The stand alone screen will be a feature of all new BMW models from now on.
It will just stand via the dash - The designers see it as having a flat screen TV in your car. At extra expense to BMW they have coated the screen with a glass that does not show up glare in strong sunlight.
See, we customers must be wrong to think of it as looking stupid. It's a "flat screen TV" in our cars!
