While I was there, I walked over to the ticket appeals desk, which happened to be staffed this morning by the guy who did my transportation "onboarding" session in July. I remembered his name (it's Mark) and said hi, and said while I was there, I should take care of the ticket I got a couple of weeks ago for parking longer than 30 minutes in a 30-minute space. I told him I was sheepish about getting distracted and not getting back to my car within 30 minutes. He asked how much over it was, and I said about 20 minutes, and he reduced the ticket to a warning. It pays to be friendly! That's $20 I can use for something else.
I've now driven around the Sonata a bit more, since I had a lunch meeting in Collegetown and wanted to deposit a check from the weekend. It's not perfect at dealing with the iPhone as an iPod, but it seems functional enough. I even paired my phone via Bluetooth, so I can answer calls if I need to.
