Dull screen

Post by ThatBloke » Tue Jan 14, 2020 1:35 pm

Have to say the screen on the Meridian is a bit dull.
I look at the stereo screens on lessercars and they are far better than what is in, what is supposed to be a prestige car.
Where's the album cover for starters?

It's not brilliant by any means but a darn sight better than some other cars in the same price range, the Audi system looks like it's stuck on as an afterthought and the BMW has the same look as 30 years ago!

My Wife has a 2 year old top of the line Q3 and it doesn't even show the album art at all and has a really mixed up look to the display.
