Issue #1: Bluetooth audio will stutter a bit during the first ~30 seconds of operation (I'm thinking turning of phone book auto download might fix this, bandwidth issue??, just speculation)

Issue #2: I was using spotify per usual and the car skipped to the next track like I had pressed the advance button. It made the sound and everything. Really odd, it did it twice on the same track so maybe it is somehow the track. Who knows.

My setup is an iphone 5, spotify premium, bluetooth only. I hope this is just a fluke because aside from this MFT is working better with my phone now than it ever has in the past. Metadata updates correctly and my phone stays paired for once. Anyone have some experience with issues like these? Also, please don't turn this into a Android vs iphone or a Microsoft blame game thread.

Thanks all
I only listen to music in the car via BT streaming and use Spotify Premium on a 4S with iOS 6.0.1 (latest). I haven't experienced #2 but #1 has happened both on 3.0.2 and on 3.5.1. It's infrequent but can happen after the first 30 seconds of operation. A song will start to lag and then skip, sometimes repeatedly and changing the track won't help. It's often just one skip but it has skipped/lagged for ~10-20 seconds before (on 3.0.2). So far on 3.5.1, I've only experienced a single skip, randomly, every once in a while. I have yet to figure out what is causing it but doing a quick reset on the phone (power button+home button) will fix it temporarily. I thought it may be a phone network connection issue but it's never skipped while off Bluetooth before.
