Question about the nav system and contacts/address book

With all the talk of the eyesight models getting VINs, we're starting to get excited again for our 6/21 order which will hopefully be here in a few weeks! Our only point of reference for in car nav systems is the honda fit that we have, which has an address book that is pretty lacking.

We've looked through the user manual and can't really find anything - how does the address book on the 2015 OB nav work? Will it pull in your phone contacts and make them available as navigable addresses? Can you categorize addresses/contacts? Is a phone the only way to bulk import an address list? We would have liked to use the address book on the fit extensively, but it was a PAIN to get contacts in.

Anyways, can anyone point us to a manual that sdiscusses contacts? Maybe we overlooked it. Or can someone talk about their experiences with contact and nav?

Thanks! Anxiously awaiting our 3.6r.

I played around with my navi but looks like you have to manually put address into favorite.

Also, I have not found a way to transfer the saved favorites from one car to the next or to back them up! I have lost them all twice now on my '13 because of radio/nav upgrades. As a result, I use a Garmin alongside my Subie Nav. Garmins are easy to back up or transfer.

If anyone knows how to save the Subie favorites, I would love to know!
