Just over here in the 11 section reading your guys post, and I couldn't agree with you more..I had 2 GT's with the 500 system and this 1000 system I have now blows that sh it away..sounds amazing over the 500...Well said!!!
Oh and if you can't lower your air conditioning manually without risking an accident you shouldn't be driving in the first place:hihi:
Someone didn't get the memo....... Um, that is why the buttons are still there. Driving through St. Louis and a severe thunderstorm pops up - that may be the time you use voice activated controls (don't want to experience that again). Not the reason to get the system just an added benefit. I saw the next generation Sync system and have to take some training for it; it will blow you mind - unbelievable.
