I installed the u310bt in my wife's Saturn Vue. I have updated the firmware to 1.0003 I used the garmin microphone that was recommended here in the forum. One thing I did that was a risk, I attached the GPS antenna onto the center crossbar about one inch below the plastic dashboard, It picks up the signals perfectly so far and keeps the antenna hidden under the dash!

One issue is the glare on the screen during daylight hours gets annoying. I was wondering if there was an anti glare film that could be attached to the screen? Has anyone done anything to help with the glare? The ipod interface is a bit non-intuitive I just told my wife to use the ipod controls to navigate the songs.

Having a little trouble connecting with her Samsung impression. My iphone it had no problem at all but her impression is not working correctly but I did not mess with it so It may just be a matter of a wrong setting.

Sounds great! I was thinking of upgrading the speakers but the HU make s the speakers sound so much better I do not think I need to upgrade just now.

Any suggestions on the bluetooth connection to the impression or tip with the ipod interface would be helpful.

I'm thinking of fabricating a glare shield - possibly inserting it into the CD slot.

Hmm interesting thought on the glare screen wish there was one taht would stick to the screen like on a cell phone. BTW the Samsung impression is working now my wife turned the car off then back on again and now it seems to be working fine.

I think if it still acts up I will erase my iphone from it but so far all seems to be working.
