I got a new ford with the "sync" system. seamlessly integrates with my cellphone with voice control of functions.

when I plug in my Ipod a little Ford logo shows on the Ipod screen and all functions are controllable with the cars steering wheel buttons. (probably also by voice but I haven't gotten that far yet.)

nice system and voice control would be a huge benefit on a bike.

Honda; why haven't you done this already? you don't even have to invent it.

This, by the way, would be substantially superior to what BM W put on their new 1600.

The sync system works good but I've had lots of trouble with the voice command in my truck! I tell it to call Kenny and it will try to call Jay and other things like that!
