    So you're saying you can navigate thru XBMC without looking at the screen, and just by using the buttons on the remote? I find that very hard to believe.

    Touchscreen is easier. That's why so many people use it. Plus, the IR route... if you're on a long trip and batteries die, you're pretty much screwed unless A. you brought a wired remote of some kind, or B. you find a store that sells batteries and just deal with it in the meantime.

    And no, I don't have to take my eyes off the road to skip to the next track or go back to the previous track with my touchscreen. The buttons are always in the same place unless my navigation is up.

    No, not through all the screens, but once you're in "My Music" and the library is loaded up and it's just a matter of "next song" or "next artist" or whatever, yeah, easier for me with remote I think than a touch screen would be without taking my eyes off the road. Eh, if it works for you, to each his own.
