Hi everyone!

I just wanted to jump in and clarify, the Audio/Video Remote Control Profile (AVRCP) is the Bluetooth standard that provides audio streaming functionality; the BT Audio functionality varies depending on the version of AVRCP that is on SYNC and your device.

A SYNC Gen 1 vehicle currently has AVRCP 1.0. This version does not support data transfer, which is the why you won't see any song information displayed via SYNC when streaming via BT Audio. The SYNC engineering team is currently investigating on including a higher version of AVRCP for a future release (via a SYNC update).

A MyFord Touch-equipped vehicle (Gen 2) already includes AVRCP 1.3 functionality, and this version does support data transfer. This increases the chances that the song information would be displayed via SYNC, providing that the media player includes a higher version of AVRCP as well.

Hope this helps!

Do you have to ask it start playing Bluetooth Audio EVERY FRIGGIN TIME?!

Like copernicium112 said, you can enable Autoplay. With this feature on, the system will automatically switch to the media source upon initial
connection and you can listen to music which has already been indexed. With this feature off, the system will not automatically switch to the inserted media source. You can find this option using the following menu sequence: Menu > Settings > Media player.

Let me know if you have additional questions!
