How do I remove the small window on my screen? I want to have full view when I am not using navigation, I have no interest in seen my car info or data when I have radio/cd or phone on. How do I change it to full screen?

Thanks in advance!

The info window on the right side can't be removed to expand the main window.

+1 That is right!

You can turn it off however. Briefly do a right-shift with the iDrive; that takes you to the smaller right hand screen. Click down, brings up the menu. Scroll to Turn Off (or whatever it's called). Press down, and it goes away.

This only makes the small screen go away; as mentioned above, there is no full screen option.

Curious about the "full screen" thing... I just ordered a 2008 528xi a couple of days ago and one of the options I got was the Night Vision. The sales person showed me the Night Vision on another car--it too had the smaller info screen to the right by default. But he went into another menu, selected "Zoom" and it went full screen. Is that option (full screen) only for the Night Vision?

It would be cool if the new 2008 refresh models came with a fullscreen mode...That would be a nice surprise for everyone.
