Thus far, I really like the Cube. I'd driven in about 30 miles today, mostly city. It's very comfortable.

By the way, I just gave a plug to BeanGarage.com on Yarisworld.com. ;D
Welcome Thirty-nine! Can't wait to read your review. From everything I've read the Kia is hard to beat.

Sweet!! Thank you sir, it is appreciated! If only there were more aftermarket parts for the Cube then I'd have a real site going here.... :p

The Bluetooth does have a learning curve to it and it didn't do the contact transfer for me either. I had to put in every one manually. The Bluetooth really does sound amazing though and is clearer and quieter than when I used to use my headset.

I also found the iPod function on the stereo to be difficult to figure out but once I figured it out the only bad thing was scrolling through all those damn artists to get to the one I wanted. I also wish the stereo read out wasn't single line info too.

I agree, the iPod thing is very difficult. My 15 year old seemed to get it right away, though. Maybe the targeted demographic for the cube will not find this to be a problem (unlike us 40-somethings).

I had an Infiniti with Bluetooth when Nissan first started doing it, and it sucked bigtime :( Glad to hear they improved the quality.

I cannot stand this! You would think the scroll wheel would be used to scroll, or jump 20 at a time (or something). They lock me out of my iPhone's interface... I am forced to unplug, then do my searching on the little screen, then plug back in. Not conducive to safe driving!!!

Do you guys think it's an iPod issue or a Nissan issue? javascript:void(0); wonder if Apple could fix it with a new version

In my experience, it's Nissan. I had iPod connectivity in my last car... and full control from both the head unit & the iPhone itself. That was the way it should be!

So, the quality of the Bluetooth isn't bad. However, I find the Bluetooh frustrating to use. It seems to have a hard time hearing me, even if I'm being loud. It seems kinda odd that the mic is right above my head, too.

I did find out that you need to load up people's names in the system before it will recognize phone book names.

I also agree with the iPod interface. I don't have much to compare it to, though. I haven't used many others that interface with the stereo itself.

The stereo does sound really good, though! My test unit came with satellite. ;D

and that's reason #1 why we modify. LOL To make our stereos work for us.
