MY2020 X3 Driving Assistant Plus Lane Keep Assist attention monitoring feature

Till MY2019, the DA+ LKA feature of X3 require frequent physical contact with the steering wheel to prevent LKA from disengaging. Whereas X5 have had a camera based system for monitoring driver attention instead (so holding the wheel not strictly necessary).

Since MY2020 X3 now has a fully digital dash with live cockpit professional, is the LKA feature now same as X5, or continuous to be X3-like from before?

Anyone with DA+ included on their 2020 X3 who can post pictures of the dash?

I have.. is pictured on website. No cameras in dash.

Personally, I don't really care. Steering wheel uses capacitance sensors so you just need to have a hand someplace on it. Tesla requires resistance.. and little wheel tweaks to stay engaged.. it really sucks.

I have been driving almost a week now. I think the DA+ with iDrive 7 might be slightly better than in 2018 & 2019 X3s - seem to be better at corners and keeping lane in general.

Seems to be anywhere on the wheel.

I haven't been very scientific, touching 1 finger all places and recording, but I have put my hands various places along the wheel without any issues.

2020 X3 M40i still relies on touch detection sensor in the steering wheel for hands on feedback.
