    I like that there is no start button, but they should have an "On/Off" button on the fob itself!

    That doesn't keep the car accessories on (12V plug).

    I dont like it either, i like to clean my car, wash, baby it, etc., and i used to have tunes. Now nada. You should be able to turn it up, or have the setting to "dim" the sound.

    I also want this "misfeature" turned off. It's super annoying. I generally have to pause the music, open the door, turn the music back up, and then leave the door open...

    I thought it was pretty cool. Often when I open the door I want to talk to someone and it's nice that I don't have to fiddle with the volume.

    Clearly an option is best. Once we get too many options we will need a "finder"

    I like the feature, but I understand scenarios when it would not be desirable. Having an option would indeed be the best way ahead.

    A couple of questions about the music though - when I am leaving the car with passengers inside, is there a way to continue playing the music?

    Also, is there a way to automatically increase the volume with increasing speed (and ambient noise)? I know some other cars have this feature, and I believe it will be useful to EVERYONE.

    When you depart the car your passenger or any other occupant can simply touch the touch-screen and everything stays up and running. The ambient noise auto volume increase has been discussed before as a "wished for" item.

    Ah, I see. That's cool. Does the passenger needs to keep touching the screen intermittently to have the music going, or just touching once is enough?
    [Sorry, it is impossible to test it myself within the next few days, so I figured I rather ask.]

    It stays until the passenger gets out as far as I know. I have not ever left my passenger long enough to know for sure.
