    Re: Why a pop-up nav screen?

    I like the idea of adding life and drama to the driving experience. Everyone who gets in my car loves the pop-up screen but the voice system is horrible. I don't like the way you search for destinations either. My 2008 and 2009 Nissan Maxima's had the best nav interface of all the cars I have owned. I also owned a 2008 and 2010 Jeep Cherokee SRT8.

    Overall I like the idea of the pop-up screen just fix the glitches. If the screen needs to be up to do what I want to do put it up dont make me push the button, voice prompts need to be better, and I should be able to just say a destination and it should figure it out.

    Re: Why a pop-up nav screen?

    It's annoying. The user-interface for electronics was not a strong point in my '06V, and it's not much better in my '12. I'd rather keep the screen down, but some features are only available via touchscreen. Even worse, some features that can be accessed from the controls on the dash only work when the screen is up. (like selecting an artist for some music.) We build a lot of interfaces for users where I work... had this project been dropped in our lap, the approach would probably have been to build a UI interface. Then design a touch-screen UI that can do EVERYTHING. And then design dash controls that are ALSO capable of EVERYTHING. That way, the user can decide what is most convenient.

    Yeah, it doesn't interfere with the view. In my car the top edge of the screen doesn't raise above the backward edge of the dash. What are you guys talking about? Maybe your seats are way too low. We are talking about a high performance car, not a Buick or a Toyota, after all.

    I wouldn't mind getting rid of the analog clock and the 2 nobs next to it in the V, but that was all done originally because it shares the platform with the standard CTS where the nav is optional (and even the 2009 v's)

    Having the screen down, where it belongs, and just the mini-window showing is a perfect solution.
    I agree with cdog......my screen stays down 90% of the time and is totally un-obtrusive. Overall I think that the layout of the cabin is clean and easy to navigate. My .02

    Re: Why a pop-up nav screen?

    I usually keep the screen up, to get all current information, especially traffic info. That said, I really love the graphics displayed when the screen is down. The NAV does work with the screen down, after setting up the destination via the touch screen or OnStar. The screen has to be up initially, but then can be lowered. You will lose the map, of course, but you will still have the voice directions and gongs. It's particularly useful late at night on the highway, where the map screen can be a bit distracting in the total darkness.

    Re: Why a pop-up nav screen?

    Why a pop up nav screen? Well, I had a car with CUE in it home the other night. My fiance' gets in to check it out and her first comment was "why doesn't it [the screen] go away?" She has had lasik and lights at night bother her. She likes that she can completely put the screen down in my V. Although I don't think the lack of a hide away screen will keep us from buying one of the cars I had home at some point.

    The new Cadillac HMI, CUE. Cadillac User Experience.



    CUE.

    Or when I stop being sort of a smart ass, were you asking, what car would you have that would have that in it?

    ATS, they are wonderful little cars to drive, even in FE2 AWD form.
