2012 Jaguar XF: Electro Leaper

October 4, 2012


There's an option buried in the info screen menu that lets you change the screen to this.

No info, no maps, no buttons, just the "leaper" stretching across the screen.

Now, my immediate reaction was: Who would bother doing this? You can't change anything when the screen is just an icon. But then I left it that way and realized you can still do pretty much all the same stuff with the steering wheel controls and the hard buttons that still exist. And in the meantime, I didn't spend any time starting at the screen in the middle of the dash.

Maybe it's not such a bad idea after all.
