    Very good video on the tech features. Excellent responsive screen. Great to see. My only concern would be the highly reflective glass screen while driving in sunlight. It's even hard to find a tV these days which doesn't have a highly shiny screen. Why not Matt Finish so were not looking at everything else except the screen from the reflective surface?

      Yeah, I always get matte screen protectors for my phone.

        Well, this confirms my suspicion. All the climate controls are available on the central screen, so the Great Wall of Buttons really isn't necessary.

          This was exactly my question. Why have them in both places?

              Great video HPO! You really nailed it covering the screens, etc. One observation on the Great Wall- SHE can adjust all of the controls on HER side with the wall!

                That's literally the ONLY reason I can see they would have left it that way since everything can be adjusted on the infotainment system.

                  As pointed out in a July video interview with Alexis Rausch, Corvette Infotainment Manager, “some users prefer buttons, other prefer IP screens to change climate controls” and GM wanted to give both their chosen method.

                      Navigating the on-screen menus requires the driver to take his or her eyes off the road much longer than finding and pressing a physical button.

                          Exactly.....the points made above as to why have the row of buttons. Safety for one, and common sense..some controls do not need to be solely on a touchscreen in a vehicle. People take their eyes off the road entirely too much already. It is not a good idea to have a built in iPad that you use to control everything in the car, and have no tactile buttons to control commonly used items. It might look cleaner in a design but it is impractical and not very safe for a vehicle. I like the climate controls exactly the way they designed them in the C8, and it still incorporates the passenger controls conveniently, cleaner look actually.

                            The bottom five or six buttons are solely for passenger controlling their environment. That leaves roughly 10 buttons the driver might wish to engage. The seat heater bottom (one of them) is not going to be important for what 9 months of the year, for some never.

                            I remain convinced that after a driver has driven a C8 for a couple of weeks, as many of the center buttons are tactilely different from each other, that the driver will need to look over the remaining buttons to change any of them. As a specific example, while I have only sat in a C8 three times (not even totally ten minutes), yet I already know by feel how to raise or lower the driver’s side cabin temperature without even looking, and which buttons raise and lower the fan speed progressively.

                              I agree 100% with both options. I personally like the buttons and feel it is better to work with and keep my eye on the road. Others may feel the opposite so good job Chevy/Corvette.
