The climate system already has real buttons though. No need to tap the screen to adjust the climate.Touchpad as concept is superior to touchscreen, I can vouch my house
Problem is their inferior development and implementation because they/Toyota struggle in UI department which is obvious even in this newest implementation of touchscreen. Pay close attention how wrong it is to have split screen option on the right side like climate control shown in the video. Unless system can recognize if the passenger is tapping on the screen which I highly doubt, there is absolutely zero sense to have the split screen which you interact with on demand to show up on the right side of the screen instead of the left. Map is really not that important so it should move to the right side of the screen while climate control should be on the left for easy reach. They are making some basic mistakes that tell me it's a rush job.
Unfortunately you do if you want to adjust seat heating/ventilation. Whole splits screen thing is unnecessary cause it doesn't add anything really. Most used purpose of split screen is to fiddle with music and Lexus did acknowledge that by introducing physical buttons for media control on LC and UX right next to touchpad as it should be. For some reason they still want you to raise and stretch your land in new LS to do these things.The climate system already has real buttons though. No need to tap the screen to adjust the climate.
It's underdeveloped, system lacks any notion that car is on the running on the road and doesn't include body rock and shake to adjust the touchpad sensitivity so margin of error escalates compared to when car is stationary. Touchpad shape and display shape have conflicting ratios, touchpad width is too narrow compared to the width of the screen so your brain instinctively tells you that you have more room to travel with your finger than you actually do. In reality maneuvering between interaction areas is super tight, which again is great when vehicle is stationary but bad when vehicle is moving.Touchpad's superior in a stationary environment. It's not so great in a moving car.
