I've noticed many people (including me) wanting to know more about the Polestar 2's Android Infotainment system. Unfortunately most journalists only focus a small amount of time reviewing the car's system even though I believe this is a standout feature. So here's a compilation I've gathered of some journalists talking about the system. Enjoy!
1. Carwow ~ 04:20 (time code)
2. Autogefühl ~ 11:50 (Note a cool feature at 13:20 where it tells you in the top right corner if your phone is currently being wirelessly charged)
3. Driving Electric ~ 03:07
And here's my opinion:
I think this is one of (if not) best infotainment screens currently out there. And yes, I think it dethrones the Model 3 in this respect. Polestar 2 edges out rivals in several aspects.
1. Large touch buttons
Hear me out. When going over those videos, one thing that you can see common between all the different pages visited is the absence of clutter. Each page/menu layout is organised in a large tile-like manner with huge buttons. This allows text to be larger, so you can see more clearly, and provide a larger touch point so you'll less likely miss the button you intended on pressing.
2. The drivers instrument cluster
This is where I think most people might prefer the Polestar 2 over Model 3. An instrument cluster screen means you have a dedicated area (closer to your line of sight) for your driving information without taking your centre screen's real estate.
3. Google Maps
I think this is pretty self explanatory :)
