McLaren,
Please do a thorough test before an upgrade. Tried my phone the past 2 days, sounds like crap. Don't rememer it sounding like this when I 1st got the car. Only 1 speaker outputs the callers voice, and higher volumes crackle / distort. Please get this fixed.

When I had the original updates the phone worked brilliantly, following a minor upgrade to fix the Sat-nav(admittedly at my request) the phone is now useless.. crackling and hardly able to hear the caller- I no longer bother to sync the phone when getting into the car.
I admit that it was me who asked them to do the update but you'd of thought considering they make the software for F1 that they could get a phone to work!

I probably won't notice since I never use bluetooth with my phone/car, but it's kind of odd that someone could screw up what is essentially a standard so badly. I feel like even a hobbyist could correctly implement bluetooth.

Maybe this is why Ferrari has an Apple guy on their board and now is putting ipads in cars. Maybe they've wised up to the fact that their engineers just aren't good enough for this stuff and it's cheaper to stick a few hundred dollars worth of off the shelf products in the car that just, well, work. Apple and Samsung spend billions developing these things, so they might as well use them.

$300 tablet >> $5000 OEM headunit. Makes you wonder, no?

Can 10.6 be removed, or can they go back to a previous software version?

Following this, I've emailed my dealer to see if there is a resolve as yet - or if the update can be put back.
I'll post any response I get

Can't play music in 12C with my iPhone. However I have not read the manual. This kind of thing should be intuitive, not a damned computer science project. Prefer the exhaust sound anyway.

I have had my car back to dealer twice due to craziness in the IRIS system. Once the reloaded the software, and this week they replaced one of the IRIS CPU's. Hopefully resolves it.
