OK, this happened to me once, and ONLY ONCE.

I was driving at around 70kph, and the Instrument cluster blacked out, and a "limited driver assist warning" came up on the centre screen. The cluster came back after around 15-20 seconds; after what looked like a reboot of that ECU, but during that time I was driving blind, it was bloody scary. I dont remember if the HUD blanked out too, I was too focused on the Instrument cluster (WTF moment !!!!!) and praying it would come back soon...which it fortunately did.

That happened to me only once, when the car was on S/W 07/2019.47. My vehicle build is a January 2019.

I have since been upgraded to 11/2019.34, and nothing like that has happened (..yet), and it seems this new software release is stable, but I've only been on it for 1 week (7 days).

What you have is a critical fault and a critical safety issue. I wouldn't drive it, don't do it its not worth it.

Does your HUD still work?

Call the dealer, as him to get it towed back to the dealership.
