Re: the Ipod issue. I had a sneaky /hopeful suspicion that it was not the UConnect system. As some of may remember, I love my music collection (I wrote a few mini reviews of the Premium System) so I've been rocking an Ipod Classic 160gb for years. Yes it has it's limitations but I just never wanted to budge and get the Ipod touch.... (too small storage) So I thought....... Anyway, my issues connecting and using Ipod were driving me nutz, I've tried 4 different 30 pin cables etc.Maybe try a reset.
So I went to Best Buy a little bit ago, and bought a 128gb Ipod Touch ($$$$$$$!! Damn it!).
I just felt that the slow load times with the U-Connect system (4 minutes just to show the library) and sporadic play issues, that it could be the Ipod itself . It's old, I can hear the hard drive in it whining a bit. (New technology trying to talk to old technology, I guess). So after loading up the new Touch, 8400 tracks, all with Album art and perfectly organized and coded, I just went out to Ruby... Issue solved! It rocks, it loaded 8400 tracks 400/500 albums I think, in like 15/20 seconds. All artwork shows, and I can browse on the Ipod touch or the UConnect system, by Playlist, Artist, Album, or Songs and play songs from either. (not possible with the old classic). I didn't bluetooth connect but it I will try... I'm an Android phone guy (Apple for everything else) and generally I don't like turning my phone over to the vehicle, which to get Android Car, or whatever it's called, you have to do. Now I can use the Ipod touch for those connected features Apple Car play or whatever it's called! And still keep my Note 8 unattached. So, plenty of options and 55 gigs still left on the Ipod. ( I guess storage space wasn't a real issue.....) I'm stubborn. So aside from my UConnect reseting itself once, no real issues to report, but I'm still going to follow this thread and make the calls. You got to stay on this shit so they can get it right. It could be one of us next, if it already isn't. I still want my Off Road pages too!
