Is Radio full screen with RDS possible?

I have split screen set for entertainment info and radio RDS set to on. If I am in Media mode listening to tracks on my iPhone, I can turn off split screen and have a full screen view of the playback info from the iPhone. I can't find a way to do this with Radio mode, though. I always have either the preset list, the available channel list, or the manual tuner dial showing on the main part of the screen. Is there any way to make Radio mode use the screen like Media mode does?

It's hard-coded to look that way. You can get rid of the split-screen, but the list of stations/presets is what you get.

Frankly speaking, the F30 LCD is seemingly pre-designed to always have the map up and the other bits of information displayed split-screen or not be displayed at all. Even the iPod screen has layers, doesn't look clean and it's the best of the bunch.

For me, the novelty of all that iPod cover art and stuff wore off after 2 weeks. I leave the map up, do the split screen occasionally to impress others, just use the HUD the rest of the time.
