The "+1qt" reading is pretty misleading. If I had added an actual quart, I think I would have overfilled the engine with oil.
As others have said, the process is quite annoying. A dip stick is clearly an easier approach. However, since there are 2 reservoirs, it may not be a viable option. Unless you have 2 dip sticks of course...
Did you do a "reset" on the oil level by holding in the stalk for a few seconds after you first changed it?
