I have had no problems pressing the wrong button. It does require a definite press. If your thumb isn't in exactly the right place it doesn't activate, so its difficult to hit the wrong button.

Until you get the hang of it, a quick glance at the steering wheel will confirm where you are aiming for. You don't have to watch your thumb, just a glance before you move it. Your eye is off the road for less time than for a glance at the interior mirror or a wing mirror, or a glance at the speedo or sat nav, so its not a safety issue.

Thanks, I'm researching. I think I'd choose between Onyx Black or Cloud Blue like yourselves too!

IMO the black is not the best color for this car, that is smaller than a real SUV which instead benefits from a dark bodywork.
The EX30 characteristic contrasted look "Roof top and door mirror caps in contrast colour, Onyx Black" in this case wouldn't be so appealing.

I've found my actual car, running 1.3.1, seems to be better on the buttons compared to the two demos I took out.

However two of the buttons seem poorer than the others. "Speed down" on the left and "Google" on the right. They sometimes don't respond to repeated jabs.

Health to drive anyway, good to hear that you got your actual car.

Hello, I've found similar, if not the same dot stickers on amazon, for anyone else looking for it. Name is Loc-Dots. https://www.amazon.com/Original-Loc-Dot ... 08NFG5G21/
