"most everyone I call with my cellphone working with the bluetooth say they can't hear me properly / words are broken, etc.. I have pretty much stopped using the Murano bluetooth and my cellphone. Had this issue before the TSB update and continue to have it. I have wondered if others with the 2011 have had the same issue? Cellphone or Murano bluetooth is the villian?"
I have been having the exact same issue in my 2011 SL w/Nav/BT, and after discussing with my car audio specialist, he claims that the BT version in the 2011's is v1.7, whereas BT is 'supposedly' out with v2.8 now, and coming with v3.0 in early 2014. He says that the differences between v1.7 and 2.8 are ridiculous ( as in tremendous), and that the leap into quality jumps even light years beyond that when you move from v2.8 to v3.0. And he specifically states that the voice quality of the calls is directly affected by these upgrades, along with numerous other qualities like suppressed background noise due to ANR, choppiness and cutouts, etc. He claims that the microphone isn't the problem at all , something I had originally begun thinking of replacing. The number of complaints I get from business clients with whom I speak while driving is unacceptable. Does anyone know more in-depth information on this particular subject that they'd be willing to share here? And if/when I bring the vehicle to the dealership, will they know enough to determine which version of BT I have in my 2011, and how to bring the software updates into being ( assuming there are some?). While I love the Murano, I have been to 4 different dealerships to discuss these specific issues with their maintenance departments, and the collective sum of knowledge they possessed on the NAV/Audio/BT portion of the vehicle systems was less than what my 4-year old Labrador Retriever understands! And BTW, why are the dealerships so bent on keeping the secret about who makes the radios for Nissan? If they were more forthcoming with that specific make/model information, it'd be a lot easier to know where to begin on the software/equipment update journey, and that'd translate into a whole bunch more happy customers.
Also, can anyone recommend the best video bypass product to get around the parking brake concern? And finally, is there a way to bring satellite TV into the vehicle, even though it has allegedly been outlawed in this country>? Thanks!
