And coming from a car that used a touch-based Nav, I can honestly say it's a step in the wrong direction. You take you eyes off the road far too often trying to "aim" for a part of the screen. The iDrive controller is much more exact, and safer.
+1 iDrive is better. Even then you have to be careful. The preset buttons are awesome in that regard, as well as the voice commands. Almost bought a Volvo once but my wife steered me to look at BMW. After that I never looked back.
