Remote Touch

Integral to the Lexus Navigation System, Remote Touch is an innovative multi-function device offering simple, intuitive control over the Lexus CT 200h's audio, navigation, climate, phone and vehicle set-up systems.

Via a central transmission tunnel-mounted Remote Touch knob which incorporates reaction force feedback for enhanced tactility, it operates on the same principles as a computer mouse to allow the user to move a cursor quickly and easily over a selection of on-screen icons.

To facilitate the easier selection of icons, the system automatically 'pulls' the cursor to an icon passed in close proximity. This highly tactile feature makes the system extremely fast and easy to use, minimising driver distraction time.
