2013 Scion FR-S: Turns Me On/Off

September 3, 2012

So this is confusing. Toyota partner Pioneer is responsible for the FR-S's base audio head unit and was tasked with the responsibility of jamming a lot of functionality (phone pairing, etc) into a few buttons and knobs. The result is that the head unit's one large knob has been relieved of on/off duty for the audio system. And despite the semi-obvious (but tiny) power button to its left, I still try to power the system on and off by pushing the knob.

Why? Because that's how nearly every OE audio system on the planet works. It's an intuitive industry standard which shouldn't be trifled with. Come on, guys.

Fortunately, this is probably the only thing I don't like about this car.
