Some more info on the Pandora capabilities:

 

There will be a "Pandora Link" app that you will have to put on your iPhone in addition to the actual Pandora app.

This link app sort of acts as a "plug in" for the Pandora App, allowing two way communication through the iPhone dock connector.

 

The app has been submitted to Apple, it's just waiting to be approved for the App Store.

You say the Z120BT is going to have RDS. Is this FULL RDS functionality? ie. will it be able to display radio text or just station name like the Z110BT? Is this also going to be a part of the Z120BT map update for the Z110BT? I can't wait to check out that video on the Z120BT later on. I am stoked now. lol It will be interesting to see if it turns on any quicker than the 110 does not that it is slow at all really. I guess I am just an impatient kind of guy. :lol:

From the demo video, the radio sceen looks exactly the same from an information point. ie. no true RDS. Is there a button to activate more info? The 3d graphics are awesome on that unit. I really do hope that there will indeed be an update for the 110 into a 120 like was mentioned on this site a thousand times and at the end of that video. I am really thinking more all the time about XM Radio too. Really liking the looks of that unit thus far.

I can't wait for the update either, it looks awesome. I noticed though that there was really no mention of the nav features, which I would like to see refreshed as well. That smooth scrolling could be used everywhere, contacts, POI searches, etc.

I feel it will. I believe you and everyone else I have heard it from. I just want to make sure it has everything tho. There is alot to upgrade there it seems. He did indicate possible price tho as you said and it was a little on the steep side even if it still would be a great deal. I will be a most definite adopter there. I can't wait! :D

I bought the X920BT I wanted to know the difference between the Navigation of the new Z120BT & the X920BT. Because if there is not a difference in the Navigation then its almost identical to the X920BT with a bigger touch screen and higher resolution. Hope to get some answers thanx
