Lexus Remote Touch System Video

Automakers have continued to experiment with different methods of user interface for navigation systems. In this video, Cars.com senior editor Joe Wiesenfelder goes through a demonstration of one of those systems, Lexus’s Remote Touch, which allows drivers to operate the system with a joystick-like device. The new 2010 Lexus RX 350 is the first model equipped with the system. Weisenfelder explains why he prefers this system to others and what makes it a good way to interact with a navigation system.

i honestly think that is a horrible idea with the mouse to click the keyboard, i think many people are going to get into wrecks.

Joe nailed this topic. I originally thought the Lexus remote touch system was just another gimmick - that was until I tried it. My sister in law has the new RX and I got to play around with it a few weeks ago. The remote touch is the best I've seen to date. It's way, way better than the i Drive in my 5 series. I can only hope BMW ends up copying some of it's traits.
