In fact I think entering data is quicker than turning the MMI **** to get to the letters you want. For all the things I want immediatley that used to be physical buttons (eg Heated Rear Window, Recirculation, Heated Seats) they are there in a fixed location and no harder to find than before.
In the US model, while you can’t use the “Enter Address” function while driving, you can use the Smart Search while driving, which allows writing and using the keyboard on the lower screen. I actually like the Smart Search better as it finds a lot of destinations quickly, but you can also write in an address. Don’t recommend using this while driving, but technically you can.
