    I really hate large touchscreen trend in cars. All that blinding backlight

    just give me real knobs and small screen with idrive style knobs for maps.
    I dont wanna go through ten menu options to turn on my hazard lights.

    also, if texting while driving is illegal & dangerous why is it okay to touchscreen your cars features?

    I agree. I prefer small individual hard buttons as oppose to a large screen like in a Tesla - nothing is more thoughtless than a large screen. But its just a trend.

    For the head units in the Dad’s Caravan, my 200, and my Sister’s Challenger, I’ll dim the dash lights and head units as much as possible when driving at night, makes a HUGE difference for me.

    100% agree OP. Its gonna be hard to move on from my truck. I can adjust all my stuff without taking my eyes off the road since there are buttons and knobs to handle everything.

    Nah, I love it. 8 inch touch screen on my new impreza, it's automatic but there's a knob to turn the brightness down at night.

    I got tired of having a poverty interior. Some new cars even have 11-12 inch touch screens, makes my tiny chode hard

    interior has nothing to do with ugly laggy screens in the middle of the cars dashboard.

    it doesn't bother me but i maybe use 20% of its features at most while driving tbh. i just don't need another screen to play with in my life. enough of that going on. if they pulled them it wouldn't detract me from buying a car.

    I think the large screens are very distracting. As if folks need another reason to be distracted on the roads these days

    I don’t find them distracting, and I much prefer them to most everyone else on the road looking down at their phones while driving. If that screen is distracting, then I guarantee you’re also one of the folks who is constantly playing with their phone while driving. As long as they have CarPlay / Android Auto, at least you can somewhat still have your eyes still looking at the road.

    I do agree that the ones that totally eliminate the volume / HVAC / etc buttons are not ideal. But I honestly just use my steering wheel controls for volume and track selection 90% of the time.

    I currently still waiting for the 10.1” Pioneer WT8600NEX to finally release, since head unit on my 18 Tundra Platinum is total garbage (along with the rest of the supposed premium JBL system) and it is the last piece I haven’t replaced. I built in a wireless center console charging station, so it will be really nice to also have wireless CarPlay at the same time.

    This. While I agree it can be distracting and too cumbersome while driving to look at and navigate the screen...back up camera is a game changer for parallel parking.

    Also - big fan of the 'smart' car interfaces like apple CarPlay in my Jeep. Yes you still have to look/use the screen but it's very clean and familiar. It's like a big dumbed down version of your phone. Easy for navigation/music etc.

    And when car camping I can watch a DVD on it. Only real con is lack of tactile controls so you can't do everything by feel like with the old radios.

    I prefer buttons over stupid touch screen crap buried in a menu somewhere. You need to be able to use the controls by feel without having to take your eyes off the road. A screen is fine but that doesnt mean you can get rid of all the nobs and buttons, that is just laziness and cheapness from the auto manufacturers.

    I also hate the stupid e parking brakes. I like the old levers, I can see out of my peripheral vision if the parking brake is activated or not. I dont have to fuk around with the stupid button and look at the dash light and all that nonsense.

    it looks cool and futuristic but its an absolute pain in the ass at times, especially with getting smears and etc. My car has all touchscreen display for stupid **** like adjusting the vents! You don't manually adjust it at the vent and they close when the car is off, just so much **** that looks cool for like a video demonstration/trailer but actually being function is aggravating.

    Same. I LOVE tech.

    That's why i like getting new chit. Whether it's cell phones, computers, cars etc. I like new technology.

    The tech in my car, even though it's "fairly" new, already looks outdated and i can't wait to try out all the tech goodies in my next toy. I love playing with the features. It shows that you are in something that's innovative.

    Why would i wanna be stuck in the past?

    If that's the case i'd get a early 80s car with AM/FM radio, roll up windows and a 4 speed manual and a top speed of 95MPH.

    Phuck that. I love all the new chit that's coming out.
    Schooling everyone that has to do with automotive one brah at a time. It's tiring but someone gotta do it lol


    I have a manual car but auto IS WAY BETTER THESE DAYS. ACCEPT THE FACTS BRAHS! LOL
