Big > Bigger and Bigger. Isn't that the American way?
Looking forward to a 65" screen in my future autonomous vehicle.
My screen is bigger than your screen. GREAT!! I'll have no screen envy here.
I'd choose all rotary knobs every single time. Clearly I'm the outlier. Enjoy your unnecessary tech, I'll just enjoy the drive while I actually pay attention to the road.

That Tesla looks like a Pontiac Grandam Cheap, I have sat in one, and its not that cheap, but, man does it look cheap in the image
Certainly, a lot of those screens are driven by just slapping a large but cheap, rectangular, generic screen, in the wrong place, and putting anything and everything on it with layers and submenus that will be very unsafe to use while driving. Tesla is the poster child for this concept.
But quite a few cars are going for the configurable and integrated instrument panel displays, showing more information, in a much safer way, with most information right in front of the driver without having to search for it. A lot of them have displays which look like they ARE analog gauges. And yes, in many cases simple rotary knobs can be the best way to control functions.
Heads Up Displays are also great for some functions, keeping your attention out of the cockpit, and back towards the road where it belongs.

I have a friend who has a model S and the whine of the motors gets into the cabin intrusive not as quite as the volt. Speaking of which, I would love to see an info overload comparison between Tesla and say Bolt
I'm waiting for dashboard almost as big as windscreen...you will have maybe 40x40 cm of clear "window" on driver side and everything else will be display...and camera all around.
Did anyone ever had to change those displays..how much does it cost?
I really hate the fad of the floating tablet look. It looks cheap. I think the best integration I have seen so far IMO is the Mercedes S-Class even though it's not touch screen it at least looks like it belongs.

This is partially a generational issue unless you are a tech guy. When integrated properly there is no other way to go. None. Leave the 20th century in the 20th century.

I prefer my cars without the screens. I have cars with the screens and just turn them off when I'm driving them. The screens along with Start/Stop tech are some of the new technologies in cars I can do without forever.
