Cadillac Tony has been kind enough to answer several questions about the iPad in another thread, and in doing so he mentioned that the iPad is:

". . . a great piece of technology, and definitely a nice way to introduce the capacitive touch screen in CUE to folks not accustomed to using one."

This brings up another question in my mind about the CUE screen. My understanding about the capacitive touch screen technology is that it does not work if one is wearing gloves. Is that true? I'm in the midwest and wear gloves during the winter months.

No workie for me with gloves. Just tried it. Just turn on the heated steering wheel and take off the gloves.

There are also companies that make gloves compatible with capacitive touch devices, like this one.

Or if you are a Harley rider, just get out your fingerless gloves:D:D. Or you could take a trip down to the local Harley shop and get a pair.
