    Re: horrible FM reception?

    I have an Andriod phone too and it works fine. I just touch the CUE's icon and it starts Pandora on my phone. My only complaint is that I need to remember to maximize my phone's media volume when using Pandora because it affects the CUE volume. I've forgotten that step twice when the media volume was low. When I switched from Pandora to FM, the FM volume was LOUD! Is your IPhone's media volume off? Worth a look. Bert

    Re: horrible FM reception?

    finally looked at the manual....you can't steam pandora over your cue with an Iphone!!! Android and BLACKBERRY only. Blackberry....really??

    the only way to use the pandora on your cue is to plug your iphone into the usb port in the center console. I keep my phone mounted to the left of the steering wheel. 1-the usb won't reach the center console, 2- I keep my phone plugged in the cigarette lighter so it charges while I drive.


    this is a big FAIL for the Cue.

    Yeah, imagine that.... some of us actually still use and prefer Blackberry. Anyway, I say that tongue in cheek, and although I am a bit of an Apple dis-liker, perhaps there was some architectural reason that the iPhone couldn't stream Pandora over CUE with an iPhone.

    Back to the original thread topic: I have found the FM reception is fine for the whole 2 days I have had the car, FWIW.

    Hello Anthony31188,

    I am sorry you are experiencing issues when trying to connect your phone to the CUE system while playing Pandora. If you private message me with your name and VIN, I am more than happy to assist you with this concern. However, the CUE center that I need to make contact with on your behalf are closed until Monday.

    Sincerely,

    Laura M.

    Obviously the next big thing is already here and it's not iPhone Time to step up to a real phone!

    Seriously though. My bet is it's the way the iPhone works vice the Que. Apple is simply a PITA to work with on developing apps and has a lot of restrictions in their approval process that might cause the app to not work as you would expect.

    well the only way it will work is through the USB cable this is waht they told me CUE Costomer Service. So there is nothing we can do about that

    yup told me the same thing, its not an option for me though since I need to have the phone mounted to the left of my steering wheel and the usb plug doesn't reach from there.

    Re: horrible FM reception?

    Customer service, are you still following this?

    since people are getting their amps replaced, and it seems to fix the problem, is there a way to see if i have the "defective" amp, or not?
    i'm assuming i do.

    and what do i need to tell my dealership in order to get it replaced? apparently they are not aware of any "amp replacements".

I know that many posts on forums, in general, are made by those who have a problem. However, I'll also bet the house (farm is gone) that there are many out there who never get onto a forum to report their problems. There are many instances out there where car problems were noted on forum for years before the manufacturer did anything about it...if they ever did.

    Right now, I do have unacceptable radio problems. Also, living in SoFL, I will need to have more tinting put on (cars come with 70% tinting which allows 70% light transmission, but don't know how much solar energy is blocked...probably not too much), but I can't do it until this radio problem is solved. What would happen if I put on tinting and Caddy then tells me that I have to have the rear antenna replaced? Will they also pay to have the back window re-tinted???
    I agree, I'm having poor FM reception in my XTS also when compared to my wife's mercedes or even nissan. so there are quite a few of us out there with poor radio reception. The dealer has looked at it once and could find nothing wrong. After, I escalated with the dealership they have offered I bring the car back and they'll again take it up with the Caddy engineers. I'm wondering if I suggest to them to either replace the amp or check the antenna grounding as suggested in some of the posts here. Will keep everyone posted on this saga.
