It is placed much higher than a normal nav screen, making it a lot easier for the driver to control, since you do not have to look down.
Also saw it at the NAIAS and it looks just fine. I actually first saw it at the Bimmerfest VDC Tour in November where they had an F30 mule. Initially it was roped off but later after the tour ended they took down the ropes and left the door open so I got a chance to see it up close and couldn't understand why everyone was hating it. If I was in the market for a new BMW I wouldn't not buy it just because of the screen.
