Wow...didn't gather that it was a non iDrive phonebook from the manual. Thanks so much for solving that mystery.
I have tried dialing names from my iPhone phonebook. Perhaps I have too many contacts (a few hundred) so it seems pretty confused at least 50% of the time and picks the wrong name. I'll go to plan B and add a few contacts with just first name that I call often and try it that way.
Thanks so much for the assist. I sincerely appreciate it.
