I use a mix of MFT, knobs, voice, steering wheel, depending on the function. Climate control is knobs only. Radio is turned on/off with the push button, but controlled by MFT, voice or controls on the steering wheel, just depends. It's neat having options.
Since we can now tap been anywhere on a quadrant instead of just corners, like before the big update, it's easier. I don't think my eyes are off the road any longer with MFT than with knob controls (like glancing over to increase temp), but if in traffic, not using anything until safe works.
