I don't know whether this is something to do with the piece of update that you mentioned it earlier; mine car is certainly after the Oct 05 production.
I've never had that problem.

I'm assuming by 'second binocular, you mean the idrive screen?

You could try carrying out an idrive software reset- hold down both the cd & dvd eject buttons & the radio power button all at the same time. Do this after turning the car on, then turn it off for a few minutes & then turn it back on agan.
Idrive should then reset.

This is a temporary measure, however.

If you carry on having the same problem, let the dealer sort it out.
They will need to identify the software (progman) version your car has installed before updating or re-installing it.

All the best Beefy.
