1 dial instrument layout or 2 dial?

The first week or so of ownership, I have had the main instrument cluster set to a traditional layout....2 dials and I have had media in the center between the 2 round dials.

The past day or so, I set the main instrument panel to 1 dial. Left info set to media, right set to just the I-Pace picture.

What do you all like or prefer? 1 dial layout more modern or 2 dial layout more traditional?

2 dials and navigation. Main screen: eco data and news. Bottom screen: Media

I mainly look at the HUD and one dial just to see the power consumption

I wish I had HUD. I had it in 3 BMWs and 2 Rolls, and I really loved it. When looking for an I-Pace, I did not find one car that had HUD. I think for a car as advanced as the I-Pace, it should just be standard!

In my view the 2 dials give no extra information over what you see with the 1 dial, they just take up more space that could be used for non-dial information.

My layout:
Instrument panel 1 dial with trip on left and map on right. Bottom screen media. Main screen varies by situation -- media if I want to know what artist I'm hearing, or CarPlay, or Eco data or cameras when needed.

I prefer 2-dial but how come this thread has no pictures?

[Oops I can't post one myself right now because my car is in the shop for fixing a rear-ender that happened in August]

I also go with 2 dials, and navigation in between.

I am curious to know what info you put in the bottom right corner . I only found recently that we can change it as well. I was stuck with the 3 set of green bar/score , which I don't find very useful. Now I have set the instant consumption, but I keep changing for average and instant consumption.

I set the bottom tight corner to consumption too.
I always switch it to Eco mode and always need to put it to consumption

Bottom screen for media?! You mean the climate screen? I have done what you have and liked it....1 dial, trip on left, map on right...but bottom screen for media, I am confused with.

Also, I found out you can set the map on the main instrument screen to dark or light. Huge difference!

Thanks.

The lighting control stalk on the left of the steering wheel has a button in the middle. Pressing it cycles the trip display on the bottom right of the instrument panel through Trip distance/Average speed/Average economy/Instantaneous economy/Energy regenerated/Driving style.
