2009 Ford Flex: Touch Me

September 14, 2010

I love the touchscreen in the Flex. Touchscreens are the best kind of interface for the navigation in our long-term fleet, hands down.

Sure, the sun can blow out the screen. Yes, it can get all schmoozed up with finger grease or be crazy expensive to repair if it breaks. But compare this system to the silly one in the Volvo XC60, whose buttons are located behind the steering wheel, or the slow rotary-knob-controlled version in the Honda Crosstour and the Flex's ability for quick input stands out for its simplicity and ease of use.

At least that's my opinion. Do you have a better in-car system?
