I guess you are paying for something that doesn't work, starting to sound like Honda......You know, if anyone is really interested in the new infotainment, all you have to do is scroll on over to the Highlander forum, and ask someone who has a 2023. Other than physical controls, they have the exact same infotaiment as the Venza, same as the previous gen.
Maybe more than that, on a road yesterday that is 30 years old and it shows me out in a field. I can't believe what I paid for that option that is garbage......Toyota has always been at least a generation behind the rest of the world. I'm sure with these improvements they feel they won't have to make any more changes for 10 years.
Looks fantastic, volume buttons as well. 👍
Thanks for posting the picture! Very helpful. I have the 2022 XLE with big screen, and the capacitive touch controls are not fun to use. I see that the whole capacitive touch array is now dedicated to the climate system, which is interesting. Where are the 'map', 'home', 'menu' buttons, and where is the audio 'skip/rewind' combo? If they are now forced onto the main touchscreen (MID), I'm not sure that's an improvement! If I'm driving along using carplay (or android auto), and want to skip to next track, do I have to switch from map display to audio control display, or similar?
Thanks for the tip on 'Sygic' - I'll try it out.I might be overdoing it but I use an additional phone mounted on windshield just running Waze, and the media screen running Google Maps or Sygic interchangeably. Waze saves me money not running automated speed cams which triggers at any speed above posted limit regardless if its 1 above. I like the Sygic's 3D view and that it allows for offline maps for some remote drives. This setup also allows me to use 360 cam on Auto for stop signs and intersections. Always best to know there's nothing or no one in front of the car before moving ahead.
