    New '08 Escalade Owner - couple of questions

    First, thanks for allowing me in this forum. Looks like great stuff and cool members!

    I went to buy my first Escalade, a car I have wanted since they day they came out, 3 years ago with my wife.....and drove off with a Range Rover (because of wife). Ha ha. Enjoyed that for a while, but finally decided it was my turn and got an '08, one owner, 75K mile beauty. Diamond white, cream interior. Looks awesome. Anyway, enough bragging (sorry I'm a proud new dad)...

    A couple of questions:

    1. I have learned there is no hands-free/bluetooth way to talk on cell phone?! Have to say this was shocking given the qualify of vendor Cadillac is. The '06 Range Rover did it, so I just assumed an '08 Caddy would. Anyway, is there a workaround to this? I am in my car all the time for work, and most of that time is on the phone. It would be a big help to have handsfree. Through On-Star maybe?

    2. The interior is clean and beautiful, however I am not always (softball, golf, etc). Does anyone have any good looking rubber floormat recommendations? Obviously I'd like the color to be as close a match as possible.

    3. OnStar. This is my first GM car. Worth it?

    Thanks in advance to any help!!

    No need for onstar in my world withthe many portable devices I have on hand.

    Can't talk to the blutooth options as my 09 and 10 have it.

    Get the isimple module at best buy it gives u Bluetooth phone displays caller Id on navi, USB port, Bluetooth audio, 3.5mm for under 300$ works awesome I have Bluetooth audio, USB flash drive, Bluetooth phone and extra inputs. Do led conversion, change center console lid and u pretty much up to date even better since u will have Bluetooth audio no escalade has it even a new one.

    I have a 08 as well very happy, throw a extended warranty for 100 k miles so u don't have to worry.

    Hi, which iSimple unit do you recommend that will work with the 08 head unit and Android?
