I actually prefer the large image in the middle as it has very useful information. It even shows the problem that my rear sunroof has. I've contacted the developer of the app about the distorted text. It's obviously a software issue that can be fixed with an update. He has a facebook group that's very active.

Ok, it's now looking perfect after changing the font setting for small text (from the default medium to small) . I went through the entire app and it's full of features, wow! You definitely want the large vehicle image in the middle of the screen. It's much, much better and usable compared to that tiny image at the bottom of the screen, clearly showing all the lights that are active, open doors, windows, and sunroof. It even indicates my second moonroof is open that I'd manually closed! It looks awesome! Remember to restart the unit for all the changes to take effect.

Here's how to change the car and font settings:

Large car image in the middle of the screen:
1) Settings->General (General app settings that change the entire app)->On-Board Computer (select OBC layout)-> on-board computer-> BC High Wide

To reduce the fonts from the default medium size to small size:
1) Settings->General->On-board computer (select OBC layout)->Font Size small (This adjusts the font size of all text elements in the unit's OBC screen.
2) Settings ->Font size small elements (this changes the font size of the clock, GPS location, music track info and the unit's CPU status shown in the bottom of the screen).
