    I agree! I have been using an ATS as a loaner for a few days .... and while the Cue seems like a good attempt to streamline things and it looks pretty cool .... they have over-complicated what should be very simple functions. Changing the radio station and volume, as well as temperature, are really frustrating --- a lot of fumbling around just to change the volume.

    I cannot comment myself as I've not used the system. My V has been to reliable so no loaners...When I read comments like its too hard to adjust the volume, well I wonder. Aren't there discrete buttons on the steering wheel to adjust the volume? I think alot of the complaints are just not being familiar with the layout of the controls. A friend has an XTS and he really likes cue, and he is no techie.

    As a matter of fact there is an up/down volume control on the steering wheel. I rented an xts for a trip from nc to ny and back for a wedding. Cue was great. And if it's so difficult, the voice recognition is excellent, so there shouldn't be any issues.

    Yep. I don't hate the Que interface, but the touch of the controls is horrible.

    The uConnect is 10x better and easier to use.

    With the steering wheel controls, many commands are redundant. I think if you actually owned a car with CUE and had all the presets done to your tastes and everything else was fully tailored, most of these complaints would be rescinded...

    I would tend to agree. I have driven a couple of loaners with CUE. Most of the time you'll use the steering wheel controls and voice command.

    I largely use voice commands now to set destinations and make calls even with the outdated tech in my V.

    When I drove the new CTS 2.0t I noticed the steering wheel rear buttons were somewhat hard to reach length and keep my full grip on the wheel, and I have long fingers (please no jokes). To me if they were located a little higher up on the steering wheel they would be more accessible.
