1 - Color scheme - I think it's worse too. I liked the old map colors. The font is a little smaller, but still good IMO.
Interesting, since iDrive boots up a little faster, if the map was your last screen, you can see that iDrive first draws the old map color scheme and has units set to meters by default. Then the new color scheme is drawn on top of it, and my units switch to miles. Very odd.
2 - POI is way, way better now. Searching POI by name is a huge improvement.
3 - Yes, iDrive remembers where you were and goes back there. Much improved. Also, I appreciate not having to click "accept" each time I start the car.
4 - My FM radio does not have more static. It works fine.
5 - Nav is about the same speed as before, but map zooming in/out is slower. I noticed that, too.
