ok. I think I see what is going wrong here.
It is kind of my fault for mixing two things without clarification.
I am not bashing the engineers for missing toggles.
I don't even think it is their fault persay. I am simply expressing that I would LIKE TOGGLES.
the engineer I AM BASHING completely separate from the option to toggle defaults like eco mode
is the one who designed the UI on the center console entertainment/nav/climate control unit.
that guy I want to Bi*&ch slap in front of his co workers while screaming
HAVE YOU EVERY ACTUALLY SAT IN THE CAR TO USE THIS
because that guy is a moron. or was instructed by morons to do it this way.
I consider the voice activated phone system to be downright DANGEROUS on the road and the nav system to be utterly useless over voice command and not much better on the side of the road with the touch panel.
the actual nav interface once it is going is not to bad (though way to slow to adapt and reroute) but the actual UI the interface between the person and the nav system is HORRENDOUS.
totally beyond garbage. as if it is DESIGNED to give noobs and lay people a hard time to operate.
it is my fault for mixing those in this one thread. it really annoyed me lately so its bleeding into my conversations.
I in NO WAY am bashing the engineers who designed the driving interface or the lack of default changes.
I just see those as inadequacies that should be addressable pretty easily.
in fact the UI for what I can the DASH panel (the little display in the middle) while I would definitely do it differently IT is not bad really. simple elegant if not perfect and functional. UNLIKE the central screen. Grrrr
again saying they might get stuck does not hold water with me since I can change it already now accidentally by moving the stinking drive stick.
ie strawman argument. find a new one
as for the apparent bashing. again sorry my fault for mixing engineers unintentionally
