    It could be that they improved on the 2007 model....Mine doesn't recognize half of the commands....I Would hope for an $80K car that it does work....Does yours recognize 100% of the voice commands?

    I have not tried 100% of the voice commands, but still you seem to be saying the entire unit is crap because it may not recognize a few voice commands? Voice command is one of the hardest things to get right since everyones voice is different.

    I will tell you that the CTS guys would DIE for our bluetooth and nav system and you think is sucks. To each his own. Again, mine works great and I have no complaints.

    I agree! While it doesn't work as well as I'd like (especially at highway speeds), it is better than what I had in the CTS-V (nothing).

    I guess it just depends on your expectations. I think a lot of people wouldn't mind as much about VC not working well if the NAV and BT functions weren't locked out while driving. Even if it recognized every command first time, it would still be faster to use the touch screen and you wouldn't have your music interrupted every time.

    Hopefully Coastal Tech will work out the gliches in their device so we can get the NAV/BT functions unlocked:

    They lock the nav and BT buttons for a reason and I don't expect Cadillac will EVER unlock them. Too much liability on their part and I really can't blame them. I have seen so many ridiculous law suits out there that companies now have to protect people from their own stupidity. This is just one example of such.

    Most may disagree with me on this but I would be happy if they had just implemented the BlueTooth Voice Response part of the spec so that I could use the voice commands on my Motorola RAZR. THAT is really the only thing I find annoying. Watching a DVD while driving is dangerous, distracting, and irresponsible. Even talking on the phone should be limited.

    Re: Improvements for '08 STS?

    Cadillac is going to have to do something for the '08 Northstar STS. The new Direct Injection V6 in the '08 CTS puts out 300 HP to our Northstar's 320 HP. The '08 CTS will weigh 400-500 lbs less than the STS and, with the DI motor, will be able to run rings around the STS. Likewise, the DI V6 will likely be offered in the STS, so that the V6 STS will have only a 20 HP disadvantage to the Northstar STS. UNLESS the Northstar gets DI too, in which case 375 HP is possible. ("375" does have a nice ring to it.) If the rear suspension and the rest of the drive train are not up to 375 HP, then selected V components could be fitted. And then there is the tantalizing prospect of DI in the STS-V. Pressurized motors benefit even more from Direct Injection than do atmospheric motors. How does 550 HP sound?
