NO, it needs to be the same as it was. Mini map was a thing for over 10 years and no one complained, the game has some glaring bugs to this day, but they decide to mess with something that was never broken, was never arcady. This makes absolutely no sense.

It is semi arcady as a commander in a vehicle is the only one who would have accesses to the FBCB2 or equivalent.

I think all the vehicles have a minimap though atleast from 1.5 IDK what happened in 1.6 but I'm pretty sure I've been seeing my minimap in vehicles all the time. (Maybe besides trucks and jeeps) With the exception of world war 2 vehicles, would you even expect a minimap in world war 2?

The change isn't that drastic, you just need to take a second to look at the map instead of having the mini map, though you have to stop your vehicle to look or drive blind.

I don't feel it improved anything, just made the process more choppy.

Would it be possible to have the minimap only for the driver and not the gunner? That way it would keep the requirement for the gunner to triple check the targets while also adding the extra need for communication between the two crewmembers with the reduced risk of assets running into friendly mines or ramming friendly vics that may come around the corner.

That's a good idea, since the driver is also the commander in PR's way of armored vehicles, it would make sense for him to have some sort of "navigation" easily accessible

Yes, please add minimap just for driver. It increases communication between driver-gunner and prevents friendly mine incidences
