What is your primary infotainment screen?

For those who have the infotainment unit, I wonder what you keep on the screen most of the time while you drive. I've put the major options down. If you have something else up, what is it?

Blue Reflex sGT - Hankook Ventus S1 noble2 tires - JBR Filter - Chrome Grille/Hatch/Window Trim - Luxwood side moldings - Black Chrome Fog Lamp Trim - Front parking sensors - OEM Rear parking sensors - Homelink mirror - Splash guards - Rear bumper guard - Kagu/OEM mats - Hardwired radar detector - Auxiliary power outlet - Curt Trailer hitch/custom wiring - 2.5L/GT badging - Soft cargo liner - Husky trunk liner - Alloy pedals - Kuda phone holder - Infinity/Polk/DSP Audio - Thule Cargo Box

In the car I mostly listen to audiobooks using an MP3 player and the AUX input. Since the AUX input does not provide any information on the screen, I usually show the NAV (but with no destination, so it doesn't mess with the speakers).

Annoyances (I am on V27):

1. I have to suppress the NAV menu bar every time I start the car. System should remember this setting.

2. I would often select a destination, but do not like the lack of total muting (even on V31 this does not seem completely solved, it seems).

I play music through a usb stick, and I generally leave it on the audio tab so I can see what the name of each song playing is. Sometimes I leave it on the nav screen though because 1) it's my first car with navigation 2) occasionally I really do need to know what streets are coming up/where I'm at.

Ever since I updated mine to ver 31, it boots up direct to the music screen. I would prefer it boot to the main menu.

I usually turn the screen off unless I am using Nav or if I have a passenger in the car. I do wish that when you change radio stations, the station will appear at the top no matter what screen is on or off. It does this with Nav/Street names, it should do this for radio too.

I don't have a device connected to the USB. It always boots up to the last music station I had on. I believe my situation is unique, but I'm not going to take it to the dealer over it.
