Turn off the screen and reactivate it

When the centre display is switched off, the screen is dimmed so as not to be disruptive whilst driving. The climate row will still be visible, and apps and other functions connected to the screen will continue to run.
Give a long press on the physical home button below the screen.
The screen goes dark except for the climate row, which continues to be shown. All functions continue to run, such as climate control, audio, guiding* and apps. In this mode, the screen can be cleaned with the cloth supplied; see the section "Cleaning the centre display".
Reactivate the screen - briefly tap on the home button.
The view that was displayed before the screen was switched off will be shown again.
The screen cannot be deactivated when a prompt to perform an action is shown on the screen.
The centre display deactivates automatically when the engine is off and the driver's door is opened.
Switching off/changing the system sounds volume in the centre display.
The system sounds volume in the centre display can be adjusted or switched off:

Changing the appearance of the screen
Press Settings in the top view.
Then select theme, e.g. Minimalistic or Chrome Rings.
As a supplement to these appearances, it is possible to choose between Normal and Bright. With Normal, the screen background is dark and the text is light. This alternative is the default for all themes. A light variant can also be selected, in which the background is light and the text is dark. This alternative can be useful in e.g. strong daylight.
This alternative is always available for the user and is not affected by the surrounding lighting.
