2012 Honda CR-V: Icons, Redux
April 10, 2013
A couple of weeks ago, I mentioned that I liked how the Beetle mixes icons with text buttons in its center stack. But I'm not so sure how well icons explain the file structure in this example of the CR-V's media display.
For example, here I'm listening to a podcast of This American Life. The podcast titles are listed under a music note and the name of the podcast series listed in the CD-looking tab before. The guy standing in front of the microphone, that screen tells you the file is from Chicago Public Media, and the guitar icon, I think that leads you to the top of the podcast menu.
It's all needlessly dense and tells me nothing at a glance. But it looks cool, in an old Nintendo kind of way.
