2013 Lexus GS 350: The Planchette

October 23, 2012

Mark Takahashi gave an excellent rundown on how the Lexus Remote Touch stacks up against other multimedia interfaces. For me, the system's controller was a little jumpy at first and took some getting used to. Now I like it well enough (though I think that BMW iDrive is a better overall navigator).

The first few times out, the Remote Touch's pad felt skittery and slightly out of my control -- a little like a Ouija board planchette. I half expected it to start spelling out messages from the Beyond.

Now that I've got a better feel for it, that hasn't happened.  But Halloween is coming.
