iPhone 4S and Siri all work with BT!!

Just picked up my iPhone 4S this weekend. Siri is really cool and works better than expected. Apple really does a great job with QA before releasing to the public. I was wondering the whole time if it would be available through the bluetooth in the car, so on the way home today I tried it out.

I am pleased to say it works through the bluetooth, well with the 730N anyways. As soon as you hit the home button Siri comes through the car speakers and will dial, talk, text, read text messages and email........I can just scrape the Uconnect now all together. The only thing you can't do it activate Siri from the steering wheel button and it shows on the screen as if you are calling voicemail, but it WORKS!!

Siri also works the same way with my 430n.

Siri works so much better than Uconnect. It is so much easier to make a call than having to confirm 3 times that you want to call that person.

Also sending emails while driving is awesome.

I hope they license Siri like Micro$oft did with SYNC. It works so well.

Now we just need someone to figure out how to activate it by pressing a button on the steering wheel.

+1 that would be awesome! I am still ecstatic that it works through BT.

Yes, you can use the mic in the cabin to operate Siri.

Only issue I have with Siri is the Headunit treats it like a phone call and makes the sound notifying my phone call is ended every time Siri is done.
