Compass?

I just took delivery of my mineral space grey 535i with M Sport, Premium, Technology and more, and I noticed there isn't a compass in the rear-view mirror...am I missing something? Is it an option? I don't see how a 65k car would have the compass as an option, don't need it anyway, but I'm used to it being there in my F30.

Only compass is the one as part of navigation on the F10.

You can Code the compass to display on your dash and/or the iDrive screen. Looks like this:

Does it work for 2011 F10? I don't see this feature in cheat sheet.

This worked in my '14 NBT:

KOMBI => KOMPASS_GRAPH_ENABLE = aktiv - Enable Compass in Instrument Cluster above odometer.

I read somewhere, though I haven't tried it yet, the compass code is in CAF and not KOMBI.

I would assume you need a 6wa or 6wb cluster.
