can always go with a trunk rack but would rather not
The v600 has been good to me. The first Bluetooth accessory I bought was the Motorola wireless headset. That worked well, but was pretty much made moot by the second accessory, the TL.
I bought the body side mouldings because I think they are necessary protection and they look good. ($235 installed by dealer)
Also got the splash guards which are O.K. but not needed unless you are in a lot of snow or mud. Since my car is red they are hardly noticeable, but I think I would pass on a light colored car.
SonyEricsson T610 - Works fine, showing battery and signal strength
SonyEricsson Z600 - same as above
SonyEricsson p900 - not working at all.
Nokia 6800 - works, not showing signal strength or battery life on car display.
SonyEricsson p910i - works, but has to be manually activated from the phone every time you use it.
Palmone Treo 650 - works, no signal or battery info.
I'm supposed to receive Nokia 9500 communicator in a few days - will update you if it works.
There is a list of compatible phones on Acura TL site , you will need to do some digging to find it.
In SoCal I paid about $1000 for the installed kit.
IF you have a bluetooth phone that's compatible with the TL, your bluetooth experience will be phenomenal. I can only compare the quality of the TL to that of the Lexus RX serious. TL blows Lexus out of the water. In the TL the sound quality is phenomenal!!!!
Make sure your phone is compatable. I own a Treo650 by Palmone and have had numerous compatability issues. I'd love comments on fixing this issue.
I do know and do have one. Unfortunately, it's not cheap. The Treo650 costs about $600. You will not get any purchase incentives because you are already a spring customer. It is a more sophisticated version of the Blackberry. But I caution you...the treo 650 has compatability issues with the TL..at least mine has.
I have a great Bluetooth enabled PDA phone. It's the Treo650 by PalmOne. However, I have experienced compatability issues with the TL's Bluetooth interface. So, proceed with caution.
The Blackberry is on Acura's list of approved Bluetooth phones.
Thanks for the heads-up.
Going to "plus one"(235/40 18) would look GREAT!....the trade off would be a stiffer and louder ride. So it's LOOKS or comfort you need to decide on or you can just stay with original size. Hope that helps you. BTW the A-spec TL uses the 18"s.
I followed the directions and now have my 650 paired with my 04' TL and love it! This patch allows the pair to persist even after the ignition is turned off. Works like a charm!
I guess I'm inclined to stay with Acura's 17 inch wheel...since 18 inch tires will be quite a bit more expensive and a reoccuring expense. And I don't really want a stiffer ride. If I find that I'm autocrossing/racing more than I expect, then I'll bite that bullet and deal with the larger tire/wheel combo ... but I doubt this will occur as presently I use my 92 300zx. I've pretty well decided for the TL to get another set of 17 x 8s and run snow tires Nov-March for a more secure ride.
I'm curious if anybody knows how and if it is possible to hook up an iPod to the head unit of an 05 TL. I assume it would go in the back of the head unit into the cd changer port, if there is one. I would love to hear from somebody who has done this as well.
Denison makes a good looking product that claims to show the song info on the display as well as steering wheel controls. http://www.dension.com/icelink_info.htm. It looks like the best, yet there is ipod2car by peripheral as well, http://peripheralelectronics.com/ipod2car/index.shtml
Thanks for help, I don't know if it is possible yet and of course which one to go with.
My 2002 Acura TL-S, Silver, will be stored outside, right next to Boston Harbor for the next 5-6 months.
I would very much like to get some ideas as to what I should be looking at regarding a car cover.
Thanks for any help anyone might be able to provide.
I immediately removed the holder once I got it home Sat.
Now I have two centered 3/4 inch cicumference holes which does not look good. Would the dealer have the plugs that might have been once there before arrival to the dealers?
I can always find a solution, however....
Does anyone know
Thanks..Love my TL
I called one dealer (not mine) yesterday, they wanted $28. each. pathetic bunch.
I will call my salesman today and see about that. Had I known of these holes when I picked up my car Friday, I would have left with them in my pocket. My wife's 2005 Accord front holder is bolted under the air vent, therefore, no holes in the front fascia.
and life goes on.....with my TL.......
