I love MOST systems or CANbus systems (the geek speak for vehicle components talking to one another).  I got my first kick out of it in an Audi seven years ago when the information display shared the satellite radio text with what was on the head unit.  Lexus unveiled the new IS at the North American International Auto Show.  According to Lexus “All IS models are equipped with the next generation, Lexus Display Audio or Remote Touch-controlled Navigation multimedia systems. Both multimedia systems provide industry-first complimentary real-time traffic and weather information delivered without a subscription through HD Radio Technology.  The new steering wheel is the first on a Lexus to coordinate multimedia system control with both the instrument cluster and center console displays.”  Sounds pretty cool.  We’ll keep you posted how it works when we test one out.
