My car is similar to yours in age and spec and I rarely if ever use the TV.

enjoy driving

I drive mine quite often (racked up 2500 miles in 4 weeks) dont really use the freeview tv tuner as you have to be stationary (i understand from safety point of view) but annoying. Im going to purchase a video in motion adaptor so allows me to use BMW online and the TV while im driving. I have it installed on my Merc SL R230 and its not distracting at all.
