2013 F10 Nav Question

I would like to have the map always on the right side, and on the left side either entertainment details (when I don't use the navigation) or arrow display (when I use the navigation). That is the setting I had in my 2006 330i as it allowed me to always have the same info (map) on the right side.

However, it seems the Nav on my 550i does not provide an option of arrow display on the left side of the screen. Is that correct?

If that is true, I would need to switch the right side between map and arrow depending on whether I use navigation, which is annoying. Ideally BMW would revert the right side arrow display to right side map display when navigation is not used, instead of switching to he position info which I don't think anyone uses.

Essentially, I don't want to manually have to switch the right side, and instead have a setting that gives me the right info whether I am using Nav or not.

You can have map on right or left. Arrow on right only. If you have HUD then you can get arrows directly on your windshield.

Ok thanks that confirms it. I like the arrows on the HUD but my passenger is used to seeing arrows as well. Anyways, thanks for confirming.
