    Not a bad look. Curious to see how it'll look in Trailhawk form.

    Infotainment is fine. If they go bigger they need to get away from the square, it looks to big and makes the styles to uniform. I still sya thye need to angle it towards the drive some though, it feels like it's far away from teh driver when trying to mess with things. Even my dad thinks that when we go between the dart and cherokee

    I'd rather my car not even have the infotainment center. Knobs and tactile switches please.

    Mandated cameras now make a screen of some sort mandatory.
    But I would go for smaller rather than bigger if it were up to me.
    Just enough screen for the camera with knobs and switches and real gauges for the rest.

    I use my phone for navigation. Seems to be easier to use.

    Same here.

    Mainly because Google maps provides traffic updates, (also because in-dash GPS is always behind) and with Android Auto/CarPlay it can all be on that nice screen in your dash, so you don't have to worry about mounting your phone anywhere either. Right now, my phone is mounted to a A/C vent, and it blocks the output.

    Apple carplay and android auto make the phone navigation even better

    It doesn't actually have to be a display screen on the dash:

    Cameras in the mirrors are very hard to use due to the reflective coating. Not that it isn’t a cheaper way to meet the regulations, but still difficult to use.

    I've used them many times - for me they are easier. And far less prone to being washed out when the sun is coming into the car at a low angle.

    I think you mean screens and they work well when paired with a self dimming mirror as opposed to a static reflective layer.

    Yes I mean screeens and in the Chevy and Ram vehicles I’ve driven with them they’ve been equally hard to see.

    I don't think it will do anything to the 2-door buyer... those people are the diehards.

    I think that's become the norm though. DRL's off whilst turn signal on.
