You know how the turning ignition key (what an ancient name) to 'start' powers off the Nav, I guess to simulate ICE proceedure, well is there more to it that upsets the Nav ?

Seems there is a brain transplant as well as geographical re-indoctrination on the eclipse site. I'll wait for someone else to try it though. Image

Just found out after 2 years that the cable in the glovebox is an iPhone/Pod connector.

charges and communicates properly with the stereo

I was using bluetooth audio before and powering the iPhone via the 12VDC socket.

only thing is that if you connect the iPhone when the stereo is turned on, it swaps to the iPhone input
this is what happens in the volt
I guess that it assumes that one wants to play some tunes.

the volt doesn't have bluetooth audio streaming.

another sat nav error:
sat nav says to turn right into Northside Nissan from Wanneroo Rd heading north, but there is no opening in the median strip.
