    I agree!

    There are really no big issues with the new CUE. I only had a small connectivity problem while using voice phone commands with my iPhone that was corrected with the latest CUE update. BTW: There will always be new updates down the road for any high tech equipment you own.

    I would not hesitate to buy the 2013 or 2014 SRX... just do what you feel is best for your particular situation.

    Marc/cadillac 31, slightly off topic questions for you....

    Do you use an SD card to store music and if you do any issues with playback? Just curious because evrytime I start the vehicle, it takes about 30 seconds to play the song that was on in the previous ignition cycle. Even then it does not play the song continuously - pauses 10-15 seconds after playing a small part and then pauses again. This interrupted play pattern goes on for about 3-4 times before the normal playing resumes. I picked up my SRX a week and half ago and it came with the March update from factory with Software/Gracenote/Map versions 23150273/22993544/23152950 respectively.

    I also have another issue with disappering vehicle contacts and they misteriously reapper when I change contact list to BT connected iPhone 5 and then back to vehicle.

    Thanks!

    2014 is a much luckier number than 2013. Everyone knows 13 is an unlucky number so I would wait and buy a 2014 model, everyone knows 14 is a lucky number.

    Sorry I have never tried using a SD card so I can't comment on that topic. As far as losing my vehicle contacts from my iPhone 5 I don't ever recall having any issues with losing any of my contacts either.

    can wait until the end of the year and look at the 14's. The longer I have to save, the less I'll have to finance. What scares me though is I heard a rumor that the SRX will be replaced with a smaller platform vehicle (CUV vs SUV.). If that's the case, I'm ordering the 13!! Has anyone heard what's coming for 2014? Thanks!

    There is no real reason to wait for a 2014 if you are concerned about the CUE and updates. Just think of your computer that gets Microsoft windows updates periodically. If the CUE gets updated again later on in the future it would be exactly the same version that would be out by 2014 MY. I would bet that there will be more updates in 2015 and beyond too ... for we all know programmers are constantly looking for newer enhancements and even more features and GM will wait for the appropriate time(s) to release those future updates.

    That is whats so great about having a system that can take upgrades and not become extinct soon after you buy it. My CUE got it's first update and it has the newer enhancements and is even better than ever!

    Just talked to my salesman about a 2014 SRX and he says as far as he knows they should start ordering them around early June and production would be starting up around the middle to end of July thus the SRXs should hit the dealers lots in early to mid August.

    Wait until the 2013's go on clearance in the winter and get one for mega $$$$ off sticker. Also, the GM card always sends out top off offers around this time, too, if you have one.

    So what do you do if they decide to "update" the CUE hardware? You're not going to get the faster processor because it won't be considered a "flaw" by GM.

    Re: SRX Order 2013 or wait for 2014?

    steve,

    did you know that CUE's hardware is based off of a 3-core ARM11 processor that isn't being fully utilized yet ?

    GM/Cadillac knew that they would need more processing power in years to come than the system initially would need so they left themselves room to grow

    i think they unlocked a bit of that extra power in this first update since many people are saying that the system is much more responsive after getting their update

    there will come a point when the hardware will be upgraded but that will probably be with the next generation of bodystyles (which is years down the road)
    and even then the first generation CUE systems will still be pretty powerful

    Steve's not going to buy one. He's just trying to cause trouble, as always. He doesn't like American cars remember? By using his logic, you would never buy Anything new, cars, computers, TV's, etc, because they might become outdated.
