If I have no interest in iphone integration, usb, mp3s-on-usb-stick, or even pandora integration, how bad is it really ? Is it going to drive me crazy owning the car ? I basically use my phone for in-car audio exclusively, so its kind of important to me.
Other question - is there any noticable lag in the bluetooth streaming audio ? I own a Honda CRV, and for unknown reasons, the BT adds about 5s delay to audio streaming. Hit pause, wait 5s for audio to actually stop. Want to seek to find where you were up to in a multi-hour podcast ? Ha! Out of luck, wait 5s after every skip to see where it ends up.
The infotainment shouldn't be a deal breaker if you love the car in every other way. That being said, I'm not you and you're not me, so hate the car for whatever reason you like
My infotainment works pretty darn well, to be honest. Could it work MUCH better? Of course. It works very well for a 2004 infotainment system, not a 2014 one.
Bluetooth audio streaming works perfectly for me except that if I want to shuffle my songs, the ONLY way that it lets me do this is if I begin playing songs then use the voice command "Shuffle All." If I receive a phone call while in this mode, I have to reset it. Other than that, it works perfectly. There's minor lag in song changes (maybe 2 seconds), and there's about a 30-45 second delay when first turning the car on before it connects to the phone.
Other than that, my Pandora works perfect whenever I need it, or my regular music or iTunes Radio works just as well, and everything else works just fine except the text messages (which I don't care about anyways).
I've stopped using TomTom's navigation for my primary means of travel, and merely use it as a backup in case my phone loses connection. TomTom's navigation is garbage.
Overall though, I'd never let it be a deal breaker for me if I loved the car otherwise.
Hope this helps
