3. Mercedes COMAND


COMAND may not have the same visual flair as the other systems on the list, but it works very well and is easy to use. There’s practically no learning curve. Like the jog-dial on old school Blackberry or Palm devices, the Mercedes COMAND system just asks you to turn the wheel and click.

2013-Mercedes-Benz-ML-550-33.jpgThis year Mercedes launched an updated version of COMAND in the C-Class and S-Class, adding sexier animations and graphics. Hopefully the simple formula that made it such a hit in our office remained intact. We’ll know more once we give it a spin. We also hope that the upgrade resulted in a more visually exciting color scheme than the grey and black hues from past models.

The dial interface is a key component because it works intuitively with the radio application. It looks like an old radio and allows you to dial to the station of your choice.

    My Ford Touch? Having that on the list immediately makes this article worthless.

    Cadillac CUE? This gets more pathetic with every click.

    I actually like MyFord Touch… I have it in my Focus and have NEVER had an issue.

    Uconnect shouldnt even exist… Bmw 1st…Audi 2nd and Merc 3rd..

    Have a 2014 RAM with Uconnect – close to perfection – easy – so easy my wife get it! It is fast and the garmin interface is great. Best part the system has touch as well as traditional buttons – meaning that you can make adjustments without taking your eyes off the road. Just an FYI the apps you mentioned for the Jeep are also on the RAM system.

    Toyota Entune, NissanConnect and Hyundai BlueLink did not make the list.

    Lexus Enform is pretty user friendly for the old people……take notice cadillac.

    I agree with UConnect being number 1 I’ve test driven other cars and I’m apprehensive to switch to something else. I like my challenger well, and dodge makes it super easy to use.
