2012 Ford Explorer Long Term Road Test

2012 Ford Explorer: Small Thing, But I Like It

June 21, 2012


This is my favorite MyFord Touch display in our long-term Ford Explorer's gauge pack. It's a 2D representation of the spherical compass my grandparents had on the dash of their last Taurus.

Not only does it look cool, it's functional for general navigating/knowing-where-you're-going purposes. And I like that it also tells you which street you're on and the posted speed limit -- useful when driving in areas with unfamiliar traffic patterns.
