    Great episode so far!

    I totally agree with Danny and Russell on the Entune system. The fact iPhones cannot tether and there are so many people who would not be interested in tethering their cell phone and data plan to the car, makes this a horrible option IMO.

    Requiring a tethered phone is a really bad decision.
