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.

I waited 6 weeks and picked up my Tucson Hybrid “Limited” last week. So, 7 days now with this awesome machine. I was worried about the display too, but it’s a mechaia.

No radio volume or tuning knobs: Not needed. Passenger can get to them very easily and driver has volume up, down and mute on the steering wheel. And even, as the driver, if I want to use the console, a blink of a glance and it’s a piece of cake. Not a problem.

I would not use bump dots or anything else. the display is beautiful and extremely easy to use. Some review say it lags, but I find it remarkably responsive. Don’t deface it. But you might want a screen protector.

However, what I need to know is how to disable stupid things like “cannot use this while driving.” There are many things that a passenger should be able to do while the driver is driving.

For me, it's a semi solution of an answer looking for its issue.

The screen is different and I wouldn't have gone the knobless route giving the choice, but you'll get used to it.

The bump dots will just be a obstacle when cleaning and wiping down the screen.

It’s a fine suggestion, sir. I’ve learned many things about my Limited that were not mentioned in any of the dozens and dozens of reviews I’ve watched, American, Canadian and European. Did you know the car has ambient sounds, Like crashing waves, outdoor cafe, forest and more? Did you know it can close the vents automatically when entering a tunnel? These and many other features are not mentioned anywhere.

The job of critics is to criticize. Like slow display (not true), limited power (mine accelerates and pushes me back in the seat and I don’t need to “burn rubber”) or rear blinkers too low. That means someone is following way too close.
My only beef is that the 2022 is available in only black, white and 5 shades of grey. The silver looks unfinished, and the “deep sea” (the one I got) is basically black with a teensy bit of blue, only discernible in direct, bright sunlight.

Then we discover other stupid things like, a passenger cannot type destinations into the navigation system while the vehicle is in motion. If you find a fix, let us know! Oy…
