    Wow, when setting up the Bluetooth, the tutorial voice is super loud! No way to turn it down either. Then when talking the person's voice seems to fade in/out. Then it won't let me access the phone book, keeps saying the phone book is empty. I have an iPhone 4.

    Are others having good luck with theirs? I'm not sure if I like it or not. Or have I not set it up right?

    Mine is a 2010 with JBL/Bluetooth and it does not stream audio. I don't believe they made changes for the 2011.

    Unfortunately the built in bluetooth doesn't access the phonebook stored in the phone.
    Annoying I know, considering my $20 POS bluetooth headset can do this.

    What you have to do is program each person you want to call into the Headunit and it seems to do a voice recognition on the recording of the name you gave it. Kind of annoying but once you get it all set up it works fairly well.

    I have not had any real problems with my phone and the BT in my truck. The minor inconvenience that I have encountered is that sometimes it will have some difficulty pairing with my phone and I will have to power cycle my phone. This was a problem with my old headset too so its not that big of a deal. Agreed that no access to the phone book on your phone is frustrating but its much better once fully set up.
