OK, after several months I've found the first thing I seriously DISLIKE about my Brides' new Prius v. I finally got around to entering (or trying to enter) phone contacts in her car. We don't have a bazillion people we regularly want or need to speak to while in the car, nor do we feel the need to purchase $500+ iThingies for normal phone calls. In my 2008 Gen II, it took all of 15 minutes to manually enter the names and numbers of family and (close) friends into the Bluetooth phone book. There apparently is no such option in the new car (I say this after an hour or so of head scratching over the Owner's Manual and control panel, and a search of these forums and Google). Why? Why in the name of God would such a simple function be simply deleted from the software? Sure, she can receive calls (which she says is all she really wants) but why should she have to pull off the road to dial on her handset if she decides she DOES want to place a call from her brand new $28,000 technobile? Has anyone found a viable workaround? I know some women would be thrilled if Hubby ran out and bought them a new iThingie just so he could do this for her, but my Bride would most decidedly NOT be, nor would I.
