    This should be how all phone-pairing is. Interestingly, I had a similar experience in the rental Equinox I'm driving around in for a couple days. All I had to do on my phone was click "connect" and it was ready to go. I was making a call within seconds. If this is the future, bring it on.

    Just a general comment on the Equinox. Other than decent visibility (for an SUV), bluetooth pairing ease, and a well-damped ride, this vehicle is lousy. Underpowered, inefficient, infuriating transmission (constantly gear hunting, and a nearly eternal pause during shifts followed by a hard engagement of the next gear), and a "hood open" warning every five seconds despite the hood being firmly latched. I know that has nothing to do with the Beetle, but I wanted to follow up.
