Sounds like the same functionality as in wifey's ML though it looks like 
it would take a semester class to learn how to use it.  I think she 
tried and gave up.

Got the parts in today and got everything installed and working.  Voice

minutes to do.  The rest of the time was spent playing with the voice control 
and phone.

Sweet.

Tomorrow morning while the engine is stone cold I’ll be replacing the spark 
plugs.  Snagged a $20 HF 3/8” air ratchet to spin them out with, using a 25% 
off coupon to make the final price a little over $16.  Can’t argue with that.

Time to hit the shower and then study the telematics manual to learn more about 
the phone stuff.

The documentation for my S430, including Owner’s manual, COMAND manual, and 
Voice Control totals over 1,000 pages of text and diagrams.  The COMAND manual 
is over 400 pages alone.

Thank goodness I like documentation.  Made for some good reading.

How the typical consumer operated this stuff I’ll never understand.  I have to 
believe that about 85% of the features are never used.

Taking a break from swapping spark plugs.  Ugh. 75% humidity and high 80s.  
It’s already rained twice this morning.  How I wish for an air conditioned 
garage….

When a 72 year old friend of mine was buying a new car and wanted to bluetooth
it to a phone, I got him a BT compatible phone and he made the Nissan dealer set
it all up as part of the purchase deal. 
He loves it. He tells the car's communications center to call somebody, and it
mutes the radio and puts the call on the radio speakers. I believe it also
displays the number called on the navigation screen. 

Mitch.

THat's nice weather for the south in  summer. 
humidity here is generally in the 80 to 99% range 
in summer.  with temps in the high 80s and 90s 
and some time over 100.  60% is exceedingly low 
for summer.  That is why I laughed at the 
Varithane tech rep a few years ago.  He told me 
not to put it on under 70º  OR over 20% RH.  I 
told him they obviously would not sell varithane 
in most of the continent then.

That’s why I chuckle when people talk about the “heat and humidity” here in 
Florida.

Where I grew up in the Midwest it was not uncommon to have it be 90F and 
80%-100% humidity. Goshawful weather to work outside in, and far worse than it 
is here.  The only difference is that we just have the heat for a longer time 
than they do.
