Does anyone miss being able to control climate from the steering wheeling controls? This feature was able on the first generation of my ford/lincoln touch. There were also advanced navigation controls where you could have selected previous destinations from the wheel.

Ford / Lincoln removed this from all models. I wonder why?

We are happy with the voice commands that let us control climate etc. Sounds like the advanced controls would have been a nice feature though.

Yes I miss it! Had it in my 2012 Edge. The Fusions have it... but the 2015 MKC and MKZ don't :( I hate the voice control thing, never use it. I like buttons!

I don't miss the climate controls on the wheel at all with the huge buttons on the dash. And I believe if they crammed them on the wheel we would all be complaining about the complexity and mini buttons. Design has tradeoffs, and I think they made the right choice there.
Besides, my automatic climate control sits beside me on longer trips. It is kind of like who has the tv remote........

Doesn't seem too hard to just use the controls on the centre console to control the climate. I could see it being nice to have those controls on the steering wheel but only if they could do it in a way that wouldn't make the controls on the steering wheel too busy.

It has nothing to do with the center stack controls. It was nice being able to change the temp without using voice commands or taking your hands off the wheel.

remember when the only control on steering wheels was the horn?
If people would not text and drive would eliminate a large number of accidents.
The climate controls on the MKC are fine

You're missing the point. It's less distracting when you don't have to take your hands off the wheel.

I never use two hands on the steering wheel daily driving. I will at 100 plus or on an oval track, but that is totally different and very rare anymore.

There are more than enough updated interesting buttons placed on the wheel. Not much need to fuss with the C/C, that is why we pay for the system in the first place.

There are no extra buttons Linc. You obviously don't know how it worked.

Alright, being that all I have ever had on my steering wheels for C/C were up and down temps buttons on front or on back or voice commands. How about you explain how the first generation of My Ford/Lincoln Touch worked from the steering wheel to control the C/C without some kind of button or voice command on the steering wheel. Or add just a link?
