Report: Future versions of BMW X5 and X6 are to get touchscreen interfaces

The words BMW and user-friendliness and ergonomics just never have seemed to go well together and more often than not, average buyers would find BMWs overwhelming, tedious and nearly enigmatic unless you had a Masters in computer engineering, or a nerd (like yours truly).

In order to get the full use of the technology BMWs of today have to offer, it would involve going through the War and Peace length-inspired bible that the manufacturer calls a “User Manual.” Or it had to involve learning the feature-rich iDrive system and controller interface, which requires some time even for nerds like me.

But to possibly alleviate the situation, BMW might be resorting to touchscreen interfaces for some future versions. Touchscreens I think are always welcome in this day and age when cars have more technology than your average person’s TV setup. So this could help things a little bit.

Enthusiast site, BMW Blog reports the next X5 and X6 will get lots of technology already found on the new 7-Series. This could even include the new gesture technology featured in Bavaria’s flagship sedan.

Do you think the new touchscreens and gesture combinations make cars easier to use, for once?
