2012 Toyota Camry: The Good and the Bad of Audio Controls

OK, so Brent Romans already covered the insensitivity of our 2012 Toyota Camry's touchscreen, but I wanted to add that I also dislike how tiny the "buttons" on the screen are as well as how the scrolling button doesn't make it obvious when you're changing the station. The small "click" you feel when you turn the knob to advance to another station is soo subtle that you can easily click over two Sirius stations. And when driving in stop-and-go traffic, you definitely do not want to take your eyes off Brakey McBrakerton in front of you (I'm talking to you. Mr. RAV4).

Fortunately, the Camry's steering wheel is equipped with an "excellent preset design" as Riswick noted so you really don't have to sit through that really annoying commercial and/or The Offspring song if you don't want to.

Only thing is having to share the Camry with a bunch of other people means that these are not your presets. But obviously actual owners of the Camry won't have this same issue.
