Most display interface designers still didn't got the idea that this is not a tablet that one is browsing while lying in bed: a car screen interface should have few large and spaced buttons and a very straight forward operation. I feel these displays with absence of physical knobs for radio and climate control are mostly meant for voice control. Same goes for any other similar car (Tesla 3 stands out with tiny hard to reach screen buttons)
Kind of like the Polstar 2 with four quadrants? June

The Navigation is horrible and cannot find many things, even with the most current updates. My wife has to resort to her iPhone many times.
Suggest to her she use CarPlay. Apple Maps, Google Maps and Waze all work beautifully, and beat the snot out of every native navigation I've ever seen.
Help keep MVS on the web -> click sponsors' links here on MVS when you buy from them.
Also -> Amazon link
. Click that when you go to buy something on Amazon and MVS gets a kickback.

2006 XC90 130,000 miles, mechanically solid, 1 wheel bearing and normal maintenance. soft trim items showing more wear than I would like, but I will continue to drive it, no plans to replace it.
