What's your default iDrive screen?

When you're just cruising along, what's on your iDrive screen?

I have it split screen between Manual FM and NAV (most of the time).

Garage List
iPod/Entertainment screen with the playlist set to random and the selector left on the "next track" arrow so I just tap the controller to skip to the next track.

I had split screen for a while, but I found myself not really needing it. My fingers know the buttons, so it's pretty quick to pull up the map, home screen, etc. I've also memorized the number of clicks, so I can get to my usual places without having to even view the screen.

I just leave the cover art and track info displayed because I gotta use that big display for something

Now, that's impressive.

It may not be so applicable to you guys with all your long straight roads in the US, but I just leave mine on the map page - on our fast twisty Scottish country roads it's a useful tool to indicate the severity of bends in the road ahead.

Split, Map and Trip info

Map because it's a quick reference for traffic, curves, and "what's over there?"
Trip info because there's not much of anything else I need to look at while driving.

Day=full screen map at scale 1.0 to show surrounding traffic

Night=split screen night vision with smaller screen map at scale 1.0 to show traffic.
