    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!!

    Weather tech mats

    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?
