    I bought a new 2012 Scion today and was pleasantly surprised to find that the iPhone 5 And stock USB cable plugged into the radio and charged and transferred audio fine with no issues. The radio was able to recognize all the playlists artist songs and whatnot and allow me to navigate problem free. The Bluetooth works great and Siri integration into the car is virtually seamless. From the day I got the phone on September 21 I had no issues or problems.

    I have had literally ZERO problems with my iPhone 5 since I bought it on September 22nd. I love it more than any phone I have ever owned.

    I'll add a positive for a laugh.

    Today I used Apple Maps Turn-By-Turn as we were stuck in traffic. It came up with 3 routes.

    Compared it to Google Maps, and Apple trumped it - it came up with a superb route that was the only way through traffic & roadworks that Google missed!

    Saved me about 35min of sitting in traffic. Very happy, thank you.

    Rare???? What are you talking about? The reviews on the iPhone 5 are phenomenal! It's all the trolls and picky people in these forums crying about the smallest things that gives you a perseption that iPhone 5 has no positive reviews.

    Sounds more like a backhanded compliment to me. Your post is no better than all of the people directly trying to hype the minor problems some are having.

    I would think that the vast majority of iPhone 5 owners are pleased with their new phones, albeit some issues.

    Nobody I've spoken to outside the forums has had any issues except one friend who's iPhone 5 was stolen. Only negative stuff I catch I read here.

    The point he is making is that they're aren't many automobile issues with Bluetooth connections, Siri integration, audio transfer, etc. not working properly with the iPhone 5. So by u saying it actually works in ur car is kind of a backhanded, almost sarcastic comment.

    Yes, that was my point exactly.

    Agreed.

    If I could improve one thing I wish they had a 2,000+ mAh battery in this sucker but for the most part I'm completely thrilled.

    A+ product!

    I remember people expressing concerns that the new lightning connector would have issues transmitting audio since its now digital instead of analog. And since all the other components in the world were designed to the old iPhones analog design that this would cause issues.

    I'm also just tired of reading all the complainy posts about the iP5. I thought something positive wound be appreciated. But some still complained about a positive thread. Haters gonna hate I guess.

    I suppose so. I haven't been bored since I got my new iP5.

    I listen to all the negativity about the lightning interface and how all the old docks and accessories would be broken.

    Plugged in into a 2010 Infiniti and the radio charged, playlist, steering controls, cover art, Bluetooth audio, phone directory all worked just fine.

    Maps also worked better than the two year old in car GPS on two different occasions.

    Enjoy your Scion

    I love my phone. I love the shared streams. I can share pics of my 5 month old from my mac or phone with family. Then again any phone I get I love. Because I know what I'm getting into. I always read reviews before buying. And every year the iPhone has good reviews. But since its such a popular phone any small issue gets blown out of proportion.

    I doubt it's rare that people enjoy their i5. ;) It seems rare for me to have an issue with it (other than not being able to jb it lol).
