Proud new owner, with a totally dumb question about my new vehicle

Hi all.

I took the plunge- bought a 2012 GC Limited with Lux II 5.7 L. Really love this vehicle, and I have to say it has the nicest interior of any car I've owned (which includes Toyota, Acura, among others). At night the lighting is really just beautiful.

I got it in Red, because my local dealer only had the Limited 5.7 L in Red, White, and Black. I was going to try to wait a few months for some the more exotic colors to come out like Winter Chill, Maximum Steel, etc., but I just couldn't wait any longer.

I belong to USAA and got the special deal through them.

Here's my totally dumb question- on the Audio/Nav center screen, on the bottom near the left is a tiny indicator that looks like a battery charge indicator. It was fully charged when I first got the car, now it's 1/3 down. What is this indicator for? What battery is running out of charge and how do I recharge? I'll try looking through the manual, but I thought I'd be lazy first and see if anyone here knew...

Re: Proud new owner, with a totally dumb question about my new vehicle

First, congrats on your purchase.
Second, USAA rocks.
Third, I think you're talking about the phone battery meter - did you pair your phone through Bluetooth?

Re: Proud new owner, with a totally dumb question about my new vehicle

Don't you hate it when you've gotta ask a Dumb question, you know it's dumb but for some reason you can't think of the answer yourself, and when somebody tells you the answer you realise that it was even dumber than you thought... haha
Happens to me all the time

There are no dumb questions on this forum, just frequent sarcastic answers. Congrats.
