Anyone else have this problem? Ill get a bluetooth call, and when I click the green answer button to accept, it connects the call and doesnt mute the radio, or allow me to turn the volume down on the radio!

This is usually due to the STS Bluetooth not getting the mute instruction from the phone. It can be a metter of timing. Have you tried answering the phone by pressing the VR button on the steering wheel? I find it easier and it may change the timing of communications between the car & phone.

The Nav firmware upgrade is well worth doing. I'm convinced the Bluetooth, VR & Nav system work better.

You know, I had begun to suspect that it is a timing thing as well. One thing I have noticed is that instead of simply tapping the green "answer" button when receiving a call, if I press and hold it for a couple of seconds I seem to avoid the "failure to mute" issue almost every time.

I'm not sure if this is really true as I have not done any formal experiments, but it seems to work for me.

I have the NAV upgrade, using an iPhone with 2.2.1 software, and I still have the problem, but only occasionally. That occasion is usually when i get an important call while listening to the radio at a loud volume. How frustrating!!

Also, I cannot recreate the problem while sitting in my driveway and utilizing two phones. It will mute everytime. So I tried programming a destination and sitting in my driveway, thinking I will be taxing the computing system more. It still would mute every time.

Giving up, I head out the next morning, and it fails to mute the first call!! Using steering wheel button vs. touch screen doesn't seem to matter to me.

I will try to "hold" the green button next time and see if that has any affect.

Anyone else have a suggestion?

This drives me crazy.

Yeah, using the voice command button on the steering wheel, and "holding" the green button does nothing for me either. Its always when I have an important call and my music up as well! Ill be taking it in for the nav upgrade in a month or so.

I find that waiting for the phone to ring twice allows the phone and car to be fully engaged. When I have this problem I've noticed that I answer the phone as soon as I heard it ring.
