JD Power market researcher, found that 20 percent of new car owners had still not used approximately half of the technology features available in their vehicles within three months of purchase β€” the period after which drivers are less likely to adopt new features, researchers say.

The most underused feature was in-vehicle concierge systems that can recommend nearby restaurants or gas stations. It un used by 43 percent of respondents. Followed by mobile routers that turn a car into a Wi-Fi hot spot, unused by 38 percent.Automatic parking systems were unused by 35 percent of those surveyed, the report found.
