2013 Lexus GS 350: This Is Silly

October 30, 2012


I get that car manufacturers want their products to be special and different. But seriously, who sat in front of this system and said,  "Yes, this is the one we should go with."

Why make us toggle around with the square whatchamacallit? It's like a mouse that is set to move too fast. I always overjump the commands I want. I like that is has a large screen but the back and forth is frustrating.

I encourage you to make all of your selections while still parked because you shouldn't operate this system while driving or even waiting at a traffic light. It takes too much of your time and attention. It's as distracting as texting.

As long as a system has good sound and does useful things like keep you warm or cool and send you in the right direction when you're lost, that's all we need. This system could be so much easier to use.

Clear and simple is always best.
