Congrats on your new car tilt!

The iphone issue that you mentioned is something which I guess is more common with cars of all make and it's because of the generic protection that iOS devices carry with. I had never seen the OE HU in my Figo read my iphone when connected to USB and the Sony HU of my friend's swift reading his/my iphone. Also I had heard from fellow Figo owners in our forum quoting that the ipod also behaves same when connected through USB. I had even tried connecting my iphone to a Sony Home theatre system over the USB and it failed to recognise it as a music device. Even when an iPhone is being connected to a PC/Laptop through USB that doesn't has itunes installed - we won't be able to access the music files.

Bluetooth/Phone integration:
This is another example of an half-baked feature added on purely to tick a box. I can receive calls, I can redial the last dialled number, but I cannot call anyone else because the phone-book does not download into the system. I still have to have the phone in my hand and scroll through contacts and click on the contact to call them. This means, it is no longer hands-free; or most importantly - eyes-free! I have to take my eyes off the road to do all this, or park the car on the shoulder.


Turning Radius:
A little too wide for my liking. I feel as though I am driving an 18-wheeler semi whenever I am trying to get into or out of my parking spot. Will take some getting used to. However, it is an issue only when there’s a need to manoeuvre in tight spaces. Does not affect regular driving in any way.


Push-Button Start:
Works as advertised. One question though: what happens if that goes kaput for some reason? How do I start the car with the key? I do not see anywhere to stick a key in and turn the car on.[/quote]

Is there a S/W upgrade possible for the phone-book issue? Since incoming calls show the name of the caller, the phone-book is being read properly. Why can't we access it otherwise? The UK version has a separate button for this. Wonder if this is another case of taking the Indian customer for a gimmicky fool.

I've quoted the other two major complaint I have with this car - the large turning radius has already seen me dent my car in a tight parking lot. I think it's also got to do with the way the car becomes wider towards the back. Never had this problem with Vista - now have to keep an eagle eye on the left ORVM while making tight turns.

The rear camera is a useful addition so that you do not miss a small stump or ditch at the back - esp when it is dark. Also - given the thick C-pillars, I have started using it more often.

Also, is there a way to keep music on and only turn off the ignition?

It's a two-step process. Touching the Start-Stop button kills the engine and everything else, then without depressing the clutch, press the Start-Stop button again, then the ACC mode comes on and you can listen to your radio.

AFAIK there is no way to make it a one-step process. I suppose that's a negative point with push-button start, whereas with the old-fashioned key, you could turn the key to the interim ACC position thereby turning off the engine while leaving your radio on.

Cheers

Yeah that's how I do it now. The music turns off and turns back on again. Quite irritating. One of the rare occasions when I miss the good old ignition key.
