Multiple Trip Computers

     Featured on BIMMERPOST.com
While I wait for my new BMW, can someone explain the iDrive trip computers? My current car has two. Trip A will show average speed, average consumption, miles driven. It resets automatically after the car is off for two hours.

Trip B will never reset unless you do it manually and shows all of the same info.

So, for example, I will reset trip B every time I get gas. That way I can see average consumption for a particular journey/drive and average consumption over the course of the tank of gas.

I have done a lot of searching, but I can't seem to find any good info on this. The youtube iDrive videos don't seem to be very detailed on this issue, either.

Will do pretty much as you are used to.

Trip computer can be configured to automatically reset each trip, or left unchecked for accumulated trips.

OBC continuously calculates, unless you reset the mpg and/or mph.
