The BMW Nav program is missing the logic to ensure the road identifier in on the screen when zoomed in. As noted, this wouldn't be a problem except that the logic then no longer shows the road (to avoid cluttering the screen with excessive detail) when you zoom-out to "give it enough room" to show the road name/number.
