Currently finding a commonly used phone number is a painful affair, require many button clicks to locate and dial a specific number from the contacts list (when the contact list is large).
Allow any contact phone numbers to be dropped into a specific speed dial button (with a default to the next empty location). Include a separate pane for one-button touch of speed dials. Each button shows the contact’s name and number.
A bonus would make it easy to select speed dials from the steering wheel – perhaps showing in the right-pane of the instrument cluster and allowing the scroll wheel to scan and select.
This feature is available on most cars that have integrated bluetooth phone connections.
