I find its easier to use voice commands or the HUD for the radio. I'm either listening to sirius or using the hard drive so the mode button on the wheels toggles between those, and then I can just scroll to the station using the HUD, or choose an artist with voice commands on the HD

I have my presets set for mostly phone numbers and menus that are more cumbersome to get to ie:

1 - phone #
2 - phone #
3 - phone #
4 - phone #
5 - nav to home
6 - traffic info
7 - poi search
8 - split screen on/off

One thing that I nocited while I was playing around in settings was that you can get rid of the ECO Pro gauge on the extended display.

I feel the MPG gauge is more useful than a blue bar so I was happy to get rid of that

Shifting the lever to the left (automatic) puts you in sport mode, then from the left position if you shift up that puts you in manual. Both of these modes should bypass auto/stop.

EF30

Regarding the roof, if you press "up," one click, the roof goes slightly ajar for ventilation. If you press backwards and "hold," once it will open all the way. Reverse to close, both "one" click.

huh? Are you saying all cars have the compass? I didnt get premium but if press a pin Sized hole under the mirror it will turn on?

You can keep the MPG gauge that is normally displayed

Correct, those aren't my pictures.

I'm saying that I've adjusted the options so it shows mpg in every mode, including ECO. No more ECO guage which IMO was useless

According to one of the video reviews, soft-touching the buttons will display what that button is programmed for. Sounds like a nice touch, no pun intended.

A few good ones I was going to say were already mentioned. I was particularly impressed that my iPhone address book uploaded automatically and I could immediately use voice to call specific people by name - no training needed.

Does it automatically upload ALL the contacts form your iPhone? Or can you upload specific ones?
