    I have my 3 now and absolutely love it. One thing it like is a way to adjust cabin temperature more easily. Currently I'm tapping the up or down arrow on the screen. Which is fine but difficult to find while driving as it's small. A slider or voice command would be better. Anyone found an easier way?

    Nope, hoping for voice control soon. I would be nice to increase the size of all screen graphics.....clock, battery, energy bar, etc.

    I don't think I have had a need to change mine after I set it to 70 degrees.

    My home thermostat has two settings, one for heat and one for AC. I would like my car to be just as convenient. One number would be OK if there was a way to set a dead band. If I could set it at 71 and have a +-3 degree dead band it would heat to 68 degrees or cool to 74 degrees if needed, and do nothing in between. This should not be hard to implement.

    I think we all are hoping for a better way to adjust the temp like voice or scroll wheel control. I'd settle for bigger screen icons as a first step. Way too much valuable screen real estate is being taken up by the front heated seat controls. They should give priority to controls that are used by 100% of people throughout the year, not just those who live in cold-climates part of the year.

    After 6 years of interface improvements the real estate is still formatted to a stationary car instead of one that is moving and bouncing. I can't understand why something so simple and easy has not been addressed.

    Same here too. I don't find the temp control hard to manage. I just put my fingers behind the screen to sort of grip it a little in case I bounce.

    I think you are perhaps all being far too careful when attempting to adjust the temperature?

    I find that if I get my finger pretty much anywhere on the temperature icon and then slide my finger up (to increase the set-temp), or down (to decrease the set-temp) then I get the adjustment I want.

    There doesn't seem to be any need to precisely tap on the little up or down arrows. A quick flick over the icon in the proper direction seems to work fine.
