By unchecking Nav in the display info page it no longer defaults to this blank display. I dont use my nav that often, but when I do I'll have to recheck it. This should not happen but you never know. Maybe the same German who decided that runflats are a panacea also decided that we have to have that display up first every fookin time....
It's preferable to what I personally had before.....the Nav display on the small screen would never leave. I woudl press the button to go away and it would come back 10 seconds later. Over and over and over again.

Now at least the Nav display goes away when I press the button, comes back when it's needed and goes away again until the next turn.
