This is exactly correct. How many accidents do these in dash screens contribute to compared to older, knobbed, radios on which one can feel for the knobs and buttons for volume and stations without taking one's attention from the road?

See my car's mod & maintenance thread and my electric bicycle's thread for ongoing projects. I will rebuild Black and Green over decades as parts die, until it becomes a different car of roughly the same shape and color. My minimum fuel economy goal is 55 mpg while averaging posted speed limits. I generally top 60 mpg. See also my Honda manual transmission specs thread.
