I put driving gloves and sunglasses in that storage compartment (where the screen would be) and use it all the time because it is so accessible. If I didn't have it, I would have to either put my glasses in the center console which is awkward based on that layout, exposed in the area just in front of the gear shift which is not good, or in the center "through-loading" shelves, which is awkward.

I have navigation in my Land Cruiser and never use it. I use the iphone when I need it. Dont miss not having it in the Z4 for the excellent points brought up above
