    Bluetooth phone w/PTT

    So should I assume this means that PTT & hands free BT on the CX-9 is a mythological beast?

    Bluetooth phone w/PTT

    Does anyone know of a way to use Push to Talk (PTT) with the handsfree bluetooth phone feature? My wife has a Nextel phone. I was all proud when I set up her phone for handsfree use, but she says she never uses it, because most of her calls are radio calls using the push to talk walkie-talkie...

    CD/MP3 changer

    Isn't there a sub-woofer in the trunk under the floor (opposite side from the Nav)?

    Which Phones have you been able to connect to the CX-9 via Bluetooth?

    Nextel 7100i Blackberry works. Sure, it's sort of lame. But at least it shows anyone having trouble that the odds are it's user error.

    What fuel grade?

    I just re-read that page in the manual (duh!). The page says that the manual originally said to use 91, but that you only have to use Unleaded Fuel. Sounds like the marketing team lynched the engineering team and rewrote the playbook.

    What fuel grade?

    When we picked up my wife's CX-9, the dealership told us to use 87 fuel. In our owner's manual there was a loose page recommending 91. I couldn't tell if that page even belonged in there. What grade does everyone else use?

    iPod: What do I need?

    Remember, we're talking about my wife's vehicle. It's taken too long to train her on the iPod. There's no way I'm going to teach her how to burn MP3 CDs (especially not when all she uses is iTunes on her Mac). Nope, she needs a solution that's as close to turn-key as possible. I liked the...

    iPod: What do I need?

    Hmmm. Neither solution sounds all that great. What's the installation like for the Mazda kit. Isn't it just a cable?

    iPod: What do I need?

    By the way, just wanted to say that I did read through the posts here already and was more confused then before I read them. I posted a new thread because I'm only trying to get the iPod to work (not iPod + Sat). TIA

    iPod: What do I need?

    My wife just bought a new '08 CX-9 GT and wants to plug in her iPod. She bought an AUX cable from Radio Shack to connect from the earphone jack on the iPod to the AUX port in her car. This seems pretty un-handsfree to me. I thought there would be a way for her to doc the iPod and have it...

    Any hacks to play DVDs on nav screen?

    I'm anxious to hear more about some of these kits. Do they adapt the nav DVD hardware, or do they supply RCA inputs for you to connect your own external player?

    Any hacks to play DVDs on nav screen?

    My wife is shopping for a CX-9 and wants to have the ability to play movies on the in-dash nav screen. (She wants to be entertained while I drive her on long trips.) I assume the nav hardware has a DVD reader for the nav data, so the hardware should be there. Has anyone successfully hacked...
