Audi finally proves that two little screens in a car are better than one big screen

Quite a lot of time has been spending on the new car from Audi, the Q8. This car from Audi is equipped with the latest infotainment system from the company. The only thing that is a part of the story is a grimy screen. Cleaning the screen is easy, but the screen is prone to catching fingerprint and dust very easily. The car comes with two screens which are placed on the center console of the car. The top screen is responsible for controlling the radio along with the mapping system. The bottom screen is responsible for the climate control and vehicle cameras. Both the screens come with haptic feedback which makes them very responsive.

Both the screens in the car are tilted in the right angle so that it helps to provide a place to rest your wrist. All the major car companies are moving into touch screen infotainment system and are removing buttons from their console. This makes a lot of sense because screens are generally very cheap as compared to the physical buttons. With a touch screen, all car companies need to design is good software so that it can run the whole system, whereas, with the button, the company needs to build multiple buttons of different shapes and sizes.

Tesla was one of the car companies which took it to the next level with their Model S in the year 2012. The car company released a giant touch screen in the center console, which helps people to communicate with the entire car. Different car companies have tried adapting the touch screen infotainment system and come out with new systems on their own. Most of the car companies now are using a combination of touch screen and a couple of buttons to make it easier for the customer to control the whole system.

The bottom screen of the Audi Q8 is always displaying the screen of the users so that they can understand what are the settings which are turned on in the climate control. The interface also comes with a dark mode, which helps people drive at night without giving stress to the eye. The screens are made of good quality, but during day time, Glare becomes an issue. Apple CarPlay is still one of the reasons for frustration for the Audi Infotainment system.
