Split Screen - latest i-Drive software on new M140i

Anybody have any ideas if I'm doing it wrong, or is this it now - the displays are a retrograde stepp IMHO from my 2015 M135i ..

Initially when pressing the OPTION button to bring up the screen with the Split indicator, it wouldnt set the thing to 'on' .... somehow, now its always on (wont click 'off') - but I still cant move over to the rhs of the screen to populate it with what I want .... (this is all in non-NAV mode incidentally)...

On the M135i I had OBC on the rhs and used the lhs for the other things I like to see - Trip/Journey Computer / Tyre Pressures or just settings that I wanted to check ..

The whole I-Drive set of screens have really changed since June 2015 !

Anybody else have a problem with it or a solution ?!

Cheers, ST

After much fiddling I can confirm that Split-Screen only works in the NAV screen-set and the 'Connected Drive' set .... NOT in the 'My Vehicle' set of screens ....

Bug or design - the Handbook makes no mention of it ..... ?
