainment and Phone data in the HUD by default. It started with the F30 for 2013 which also has the Power and Torque charts (Sport Display) by default. But neither has the turn signals in the HUD.

@subarashi: we can arrange to code what's "missing" in your F10.

Heads Up Display Question

Thanks everyone.....

@Octo - have not forgotten my friend. My challenge is the hardware - I do not own or have a PC I can use for the remote in. I've gone all Mac (rogue), love it but don't know how to work around that limitation.

I do so want to do it - have a list of stuff I want addressed.

I'm going to try to borrow a laptop to get it done. I'll PM when ready.
