Found this site and signed up, looks to be a wealth of helpful information out there. Pick up my new (to me) 04 XLR tommorow. Not sure how much sleep I will get, feel like a kid waiting for Xmas.
Thank you, she is home and in the garage. What a ride home, sunny, plus 10 C or about 55F with the top down. About an hour and a half ride home, mostly at 60 -65 Mph, ya right. Smooth ride, lots of power. Now to spend a couple of days playing with the gagets, reading the manual,and of course a trip or two. Should have worn a hat, or put some lotion on the old chrome dome, just a little red. Small price to pay. When you turn your car on does it return the favour, YOU BET!!!!!!!!! Thank you for invites, no promises for this year, but we will keep them in mind. Now I can sleep.
BoBo, are you telling me you can talk to the Nav and it will listen? Wow looks like I do have a steep learning curve ahead of me. Just amazing, at least I will not be bored this Thanksgiving weekend.
My '09 Ford Expedition has the Microsoft InSnyc software runing the voice commands for Music, phone, navigation Etc. is way better than what's in our XLR's. It's sad that none of this can be upgraded in our cars--I get email from Ford all the time advising of an update which I download on a memory stick and then load into the vehicle (USB port ib console) Pretty neat!!
Yes, and it talks back to you. Your steering wheel has a button that you press and then say a command, not only for the nav but for the radio and many other features. Dive into those books that came with the car, your in for a shock.
See I knew there would be help on this site, it is Easter not Thanksgiving, I have a car that talks. It will be a busy weekend, while I'm waiting for the polish to dry I can start reading.
One other question, my hood lift supports are getting weak, and I would like to replace them. Are there after market ones or do I need to go to GM?
