    Nav VI screen options

    I see that on all BMW Motorrad marketing for the Nav VI they show the screen as below.

    Try as I might I can not replicate this (info boxes on bottom left and right of map screen with a black background). Am I missing something here???

    Is there something in the settings to select dashboards or is that only on older units?

    Yep.

    Looks like a Stunt Screen.

    We, mere mortals, will have to stick with the old style options.
    Carpe Diem!

    Why dont you contact customer services, and ask them how they achived that shot,

    if i's a simulated screen, there should be a disclaimer to say that

    otherwise it's making false claims as to what it can do

    Why don’t YOU contact BMW on behalf of the OP, along with questioning, outraged and distressed Nav VI owners (and the entire bikermate community, far and wide) and follow it up with letters to the advertising standards agency, your MP and that nice lady at no. 32.

    FFS wappers get off your pedestal for once !

    Its no different to software being advertised , which has the disclaimer "Not in game footage" for the very reason we are discussing here they got caught out, and had there knuckles rapped.

    how about you write a letter to said parties on behalf of etc.

    Now that would be a complete and utter surprise!
