he first tech-related bits you'll probably notice in the X5 are its screens. The standard 12.3-inch gauge display and 12.3-inch infotainment screen are both large and in charge.

BMW's iDrive 7.0 works well, with a home screen that displays most of the relevant information by default. Being able to jump between touching the screen and using the physical dial below is appreciated. That said, there are loads of menus and options on there, which can be daunting at first. Changing certain things, like the optional head-up display's brightness, requires diving through several menus, which can be awfully distracting. Apple CarPlay is included, but BMW charges a subscription for it, which is stupid. You get the first year free, at least.
