    Angry Download contacts from phone to CUE

    Is the a way to download contacts from a phone to the CUE system so you don't have to wait for CUE to reindex your phone every time you want to make a call? I see how you can manually add contacts to the car contact list, but I can't figure out how to download them from the phone into CUE. in my BMWs I was always able to make a call from my contacts right away because the contacts were actually downloaded into Idrive memory.

    Not being able to use voice commands to make a call after I start the car is pretty frustrating

    Re: Download contacts from phone to CUE

    Welcome to my nightmare.

    I have constantly wait for my contacts to load as well every time I exit/enter the vehicle.

    The only way you may possibly, instantly make a call once in the vehicle, is by selecting contacts from the dash control. Using voice, in most cases, is out of the question.

    Seems like most times the contacts are available to scroll through prior to being able to access via voice. Others may not have the same problem.

    CUE has to cease indexing information and just permanently store it.

    I put a Pioneer stereo/NAV with rear back up in my Avalanche and the phone contacts are automatically stored in the radio's memory. When the phone is synced every time I get in the truck, the contacts are there waiting for the phone to sync. This doesn't seem to be high tech stuff.

    Here's the thing...

    Most any car system will store your phone contacts.

    CUE is the first system, that I know of, that somehow takes the inane approach of reindexing contacts and music.

    I have complained about this endlessly, as have others on this forum. From past conversations with their engineers it doesn't seem like they were interested in changing the mechanics of how everything works, even though there is flash storage capability inside every CUE system.

    I just don't understand why the engineers chose a method of constant reindexing, and why they can't work to do what everyone else has proven to be workable for the past several years.

    The present system is insane, to say the least. There has to be a better way.
