While the technological humanoid has been around for decades now, with even cars now facing a revolution in the field, the biggest consumer complaint when talking about its own vehicle surrounds the infotainment system.
Even Consumer Reports, the highly independent and coveted magazine has highlighted the situation in its latest string of surveys, with the culture of engineering still unable to provide the consumer the easy to use systems the need and crave for. One specific complaint seen across the brands is that navigation systems don’t really work the way they’re advertised. And that’s a major concern, since every industry executive, analyst and auto expert is preaching the dawn of autonomous driving – which, incidentally relies on the computer brain to use… complicate and intricate navigation software and maps. Many experts contend that when it comes to driving, the Global Positioning System navigation systems have been one of the major achievements in human history when it comes to travelling via motor vehicles.
But there are some implications – if you use one and rely on it – first get to know your navigation system. Every brand and every producer has its quirks and secrets which could mean the difference from getting on time at your destination or get there slower, painfully and turning you into a nervous wreck. And by the way, humans have been travelling around the world for thousands of years using simple… logic. Greek mathematician Eratosthenes got the hang of the Earth’s circumference around 200 BCE and the magnetic compass has been around for a thousand years.
