G30 (2017 - Current)
The next generation 5 Series, chassis code G30, arrives at dealers in February 2017. Looking like a scaled down 7 Series and riding on the CLAR platform, the new 5 Series will have a focus on lightweight and sporty performance. Engines options will come from BMW's new B family for the 530 and 540 and a turbocharged V8 for the M550i. Read more about the 2017 5 Series

Split Screen Content - Does not remember preference?

On my '19 530, I like to have split screen enabled on the iDrive screen with the weather displayed.

It seems that every time I get out of the car and come back in, split screen changes back to the Vehicle Information screen (i.e. shows mileage remaining and some eco pro information I think.)

In my F10, I was able to choose the split screen content and it would remember the setting until I changed it. Essentially, I set it to weather the day I bought it and it kept weather on the split screen until I turned it in.

Is this not a thing on the iDrive 6?

I have IDrive 6 and my display usually shows a split screen. I have never seen Eco pro stuff on it but, then again, I have never driven in Eco Pro.


When you start up, try pressing the options button on the IDrive controller and make sure you have selected split screen.

Yeah - the thing is, the split screen shows - but it seems to always return to "Vehicle Information" being displayed vs the weather as I choose practically every time I get in the car.

You could program one of your buttons to switch it on.

Do you need to lock the car with the fob to get the driver profile settings updated? I assume you are locking the car when you exit, seems strange the setting is not saved. Sounds like a software issue. Never had an issue with my '18 540i.

Ever since I had my iDrive updated to the latest version, i have had this same problem. To be clear, its only the split screen to the right that is not "saving" and defaulting back to something other than what you had on the screen. For instance, on the split screen to the right, i like to have the weather displayed. Everytime I start the car, I have to manually change the split screen to the weather. It used to save the weather and display it after each restart, but since the upgrade, it defaults to something other than the weather, in my case, the compass. I have thought about deleting my profile and starting over to see if profile is corrupted. I am just lazy and havent tried this yet.

Hummh. Mine defaults to location (street address, longitude, latitude, altitude). Lots of "tudes"

Mine does the same, ever since the dealer installed the latest iDrive software per SIB 12 24 18. I suspect a software bug in insufficiently tested code. iDrive display now lists Telephone software level at TB-006.074.002 and Media software at level MB-006.074.002 after installation.

I would pursue with dealer for a remedy but don't think this is a wise use of my time and vehicle.
