Think I figured it out, not sure of why. The wheel would work to clear low fuel or tire pressure.  So I figure the wheel itself is good. Took a chance, pulled the Nav V, cleaned contacts and be sure it fit good. All working, for now anyway.
Had a similar issue on our trip last week... It seemed the Nav 6 would change screens without any interaction from me. I monitored the problem during a couple days of our trip being careful to be sure I left the  wonder wheel control in TFT mode. The Nav still changed screens with no input from me... My normal procedure is remove the Nav after every ride to download tracks and reinstall every day before a ride. I wiped (cleaned) the contacts on the Nav as well as the mount and the issue seems to be gone.

Well that was short lived, I'll keep looking for a solution. Dang it. :745:

You didnít mention the Nav - probably would have helped get more useful answers to your original post. Was the wheel not working even when the Nav wasnít in the bike cradle?

Nope, doesn't matter afterall. Guess it was a fluke.  It's worked a couple of times but mostly nothing.

Well I went into the garage today to reset the clock... and the multi controller works holding left or right with both the TFT and the nav if connected, but will not scroll up and down in either the TFT or the nav, whether the nav is connected or not. Tried a squirt of electrical contact cleaner and left it, no change. Will try disconnecting and reconnecting left cluster switch tomorrow, and if that fails, disconnecting the battery. If that fails I guess it’s back to the dealer. Doubly annoying as I had a service recently and asked for a TFT update, but they resumed on the ground that the Bluetooth connection dropping out with my iPhobe was an Apple issue. We shall see...

The wheel interactions and over-all TFT usability are limited when the bike is in motion. I'd say a not entirely undeserved  RTFM is in order to avoid further confusion.  :153:

Bike is in shop for the coolant leak and they acknowledged the wheel is out too. Being replaced.

So removing and replacing left cluster switch and disconnecting battery had no effect. Bike is booked in next week for either a new wonder wheel, or if that doesnít fix it, a new left switch cluster, under warranty.

Wonder wheel wasnít functioning but remainder of cluster was fine. All replaced under warranty and latest TFT update applied as well.
