Are the navigation displays in the 2019 i3 touchscreen? I’ve never seen an actual owner comment on touchscreen, it was just on a few websites when the new features were announced for 2019. Thanks for any info!
There is a touchpad on the top of the iDrive controller that will let you enter things like a phone number or address. Greasy fingerprints on the screen are a distraction, and the iDrive controller is located easier to access, IMHO. Maybe on other vehicles with different arrangements.
Thanks everyone! Looking forward to getting our 2019, understand now that given the distance of the display from the driver, touchscreen may not have been a good fit for the i3 (and also those smudges!).
As a consolation, the touchpad on the larger iDrive controller (the one with Navigation Professional) supports multi-touch gestures, but only within the interactive map view. So you can zoom out by pinching two fingers together or pan around by flicking, etc.
I think you'll really like the iDrive 6.0 UI/UX in your 2019.
