A few comments
- I don't have it set to any phone numbers because I can dial by name using voice command
- I don't have iPhone media because I can use the media button
- I don't use radio much anymore due to the low XM sound quality but I used to have Google Search set as Presets on my previous car

Stealth: Facebook? Really?


Mine:

1 - VoIP local access number
2- A Phone number entry from the address book
3- Nav: Home
4- TMPS
5- Oil Level
6- Music Collection (iPod which lives in the arm rest storage compartment and is plugged into the USB port)
7- Sat Radio Presets
8- Split screen on/off



To the ones dedicating a button to the day/ night nav screen mode: there is a setting to have it switch on/ off automatically.

And the ones dedicating buttons to specific scales: buttons are faster, true but I use the voice commands to zoom the nav map in/ out and it works quite well.

Nav - home is a waste. Press voice command and just say "home address". Very quick.

That's good. Thank you.

So my 2, 4 and 5 could be replaced with something more useful/ difficult to get to manually or via voice.

I'll look.

Uncle Jack.

I started watching this last season again from the beginning. Keep in mind I watched every episode 2-3 times during the week after it aired. I think I will still be watching it in 20 years.

Hit your controller left and scroll to highlight the station you want to assign. Don't press the controller down. Now press and hold the 1-8 button you'd like to use until you hear a sound confirmation.

What is highlighted with the controller is what gets stored.
