2011 Infiniti M56: Control Logic

September 13, 2011

It's possible you've been following the ongoing debate here about shift logic. You know, which direction you should shove an automated manual gear lever to trigger an upshift or downshift. It's also possible you don't care.

I'm betting otherwise.

Here, for your perusal, is a control where Infiniti gets the logic right.

That knob, when using the nav system, controls the mapping zoom function. Turning it right (as the icon indicates) zooms in on the map. Turning it left zooms out. This, friends, is how it should be. Like driving a screw, turning the knob clockwise moves your perspective closer.

Unsurprisingly, not all manufacturers agree.
