    This one is driving mr crazy - How to you get the trip meters display on the dash. I can find the data on the touchscreen, but I cant get this display on the dashboard: image.jpg

    I only seem to get media or sunroof choices, or usually the energy graph.

    Press and hold the right scroll wheel for a moment and it will bring up a few options for what to show.

    Hold down the right center button and that will bring up the menu that lets you change what's displayed.

    I'll have to try again tomorrow, but I tried that multiple times and dont get the option. Do I need to turn on some option on the touchscreen?

    Nope. Give it a try again later.

    And as a further clarification, you can display it on either side by holding down the left or right scroll wheel until the option pops up.

    If I hold the left scroll it mutes the music; if I hold the right scroll, it opens a screen that allows you to select what the scroll button will do; however, it always defaults back to the view aforementioned at the beginning of this post. In either case, I can't seem to adjust what is displayed...is it a matter of holding it down for a longer period of time?

    Pressing the left scroll wheel mutes the sound. Holding it down for a period of time gives a selection. The right scroll wheel gives a selection when you press quickly, and a display choice when you hold it down longer.

    Found it. I kept looking under energy instead of trip.
