    True. But it looked similar to the v-sport. Which looks like a step back IMHO. I say stay conventional on the general masses and go wild on the V.

    I played with it while test driving 2 ATSs; I had no problems with it, all the touch points and sliding adjustments worked just fine for me and with no practice was able to plug in navigations points on the fly. I found it to be pretty intuitive and seems to be a pretty slick system.

This direction ultimately creates more compexity and confusion. No real advances from the Euros here. Once the minor bugs are worked out with the CUE. Cadillac will be yrs ahead in this category. I hope for a manual wagon with this option in the future.
    The one feature I really liked about my BMW iDrive was that you could use it while the car was moving. Not locked out of anything. That meant my passenger could program the NAV for me. Does CUE allow for this?

    You can do anything in CUE with voice commands but some things are locked out for touch (which only makes sense)

    ... and while there should be a way to tell if the driver or a passenger is reaching for the screen there currently isn't

    The problem I have with voice commands are that you need to know the exact phrasing to use and if the windows are open it usually doesn't work.

    My problem with idrive is that the paths for accomplishing simple tasks are multi-step and too complex. Its almost as if you need to study a computer manual to become efficient at programing. CUE is more user friendly and intuitive.

    CUE does not use exact commands ... sometimes there are certain words that work better than others but CUE uses natural language voice controls (similar to Siri on the iPhone) and should be able to understand many variations of commands

    Re: Who is planing upgrading to the new CTS -V/V Sport when they become available

    I guess my 2 days with the ATS loaner and CUE were different.

    1. screen was nice but seriously I hate fingerprints so it was a bit annoying
    2. haptic feedback was very slow and lagged which made me ponder if I really did change a setting
    3. I'm sure there is a setting (I never bothered to loo) but the start of CUE everytime was insanely loud in the car, I was mashing buttons all over the place to mute it.

    I'm sure it's a step in the right direction but I still don't like most of these systems. I guess I like auto climate control systems of the late 90s where it was temp up/down, recirc air, and which way to go.

    I hope it gets improved, ASAP. For a high performance car, that aggravation is not appreciated.

    Re: Who is planing upgrading to the new CTS -V/V Sport when they become available

    Because I take my car to high performance driving schools on tracks with both right and left turns, if I stay with a V it will be the ATS-V. While I love my CTS V Coupe with it six speed manual, even with magnetic ride control it is still honestly too heavy.

    I am also interested in the Corvette C7. I have been enamored with the Z06. If it is reasonably priced I probably will strongly consider it. Otherwise, I will test drive a Gran Sport when it is available. I will be interested to see if body will be the same as a Z06. I can live with only 450 hp because I am sure I can find an intake system that will bump it up closer to 475 hp.

    Plus, I like the removable roof. Some driving schools will not allow anything but a solid roof with or without a sunroof. I have found an outfit that does not have that requirement. Plus, it puts on the best driving schools for the bang for the buck. Here is its website:

    So as Franz Joseph said in the movie Amadeus "So there you have it."
