Does this get rid of the 'sync! please say a command...' prompt? This has been getting annoying lately and i've just been pulling the command prompt button twice to move mrs. sync lady along quicker.
If you put voice commands into advanced mode - she stops prompting you when you pull the paddle. Instead sync just beeps.

Nope I have the auto and have been given many trophies! Averaging 41 mpg. I didn't remove weight or inflate tires just drive with smooth speed changes.

I've got select shift and there are only two flowers shown on my screen, all five petals on each but none for shifting. Don't know why, don't really care, just interesting.

By select shift you mean the automatic? Only manual trans gives you the shifting points. If you press "OK" on that screen and wait then you may see the trophy.

It won't. I've tried that kind of thing at a stoplight, tried to change my wallpaper, didn't work, it has to be in Park to get functionality for video/settings changes. Doesn't apply to things like replay and browsing artists and such, but for system settings and watching videos, yes, it explicitly has to be in Park. The Lock Pick is something I'll consider though... xbox in the car, ftw.

Several Fanatics apparently have the shift points with the automatic - like you, I believe that was only applicable to the manual clutch tranny, but I don't doubt our friends for two reasons - 1. they may be right and 2. who cares. The Select Shift in the SEL up (etc) is basically the same Power Shift wet clutch automatic offered in the SE, but with the ability to shift through all six gears manually, without an driver operated clutch. In "D" position the TCM shifts for you but by selecting "S" (only D and S on the selector) one can shift manually (without clutch) in the "S" position. The Power Shift (with or without Select Shift) differs from the traditional automatics we're used to seeing in American cars, and in most European cars prior to 2008 (Ford Europe and BMW came out with one that year, the VW Golf Mk4 had one in 2003). These trannys have no torque converter but instead use automatically activated twin-wet-clutches in what is pretty much two geared transmissions working together.

600 mile road trip tomorrow - our first since getting our SEL.

Thanks for the info. I was thinking in the past that I had paired my iphone with a friends 2008 Sync while stopped at a light.

FWIW, my SE with the sport package does this also.

True, only standard in the SEL and Ti.
