Re: Please Stop

Absolutely this. My older American car has all of the tactile features; I can operate all of it without looking at the controls, from the stereo to the climate control to anything else. I rented an American car a couple of weeks ago, though, and so much of it was tied into the touchscreen control; it was to me impossible to try to operate the radio even while moving, if I wanted to be as certain as possible of not running into a pole or something like that. No tactile feedback on any of the controls and a LCD display that can be hard to read in certain angles of the sun... this is more advanced than my decades-old car where I could do it all by feel?
