Have to wait 10 minutes before the steering wheel cools. But the inside of the car is like a furnace.

Crack a window, park somewhere that doesn't get hit with so much sun, get some of those foil shadey things?

Yep a beaming sun through a window will do that. You either live with it, let some air in or buy one of those funky screens which reflect a lot of the heat back out of the car.

The UK it’s not too big a problem on the whole but in places like Florida it can be truly unbearable even if you just park up for like an hour.

I think the foil or cardboard things you put inside your windscreen helps.

Also, if the weather is warm, could you walk the journey?

tbh the main reason I try and avoid parking in the sun is birdcrap, my cars a magnet for it already and the last thing i want is the sun burning it into the paint before i get a chance to clean it and throw stones at a few birds.

How would you like to be? Cold in summer? Park the car in shadow or in covered parking, cover the steer wheel with something and will be better.
You cant imagine how is in hot countries....

I just chuck an old bar towel over the wheel to keep the sun off. I honestly don't think it's ever gotten so hot that I couldn't drive safely though.
