iOS5

Has anyone installed iOS5 on an iPhone 4 and noticed if songs being played over blutooth will now show the song titles and data? Some people on another forum I visit have said they now see it in their car (not a WK2)

I have it installed but won't be able to check until tomorrow.

Speaking of this - does anyone else find the quality of sound when streaming from an iPhone over blutooth just isn't that great? I'm wondering if it could be improved at all with an update. The bass doesn't sound as good.

I'm also wondering if you have an iPhone 4S, can you use Siri to reply to text messages or even emails.

I can see it the title tracks also. I find the sound isn't all that great and I have to turn the volume way up.

Re: iOS5

Sorry for the probably dumb question, but does an iPhone's volume setting matter through a Bluetooth connection? I use my iPhone with an AUX input in an older car and the iPhone volume setting matters. Luckily, the iPhone allows different handset and headset jack volume settings. I use the handset at half volume, but when I plug it into the AUX input through the headset jack, it outputs at maximum volume.

Only time your iPhone's set volume matters is with an AUX port. When it comes to USB and Bluetooth streaming, the song's volume output is the only thing that is a factor.

Yes, Siri will read NEW text messages and allow you to reply over bluetooth. It's a great experience while driving.

You will need to use the home button on the phone to activate Siri.

Yes. Once you press the home button and activate Siri it will use your vehicle's speakers and microphone.
