Advice/ information needed
« on: February 12, 2018, 09:02:57 pm »
Hi everyone

I bought myself a 2005 BMW 1200GS 4 days ago. Would like to know if it is possible to update the software of the display to full functionality? Currently it only shows you the time, Total kms and trip1 and 2. Can you update it to show fuel consumption etc?

That would be a question for your local BMW dealer.  All you will get here is pure speculation.

There is no aftermarket device that can reconfigure the display like that anyway.  The GS911 can only change the consumption display from km/l to l/110km, Celsius to Fahrenheit etc, etc.

It was an optional extra when you bought the bike. I thought (secretly actually only hoped) that there would be a software update or something that would enable the functionality.
