SMK Electronics designs the two-step "touch anywhere" resistive force feedback touch panel for car navigation equipment. According to the company, the device is safe, simple, and intuitive. It features five basic finger movements or gestures that users can choose from: slide, long push, slide vertically or horizontally, rotate, and deep hard push. The user interface is similar to the experience an individual encounters when operating a touchpad on a computer. The tactile feature has multiple feedback feelings to differentiate sections or points on the screen. The positive tactile feel allows users to know they activated a specific function without having to look at the screen.
