I agree that the interface could use a serious overhaul. There is some irregularity across some of the screens and in the function of the steering wheel controls, such as the OK button being "pause" for the aux input while the same button does nothing for satellite radio. It's also very difficult to direct-tune the satellite radio.

Ineffective use of space and wasted space are hallmarks of terrible interface design and they could be improved dramatically. With SYNC being touted as an "upgradeable" system, I hope they have improvements in mind. I know I'm not the only person on here involved in interface design at a professional level, and so I would hope that they would at least entertain suggestions as they hear them.

Also: I wonder what the resolution of the basic SYNC system's LCD is.
