Wife wants Bluetooth on her 07. What's the fastest, easiest, and has full function for an iphone? I have seen the threads and read most but curious to hear from everyone and see what's best.

Does it use the factory steering wheel controls? Easy install?

Yes I can change tracks on my iPod and I can also answer and hang up with my steering wheel

I seen it for 119.00 online or you can get at bestbuy for 250 I did the bestbuy way because I wanted to try before ordering but I said screw it and left it and gave bestbuy 120$ but I am so happy that it does not matter, I got my Itouch plugged it always, my phone when I get in my car also bluetooth audio and my music from my phone also there is a 3.5mm for my guests that ride with me. Also there is another jack that you can add a 2nd aux another ipod or HD radio which I dont care for I am content maybe I would try the HD radio but its probably not worth it

when you hang up the call dont use the steering wheel or it will leave the radio in bluetooth mode if you wait to the other party hangs up or you press end on the phone the radio will be on the station you left off on. Install the mic on the control panel where the sunroof controls are this is the best for the mic I dont know if the mic it came with it was defective but I had bad talk quailty so I used my motorola 3.5 mic and it works beautiful. You can get one for 10$ anywhere. Try first maybe mine original was defective, install the usb port in the middle console so you can leave a flash drive hard drive like the 2010 and ups do, I leave my IPOD connected all the time and when I want to switch by steering wheel my source my music is available, also if you use pandora you can see the name displayed on your radio and you can skip up pretty cool also if your in bluetooth mode you can play your music wirelessly to your radio and it will show the name. I dont need the 2015 escalade because I can do the same stuff in mines. I changed my radio in my 08 to a 09 because I have nav traffic now pretty cool the 09 radio is the best because the 10 and up no tilt screen 12 and up no cd dvd changer or tilt. So it got cheaper for cadillac to make because they delete Tilt Screen and Changer.
When I get a call the radio goes to bluetooth and displays number works pretty much like stock.
