    bluetooth audio streaming

    Anyone know how to upgrade a V's audio system to allow this? Sucks that such a sweet ride does not have a feature a low end Kia has. Thanks.

    It makes sense that a 5-year old design does not have the cutting edge features a new to market design does.

    I think he just wishes the CUE system was in the CTS-V

    I am waiting for the first news story about "man who crashes because he was trying to figure out CUE instead of paying attention to the road"

    Was fiddling around with the ATS at a recent food festival in LA. That CUE screen is way too shiny with too much glare!

    Thanks for the advice. Do you know if you have to re-pair your phone each time you get in the car or does it do it automatically? BTW, I have a Samsung Galaxy S3

    It appears from the customer reviews that it will reconnect automatically. I have a Galaxy Nexus. I will buy one soon and report back on the effectiveness.

    Bluetooth isn't new, and if the CTS allows phone pairing, it really should support A2DP. I was a bit disappointed by this as well.

    Not all phones will pair with the CTS-Vs Bluetooth. My Samsung Alias II does, but I don't know about others. There is a list somewhere.

    Here is what I just bought. I'll let you know how it works. The only thing I don't know is if the V's USB port will charge it.

    If The V's USB will not charge it, I'll get one of these..

    I can't think of any reason it wouldn't charge it.

    The USB port may not put out enough voltage to charge all phones.
