Is there a way to replace the mic? It's really bad.
When I got my car my wife had no problem understanding me when I called her from the car. After the 3.0.2 update she says all she can hear is background noise and can barely understand me. I don't think the mic went bad. If it did, it is awfully coincidental that it would go bad immediately after installing 3.0.2. Some over at SMR say it can be made better by toying with the volume.

"I believe if you read some of the other threads you will find out you need to turn your volume up in the car. I found this out by trial and error with my friend. When talking BT to BT it really gets interesting when the other caller (Prius BT) insists it's your car. Just try increasing your volume control and see if that doesn't work."

And this guy had a good way to test it out:

"I actually called my work voicemail on the way in this morning. I had kept talking while turning the volume up, recording as I spoke. When I listened to the voicemail, it had started out with the open window clutter, and slowly cleared as I was adjusting the volume. Thanks for the help. Hopefully this was the cause. Ford should document that in the manual if it was."

I haven't tried this out yet so I can't speak from experience but just putting it out there in case you want to give it a try before looking into mic replacement. Can't hurt I guess.

PandaCar It might be a bad mike; most people say I sound quite clear (unless sunroof's open). Maybe the dealer can replace it under warranty?
