I can certainly see why it'd be more helpful if you weren't in the city. I live in a pretty metropolitan area, but have some dark and twisty roads to get to my home. It definitely is more useful there. However, because the image is on the iDrive screen and not, as you said, displayed in HUD, it's simply not convenient to REALLY watch. Having it displayed in HUD would make all the difference, I imagine.
