SatNav on the new Civic

One of the great things about the Civic is the positioning of the satnav for the driver. On the new one the seem to have put it lower down. Any thoughts? I think it's a step backwards personally.

I totally agree. I'm guessing it's for a few possible reasons: Touchscreen (another drawback IMO) Easier to get at when it goes wrong Single unit if the radio is behind it

Eco display
The new Civic will replicate driving directions etc. on the top i-mid display

Look at 1:50 on this video (Ok its a US Civic, but UK 9th Gens will have basicly the same system minus the XM radio..)


So IMHO, the best of both... High level display and touch screen control
