That's how my HTC Sensation 4G works, anyway.. I presume all devices should work that way.

Congrats on the new ride, btw. I broke 200 miles since Thursday earlier. :)
I have one rhing to add to that. Right now I have ny phone synced up, but I deactivated "media" to be sent through the car. When it was activate, the prompts were not sent through the speakers.

Basically you're saying that if you can hear music through bluetooth there should be no reason not to have the prompts.

If audio is being sent over bluetooth, then your prompts will be over bluetooth. Otherwise they should be as normal. Is this not what you are experiencing?

Dealership did our SYNC update as part of some sort of recall. The screen looks a little different now. The biggest complaint is thet the Sirius stations no longer display the title and artist. Is there a setting I'm missing?

Yea ... they left the Song&Artist info out of the homescreen (very disappointing) but if your on the entertainment (sirius screen) they should appear. Make sure your not in Direct Tune mode. Turn off Direct Tune if so, it works like a toggle switch.

Also see if the HD radio no longer shows Song & Artist info when on entertainment screen. I was checking out a demo last weekend with v3 MFT and didn't see any song&artist info when listening to HD channels. In fact I didn't even see any HD1 or HD2 channels at all. Did they do away with the HD radio all together or just the info? It really sucks they deleted so many features thats why I still have my update package un-opened and plan on keeping the v2 MFT until they add the features and functionality back into the v3 system.

When I bring my car in for service I will specify not to upgrade MFT or they will have one unhappy customer demanding the v2 system I purchased be returned. I know they can't do this so I would then want a refund for the MFT package I purchased (around $850 i think).

Was this an MFT upgrade or a SYNC upgrade? There is a separate MFT thread here in the forum.

I suppose it should be in the MFT thread. I keep forgetting that SYNC and MFT are different features. We have the full touchscreen one.

I like my SYNC, but the one thing that annoys me is the last few times I've climbed out of the car, I nail the Sync paddle with my knee. Being 6'4" is not convenient.

I must be missing something here, what's the SYNC paddle? Maybe I just don't realize it because I'm 5-foot nothin'. LOL

Why the button on the steering wheel you hit to activate Sync, of course.
