DAB - not displaying station information

Post by flow » Mon Jul 09, 2018 8:39 am

Hello all

Just taken delivery of a new F45 Active Tourer, LCI version.

My previous Active tourer always displayed the DAB station information, e.g. Song & Artist, programme name etc. All I'm getting now is just the station name & a bland grey logo. It can't be signal related as like I said, it was fine on my last one. The only difference is I've gone from the basic Nav to the larger Nav plus.

Any thoughts? I can't see any options to do a re-scan or reboot the idrive.

Thanks Mike. That's something I tried but didn't get any joy. Car has been into BMW for various things & seems it's a glitch affecting most of the new F45 LCI models. 'Patiently' waiting for the outcome of the Puma case that's been created.

Mine used to display the information but then it went in for a service and an update then suddenly it’s gone! The odd thing is, it displays song info on FM stations!

I get that too! Still no update from BMW on their 'Puma' case either :roll:
