I don't mind connecting it that way, I guess what I'm trying to get at is so I don't have to look at my phone.. So I can control the playlist and songs from the stereo. I know I can skip from track to track but it doesn't tell me name of song or let me scroll through the playlist and let me select which song I want to play does it?
So an update on that ntrddragn... I can't connect my phone via Bluetooth for audio... I'm starting to wonder why they don't put any of these features on the armada? Even the versa has this stuff. I could have bought 5 versa lol
I agree with you, 2012Platinum. I keep finding little things like this and it's frustrating. Especially when the dealer keeps telling me this is the top of the line Nissan product.
Another disappointment is that the bluetooth phonebook in the Armada will only hold 40 contacts, and it does not download them automatically. It looks like you have to put them in one at a time. The steering wheel controls are odd and archaic, too. No scan on the steering wheel, only seek? Really? My 03 Yukon has that. And the scan button is way over on the passenger side of the vehicle! Not a well thought out vehicle in some ways.
I'm sure we'll get over all of the quirks, but some of it is just surprising given the Platinum is suppose to be loaded.
