I wonder if the Ody designers thought it would be better if people found these particular buttons by feel rather than sight.
Illuminating buttons in that particular location close to the windshield increase the visual "noise" in front of the driver. True, it would be a very minor distraction, but still it would be a distraction. I like the front view to be as unemcumbered as possible.
It took several practice attempts, but I can now reach the correct buttons without effort, as if on autopilot.
The buttons are differentiated both in location as well as with the "braille" nubs on each button.
I programmed my garage with the center button, because for me that is the easiest to locate among the three.
It may be about as easy to locate the buttons as it would be to locate a separate remote. At first, I reached up to the visor and just move right until finding the buttons.
One trick would be to program all three buttons to the same function, if they weren't needed to control other gadgets. Then it wouldn't matter which one you pressed.
I open the garage door while driving in the alley, about five houses away. I don't want to be looking for a button then, I need to keep my eyes
on the road.
Just a different perspective and I do appreciate the preferences of others.
