X3 G01 Missing Digital Speedometer after dealer software update

Thu Mar 28, 2019 9:45 am

After my main dealer reinstalled software late last year I found that the small digital speedo where the Cruise Control dial is located had disappeared.
Appears that BMW have removed it on their latest software. Anybody else seen this issue.

Our new 2019 has it. I assume it has the latest software on.

Hi Thanks for the reply. Can I confirm you have the thumb nail size digital speedo display in the main speedo display at about 4 o’clock near where the green Cruise control display shows when it is set?

Just been advised by my dealer that BMW are to release new software which will reinstate my missing digital speedometer. Good news.

Ok so software update arrived and installed. The digital speedometer has reappeared, now between the two larger dials.
Unfortunately if the engine is turned off for a few minutes the units displayed revert to Kilometers per hour not MPH. Reset to MPH in IDrive, fine until you leave the car when it reverts to Kph.
Dealer updated on a car they have, same problem.
Awaiting BMW to provide a fix.
