In my experience, the higher the OEM Nav screen is on the dash the better -and safer- to look while driving. And much better still is when the Nav is not touchscreen. And best is when the controls are naturally closer to your hand so you do not have to be looking to the dash buttons to be pressed/turned.

The iDrive screen position and controler is the best interface to me right now. The HUD in the F30, F10 and F01 just makes it the best, IMO. I always liked the VW MFD since 2007, where it shows current street and arrow view in the instrument cluster while the OEM Nav screen is showing full map view, always standard with Nav and now in full color. But HUD is better just because it is higher in the dash -again- and right there with the natural eye level view.

No need to lower your view to look at the instrument cluster.
