    if apple made it, it would be easy and intuitive. because microsoft makes it, it's a huge confusing pain in the ass.

    i got a new truck yesterday an i messed around with sync all day. huuuuuge pain in the ass. none of it is intuitive. the menus are fucked up, voice prompts are super specific, an it requires weird combinations of button pushing. it really makes me appreciate how great apple products are even more than i already did. guarantee that if it was apple, you'd connect the iphone via bluetooth and the rest would just make total sense.

    i'll have to try to use siri through sync. haven't gotten that far yet.

    playing a song on iphone's ipod through sync:

    press aux button to select sync, then menu to display media menu, presss ok, play menu displays, press ok, use seek buttons until you find tracks, press ok, then use seek buttons to find song you want, then press ok to play it. then press ok button and say "what's playing." you can only use voice control by saying exact name of song as entered into your media player.

    I have to disagree a bit with you. I have a Ford navigation, so maybe the sync is more user friendly with that. When I start the car, my iphone connects automatically and starts playing my ipod. If I was listening to Pandora, pandora starts.

    That's big money over there; I'm not upset about the working conditions of the underage in a 3'rd world country; just the fact he had to build it for shitty music.

    You deserve a + rep

    in college i had to take a computer class just to learn DOS so i could write a fucking paper. had to learn all the combination of keys & phrases along with all the F keys... i sat there thinking computers suck & are no help. my work at the time had apple computers & i just turned the thing on & it was easy as shit & common sense to do anything i wanted. i never learned that old cumbersome dos bullshit & just used the apple for all my college work.

    Perhaps you should read the manual or visit the SYNC website instead of worrying about your eyebrows, buddy. :hw:
