    Re: iPhone

    1) As was said, you have to use the AC Delco connector that comes with the car. It incorporates some electronics that allows the V to control the iPhone. If you use a regular iPhone charging/sync cable, you just get power and the car won't recognize the iPhone for other control.

    2) The AC Delco cable is the perfect length to have it directly under where the arm rest will fall on the connector portion that houses the electronics. Let the armrest fall on it once, and it won't work anymore. Don't ask me how I know.

    I found it pretty easy to cut the 3.5mm and USB connectors off the AC Delco cable and splice in some longer wires. Then I ran the wires from inside the glove box, under the center console trim and right out by where I mount the iPhone on the passenger side of the center console. Now it's easy to plug in, have full, control, and not need to fish around in the armrest all the time.

    did you drill a hole in the bottom of the cubby hole? do you have the proclip mount?

    I had the proclip mount in my previous car (lexus GS) and the phone was mounted let's say near the passenger a/c controls, which was great as I could see it while driving and operate it no problem. In the CTS their website shows it to be installed parallel with the ground near the shifter, if that's the only mounting point that's pretty useless for me having a manual as I can't mount it on my side as I'd hit it, and if I mount it on the passenger side, it seems I wouldn't be able to see it, let me know your feedback.
