    Re: iPad Questions: Am I the Only One?

    (New on the forum; first post) What if I already have an iPad--I can download these apps, certainly, but the question is am I missing anything because I don't have Cadillac account numbers or On Star ID? My XTS comes in next week, I think.

    You should get the numbers from your dealer or, if you are like me, you will be able to call OnStar for the info. The only thing missing on your downloads will be the downloaded manual on the Adobe app. In order to update anything on the Cadillac iPad, you have to erase and start fresh anyway - see earlier forum threads. I haven't figured out how to download the manual. It doesn't really matter. You will get the new iPad regardless and it has a note that if you have one and would like to donate the Cadillac iPad, they tell you how.

    Re: iPad Questions: Am I the Only One?

    Regarding the iPad you receive with the XTS--can you get cellular service with it, and if so can you chose the service (AT&T, Verizon, Sprint) or is there no choice?

    I've heard that the iPad you get with an XTS does not have cellular service.

    It has the app to pair your phone. It would not pair my Android (Sprint) Phone.

    Well, Cadillac tell me the Canadian customers will not receive an iPad. We just seem to have to pay more for less and have to wait 5 months (or longer - ordered an XTS Platinum Aug 31 now overdue with a now advised "tentative" production date of the week of Jan 7) to get it, even though the car is assembled in Canada. LOL.

    What reason did they give for not handing over an iPad to you? Wait a second...do they think that you Canadians are smarter than Americans???

    Re: iPad Questions: Am I the Only One?

    The following is a "cut & paste" from the e-mail I received when asking what version of iPad comes with the XTS Platinum.

    General Motors of Canada Limited is not at this time promoting an IPad 3 with the purchase of a new XTS Platinum vehicle.

    Nothing about reason. I guess given some US customers complain about using an iPad, they think Canadian are not smart enough to even try. LOL. And here I thought I had a nice x-mas gift for my wife, having already a 64 GB iPad3 for myself. Well we are Canadians and that's why we pay more for a car (even if produced in Canada (less than 100km from where I live and we have to wait months to get one - ordered mine on Aug 30th and now have a "tentative" production date of Jan 7/13) or anything else for that matter, even though the $ is basically at par for over a year. Just look at the price for recently printed books. End of rant.

    I wonder who is more frustrated: the one who placed an order for an XTS on 8/30 or those who have to read the same complaint in every thread...
    EChas3 and EChas3 like this.

    Don't worry about it, CDN XTS. We all get frustrated and need to vent every now and then.
