Hi all,

I have a 2017 registered i3 which came with the little screen. Purchased what I assumed to be the correct 10.25 screen from China and installed it. Used the accepted coding options and can only get this:

Vehicle Automotive design Automotive mirror Motor vehicle Steering part


i.e. it only displays on part of the screen and cuts the text to the right side off. tried various other codings and the result is the same.

So I put the coding to what is the normal accepted settings and proceeded to install a CarPlay box. Set that via dip switches to large screen and it works correctly filling the whole screen. Go back to iDrive and back to the part screen.

Now it is entirely possible I have purchased the wrong screen but I am at a loss to explain the behaviour and wondered if anyone could give me a clue.

LoFi

What were the accepted coding options that you used?

Based on the fact the screen does operate with the CarPlay unit properly, it sounds like you need to focus on the coding.

I’ve had to use the following lines to get it working… it’s worth a shot

DISPLAY_SIZE_RESOLUTION
DISPLAY_VARIANTE
CID_DISPLAY_RES
CID_DISPLAY_SIZE
