You can control your phone, climate, the Nav of course (and SYNC services I'd imagine) and as the picture shows your media as well.

Why they didn't just re-use code that worked is beyond me, but this system is older and works better.
Ahhh, gotcha. Thanks for the clarification. :-) Hopefully the rumors I've been reading about the new MFT using a version of Windows 8, as an underlying OS, are true. That might turn out to be pretty nice!!
