|This car dashboard has more stuff than my in-home|
In the 2015 Driver Interactive Vehicle Experience (DrIVE) Report, released this week by J.D. Power, researchers surveyed 4,200 car and light-truck owners within 90 days of purchasing the vehicle; a critical for adoption of new features.
A third of those drivers report never using the head-up display, which shows things like speed, directions or warnings on the windshield, or built-in apps such as Pandora and Yelp.
A fifth of respondents said they'd rather not have these options in their next vehicle they buy either, as well as technology that integrates controls for your smartphone into the car's in-dash media player.
What respondents said they DO want: vehicle health diagnostics, blind spot detection and warning and adaptive cruise control, which adjusts the speed to maintain a safe, consistent distance between your car and the one in front of you.
