Thanks, Jono  :)

 

It's not being German that worries me---I don't mind where cars are made as long as they are made well---no, it's the horribly complex and dangerously distracting, touch-screen activated controls which concern me!

 

How long does a driver have to look away from the road to make ordinary adjustments to, say, HVAC for instance?

 

We are not allowed to operate a mobile phone, yet we can spend infinite time making eyes-off-road adjustments to a computer and please don't tell me that it can all be done without looking!

 

It cannot.

 

Neither can it be safe, especially in a car capable of 155 mph.

 

I really want to know how this system can be given type approval in these 'nanny state' safety obsessed times...??
