If'n I had an iphone, I'd ask Siri.....................

Are you sure Pandora isn't already loaded on it??

Slacker was on my Andriod, that's why I ask.

If not, just go to their site and download it.

I downloaded "StormTracker Weather".. ----Nice radar maps.

i havent learned everything yet, but with pandora you can stream it through blue tooth from your phone. press the sync button and say bluetooth audio, start pandora on your phone and away you go! i have used google music from my old android and i could change the song with the steering wheel controls this way as well

There's a weather app that comes with iOS on the iPhone. I like The Weather Channel App better.

You can get this app and Pandora using the iTunes app on the phone or iTunes on your PC. As mentioned, Pandora or any of the streaming music services will play over Bluetooth if you have that setup on your truck.

Cheers,
Braddog

Pandora is a free download. Do yourself a favor, if you're going to subscribe to eliminate commercials, do it online. You pay a one-time fee, and it's cheaper by about $1 or $2 per month.

No idea how to sync with Sync, don't have my truck for two more weeks.

If I understand your question, you are asking about things appearing on the trucks display from your phone...

None of those items will show up there, they will only appear on the phone.

Sorry if I misunderstood.

Incorrect. If you have Pandora, Slacker, etc. you can get the Navigation to display current song, artist, etc. Even thumbs up or thumps down in Pandora right on the Navigation screen. The thing to remember is that you have to have the USB cable hooked up at the same time as Bluetooth streaming.

Just use the same cable that came with your iPhone.
