    iphone 4 questions

    I am very close to purchasing a 2010 Cadillac SRX Luxury with Navigation. Certainly, I would love the Premium, or a 2011 but the 2010 Lux with Nav falls nicely in my price range.

    I have spent most of the morning reading this forum, specifically on the iphone 4 issues. I am concerned, and confused lol.

    1) I understand that the phone system connects via bluetooth. Can the SRX play from your iphone 4 playlist over Bluetooth as well? (I think the infiniti fx35 can do this). Or do you have to connect your iphone directly. If so, how do you do that? Do you need a usb?

    2) Is it true that if you want to access your music playlists, that the iphone 4 must be in "airplane mode"? Thus, not having access to use the phone as a phone at all?

    3) Is it true that the 2010 SRX can not access your phone book/contact info? But the 2011 SRX can?

    4) Have they issued any software updates for the nav that resolve some/all of these issues, if in fact, they are issues?

    Thanks to anyone who can help me clarify. I will be making my purchase decision within 2 weeks. I really love the SRX, and how much more room it has in the back seats (compared to the FX35) . . but I LIVE with my iphone and I do wish for something that allows me to use my phone via bluetooth, and plays my music from my iphone flawlessly.

    3) Yes, it is true. I have a 2011 SRX and I can access my phone book/contact info. This feature was not available on the 2010.

    Thanks cam30era!

    Too sad, if they have not offered a software update for 2010. I would imagine it's still the same hardware/system.

    Yes, it is a hardware/system change. Can't upgrade a 2010.

    I have a 2011. How do you access the contacts? Does a list show on the nav screen?

    After you have paired your phone via Bluetooth, press the "phone" hard button, just below and to the right of the nav screen. You will see your phone book as one of the choices on the nav screen.

    Yes. I access my playlists in my 2010srx all the time from my iPhone 4. However you can not import your phone contact lists. Instead you must manually add each phone contact to your SRX phone database.

    This is for the 2010 model that doesn't allow downloading the phone's contact list...

    I'm not sure if the iPhone 4 has bluetooth pass through capabilities or not, but if it does, then you can use that to give commands to the phone via bluetooth and save yourself having to input all those contacts. Android phones with FroYo or later can do this. It's documented in the manual.
