Navigation Split Screen

Does anyone know how you can change the navigation screen to be full screen instead of the split screen (having the assistance screen) for the E70?

No way to do it. Kinda sucks, but that's how it was designed.

when I first got the car it was full screen unless I put the assistance window on, then I went in cause the car was having problems with the radio and they had to update the whole electrical system. Now it does seem like the assistance window has to be up all the time. Is this due to the new OS they put in for the E70s?

No, shouldn't be. What happens when you click on it (push down on iDrive)? Isn't there the option to remove it any more?

the assistance window is on all the time unless you turn it off which leaves a black space in its place. there is always a space designated for the assistance window. I want a full screen when the entertainment or other main windows are being used. I personally don't like the assistance window.

This is true. When I first got the car, I remember seeing the full screen then the salesperson changed it to show the assistance window. I never bothered to ask if I can change it back to a full screen since the assistance screen is very valuable to me.

My '08 X5 3.0Si allowed me to program it thru the iDrive by push the knob to the passenger side at the setup screen.

It let's you change the appearance of the assistance screen i.e turn it off, change the map options, etc., but can you actually make the main screen from the left be full view and not have the assistance window up at all.
