What goes in display below speedometer?

Does anyone know what might go in the digital display below the speedometer? I tried searching images, and most show a blank area for the F30, but some have some sort of miles to empty display.

Or is the speedometer and display used on other models and the F30 owners just get a blank display?

Correct. It's a mirage. Not sure why.

Thanks!!

The red rectangle makes it clear now. I guess I saw the dash display, which looks just like a F30 display, and thought that if it had the ability to display something, maybe we code something in there.

But I guess it just for use in other models. I just didn't like the unused blank area. It reminds me of those blanking plugs they put in place of unused switches in some cars. Cheap.

On my F30 and I found that when I'm just sitting in the car with just the accessories on my display down there will show all the information that would normally show in the heads up display (like l my media and contacts). Then when I turn the car on all that information switched to the heads up display and the display goes back to normal.

Unless you have a brand new F30 with a digital dash, this is impossible. There is no display under the speedometer if you have analog gauges. See Bimmerbingo's post above.
