Very good & indeed valuable informationAmong the most debated topics regarding the '22 MDX is whether Acura should have supplied a touch screen instead of the True Touch Interphase or TTIP. Some have actually asked for both. Ironically, Acura actually makes a touch screen available except they don't advertise it as such. This touchscreen feature is accessible if you download the Cabin Control app from either the Apple Store or Google.
With Cabin Control installed on your phone and linked to the car through your vehicle's Wi-Fi, your cell phone acts as a touch screen and with the exception of one or two features, you or your passengers (with your permission) can run almost every infotainment feature in the MDX: navigation, audio (radio, USB, Bluetooth etc.), CarPlay, Android Auto and even the rear climate controls, a feature which is not available from the TTIP. Everything you do on your phone is replicated on the infotainment screen. In short, you can control the infotainment screen from your phone by touch without ever having to interact with the TTIP pad!
Acura doesn't advertise this feature I suspect, because, then, the question would be why not simply replace TTIP with this. And for whatever reason, they want to be the TTIP brand. I personally have no problems with TTIP, but for those of you who want a touch screen, Cabin Control is your answer. Acura may choose to go "touch" one of these days, but until they do, just download that app!
