Nav Issue (No Map View)

OK, I give up... searched all over the site and online and could not find any topic on what is happening to my Nav. The Nav was working perfectly fine until I had to go in and check why my telescopic steering wheel controls were not working.

Everyting works fine, radio, CD, cassette and even the Nav. But when I have it on the regular view that shows the station or track I am listening to there is no map view at all, as you can see on the first image. Then I go into the 'GPS Navigation" menu and select "Map"... lo and behold, the image appears, as in the second image, but no radio info.

When I select a new radio station, again no map image. So I am stuck having to keep on switching from radio and map view. I'm sure the Nav isn't fried or I wouldn't be able to listen to anything. Is there something I should check that will reset the Nav system? Am I missing something so simple like a loose connection? Or did the mechanic who checked my steering wheel mess something up?

Details:
2003 BMW X5 4.4
Born - 11/14/02
Stahlgrau Metallic
Sports Pkg.
M62/TU
Nav System (No DSP)

Been lurking around absorbing a lot of info but kind of new to the X, any help would be very much appreciated. By the way... a screen replacement is next on my to do list.

Try pressing the cassette button which is next to the mode button. Mine does what you describe in the top view by choice. But there are other choices available when that button is pushed. The X is in the shop right now so I can't experiment but I don't believe anything is wrong. it's the choice you've made with the combination of that button and the navigation choice you've made.

Thanks for your suggestion, I'll give it a try as soon as I get off work. As I mentioned, it could be something so simple. Thanks again.

That button is actually not a cassette button, rather it is the display change button - radio-nav/display toggle.

Yeah I know that but that was the easiest way to describe what the button looks like.

Thank you gentlemen for your input, much appreciated.

So just to make sure, if I am on radio/CD display there is no map view that goes in the black area of the screen? And you can only have the map view if you toggle to it using that button?

Depending on you OS you can also have split screen view,

Yup, I have the split screen view, thanks for your help Quick.

I guess I'm kind of bummed, thinking all the time that there was supposed to be a map display in the blank area of the screen when you are on radio or CD view, instead of nothing.
