Forty-six participants were recruited using an opportunistic sampling approach; there were six cases of simulator sickness (5 females and 1 male). For the 20 participants who completed the Android Auto trial, the average age was 45 years (range 20 to 77; sd=18); 15 were male and 5 were female. The 20 participants who completed Apple CarPlay trial had a mean age of 37 years (range 20 to 57; sd=9); 13 were male and 7 were female.
Participants completed a comprehensive familiarisation process. A standard familiarisation route was used, and participants drove it for at least five minutes, or until they were judged to be fully comfortable with the simulator and the driving task. This was to help participants to become comfortable with controlling the simulator vehicle and driving in the virtual environment. Following this, participants were made familiar with operating the infotainment system. Here, participants were given the opportunity to interact with either Apple CarPlay or Android Auto (depending on the device they would be using for the trial). Participants were shown how to use Spotify, BBC iPlayer Radio, Maps, text messaging, and calling features and were asked to try running all of these apps independently. Participants only undertook their first drive once they were confident with using the infotainment system. Participants proceeded to undertake another familiarisation drive that included a car following task (driving at a safe and constant distance behind a lead vehicle) and a driving through traffic task. During this drive, participants were asked to interact with the infotainment system to get familiar with using the system whilst driving.

Yeah for real. OP if you can't drive because your infotainment system is too complicated for you or slows you down pay a technician to yank it off your car. I myself don't slow down and am not distracted with my infotainment system. I don't take off my eyes off the road to push buttons, I have their location memorized.

I suppose it shouldn't surprise me these two posters are from the GTA. Classic egocentrism. We get that you may be able to drive with minimal impact, but the mass population is unlikely to. And guess what? Sometimes other users on the road matter more than yourself, and the most careful drivers get their lives destroyed by the recklessness or incompetence of others. We know that, generally speaking, everyone in a 60+ cohort is miserable with technology, this is no secret - how do you think they'd do with an infotainment system? My guess is not good.MusicBox wrote: ↑ Yeah for real. OP if you can't drive because your infotainment system is too complicated for you or slows you down pay a technician to yank it off your car.

Everything you mentioned can be controlled via voice command.sunnykw2305 wrote: ↑ Hopefully with more roll out and usage of Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, there would be less reliance on built in car infotainment functionality for people to remember.
Issue is car makers is trying to simplify manufacturing and install so they remove some direct access features. Seat heating which is used by Canadians often may require a few screen touches to set the right temperature when in the past it was a simple rocker Hi and Low switch. Lexus and Audi used to have a rolling dial for seat heating.
