Do new cars have too much tech now ?
really just a matter of what there is being of the wrong caliber? In truth; isn't even the asking of that question symptomatic of there being too little of the right sort?
What we endure today is unreliable voice control and woefully inadequate human interactivity, minimal to zero interconnectivity, unsophisticated user profile setting and management, primitive fault reporting, marginal diagnostics and non existent adaptive 'work around' capabilities. etc. etc. The list goes on, but for a variety of reasons, unless driving around in a 'classic' from yestercentury is more preferable there's likely no going backwards.
Tech as used in this context also means computing and the widely accepted purpose of this is to better manage problems of large underlying complexity. Generally over time good tech solutions exhibit a tendency for these to shrink and even to disappear i.e. carburettors, points, choke, intermittent screen wiping, handbrake etc. The corollary to this is that whenever tech, by it's broader definition, gives you something such as ease of use i.e. motorised door windows. It may also take something away i.e. manual operation.
So for anyone who thinks there's too much tech in cars today the bad news is likely there's a lot more coming. The good news is it should inevitably look like less, work better and do more without demanding greater effort, involvement or know how from a user.
Would anyone ever ask the same question about trains, boats or 'planes?
