While waiting for my on-order Limited Plug-in Hybrid I have been driving vicariously through the video reviews. A recurring theme, of course, is the kvetching about the all-touchscreen interface on the Limited model. The reviewers that make specific comments talk about having to glance away from the road and down at the touchscreen to accurately find the desired touchpoint.

I was thinking about a possible solution to this problem and then discovered that it already existed: Bump Dots for the visually impaired. These are tiny stick-on raised dots that visually impaired people put on appliances, telephones, keyboards, etc. to provide tactile feedback. I think that a few of these dots attached at the most-used touchpoints, especially for controls that aren't duplicated on the steering wheel, might facilitate using the touchscreen without having to look down. The Bump Dots come in a variety of sizes and colors, including clear and black.

One of the best selections that I found is at Lighthouse For The Blind And Visually Impaired. You can support this organization while (maybe) solving a problem.

Bump Dots are available on Amazon, but let's not make Bezos any richer.

If anybody does try Bump Dots, please let me know your experience. (Is using the touchscreen that much of a problem? Being an ancient technoid, I figured it was something that I could just get used to.)

That's a great idea you have there. What i will tell you is that I don't think it is as big a deal as people are making it out to be. I have had mine since the end of May and i know pretty much where to reach be memory and the one function i was bothered by was solved by programing the mode button to activate my Android Auto for music . I only touch the screen for the agreement ( most times and never really touch it again the rest of my drive. Make sure you program the buttons available to what you would use most and then just enjoy your awesome new ride.
